Kim Hae-jin (Hangul:김해진, Hanja:金海珍) (born April 23, 1997) is a South Korean figure skater. She is the 2012 JGP Slovenia champion and a three-time (2010, 2011, and 2012) South Korean national senior champion. She was selected to represent her country at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

In the 2007-2008 season, Kim placed 5th at the South Korean Championships on the novice level. A year later in 2009, she repeated that placement on the junior level.

In the 2009-2010 season, Kim competed in 2010 South Korean Championships on the senior level at age twelve. Placing first in both the short program and the free skate, she won the gold medal with 148.78 points. In April 2010, she won the novice title at the 2010 Triglav Trophy, earning 144.11 points. Her score was one of the best among the skaters who competed and the best among all the ladies. Had she competed on the senior level, she would have won the competition.

Junior career[edit]

Kim was assigned to 2010–2011 ISU Junior Grand Prix events in Japan and Germany. However, her foot was injured by another skater's skate blade in training,[1] resulting in her withdrawal from the Japan event. She made her junior international debut at the event in Germany, finishing 28th. At the 2011 South Korean Championships, she placed third in the short program scoring 46.82 points, and won the free skate with 98.47 to win her second national title.

The following season, Kim was assigned to the 2011–2012 ISU Junior Grand Prix events in Brisbane, Australia, and in Brasov, Romania. Kim won the short program in Brisbane with 52.26, but fell four times in the free skate, earning 78.76, to finish 5th with 131.02. In Brasov, Kim was placed sixth with 44.78 after one of her spins were considered invalid, but rebounded to third with 99.83, earning the bronze medal with a total score of 144.61. Kim then participated in the 2012 World Junior Championships and earned 51.56 in the short program and 98.15 in the free skate, finishing 8th overall with the total score of 149.71.[2]

In the 2012-2013 season, Kim was assigned to 2012-2013 ISU Junior Grand Prix events in Slovenia and Austria. In her first event in Austria, Kim placed third in the short program, with her triple toe-loop - triple toe-loop combination, receiving her new personal best of 54.46. However, she dropped to fifth after the free skate, where she had some trouble with her jumps. However, two weeks later, in Slovenia, she rebounded to first in the short program, and strong consistency of jumps and high levels of other elements with strong choreography helped her defend her placement in the free skate. With the total of 147.30, she became the first South Korean woman to stand on the top of the podium since Kim Yuna, the 2010 Olympic Champion, won two golds in the 2005–2006 ISU Junior Grand Prix. This made her first alternate to the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final.

Skating techniques[edit]

She landed five types of triple jumps (every one except the triple axel) in the national[which?] competition. She landed a triple toe loop-triple toe loop combination in a national competition and a triple flip-triple loop combination in an international event.[3]

Public life and endorsements[edit]

She joined 2010 Olympic ladies champion and fellow South Korean skater Kim Yuna in an ice show, the All That Skate, which was held on July 23–25, 2010 in Goyang, South Korea, alongside other skaters like Michelle Kwan, Sasha Cohen and Stéphane Lambiel.[4]
