Yuna Kim is starting the New Year on familiar ground as she begins practicing her short program and free skate at the 2014 Korean Figure Skating Nationals.

After sustaining a foot injury during the 2013-2014 Grand Prix season, Yuna Kim returned to competition ice at the Golden Spin in Zagreb last month, debuting her Olympic short program and free skate.
