Yuna Kim said she deserved to win a silver medal at the Sochi Olympics, where controversial judging awarded the gold to Russian Adelina Sotnikova.
“The classification I received was what I deserved,” Kim told L’Osservatore Romano, a Vatican City newspaper.
The 2010 Olympic gold medalist also said she didn’t blame anyone for what happened six months ago.
In June, the Korea Skating Union’s complaints about the judging were dismissed by the International Skating Union, which found no bias from Russian judge Alla Shekhovtseva, who is married to a top Russian figure skating federation official and was seen hugging Sotnikova shortly after she won gold.
Kim, 23, retired after Sochi and has been linked to interest in graduate school and coaching.

As expected the U.S. took gold in both men’s and women’s basketball, with the men winning their third consecutive Olympic gold medal and the women running their streak to six straight. But there was a lot more to take in at the basketball venues, including Serbia’s men’s team winning their first Olympic basketball medal (as an independent nation), and Spain doing the same in the women’s bracket.
