Choi Ji-eun (born May 25, 1988 in Daejeon, South Korea) is a South Korean figure skater who currently works as a coach. She is the 2004–2006 South Korean silver medalist. She won the bronze medal at the 2006 Junior Grand Prix event in Hungary and has competed in three World Figure Skating Championships.


She began skating at age 10.[1]

Choi was the leading South Korean senior skater in 2005. She attempted to qualify South Korea a spot in the ladies event at the 2006 Olympics, but placed 11th at the KSM, and so did not qualify.

Choi won the bronze medal at the 2007 National among four senior ladies,[2] however the ISU has a wrong result of the Nationals.

Choi has been credited with performing a flying layback spin in competition.[3] She is one of the few skaters to achieve this distinction.
