Kim scored 150.06 points in the free program on Thursday night (local time) and a new world record total of 228.56 points to earn South Korea its first ever Olympic gold medal in figure skating.

Japan’s Mao Asada and Canada’s Joannie Rochette retained their position from the short program to win the silver and bronze.
