    Awesome - well deserved but really a foregone conclusion - in fact I thought she was already named. It is time she enjoyed her fruits and she has nothing left to prove - an amazing skater - maybe the best female ever.

    So happy for Yuna & the upcoming PyeongChang Olympics. I can't see any other athlete being the ambassador to be quite honest.

    We need a "Church of Yuna Kim" built for 2018
    Everyone fall down on their knees and worship!

    She will be THE face of the 2018 games. She will be everywhere there!

    Doesn't matter who wins OGM, she will preside over all the proceedings as the country's biggest sports celebrity (or public figure, period).

    I don't know about a church, but she has certainly earned the respect and admiration both of the skating world and of the Korean nation, as much by her unassuming personality as by her accomplishments in her sport.
