Time Magazine's Top 100 Most Influential People

Every year, TIME Magazine issues its list of the 100 most influential people in the world, stemming from varied genres, and honoring all kinds of achievement and notoriety.  This year, Kim Yu-Na has been named to the TIME's Top 100 list!  In an article written by Michelle Kwan, another figure skater known for her beautifully artistic routines, she recalls a meeting with Yu-Na last summer.  Kwan was delighted to learn that Yu-Na had memorized her routines from previous Olympics and pretended that she was a skater competing herself, at the tender age of 7.  Little did she know that 12 years later, a little girl's dream would be realized?

Quoted from the article, found here:

"Those 6 1/2 minutes on the ice left not only a mark in the record book but also an indelible impression on millions of girls around the world."

Congratulations to Kim Yu-Na for another great honor!
