SEOUL, South Korea - 2010 Vancouver Olympic figure skating gold medalist Kim Yuna isn't quite ready to hang up her skates.

The 21-year-old told a news conference yesterday in Seoul that she plans to compete for the gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

“I will retire after the Sochi Winter Olympics. Although the Vancouver Games were my final destination in my childhood, I have extended it to Sochi,” she said.

Speculation after weeks of thinking had led many to believe that she was done with skating, but she will return for another shot at gold.

“I have just decided to continue skating, so I have not decided on coaching staff and the program (for this upcoming season). As I sat out last season, I cannot participate in the Grand Prix events. I will search for international competitions when I become fit,” she said.
