Kim Yuna, the 2010 Olympic champ in ladies’ singles figure skating who took the silver at the Sochi Winter Games last month, met hundreds of her enthusiastic fans at a Seoul shopping mall on Tuesday.

“Going in, I felt like I would be still be disappointed if I don’t win the gold, since I am human after all,” she said. “But after it was all said and done, I concluded that I really wasn’t that desperate for the gold.”
