Can Yuna Kim Channel Her Inner Katarina Witt?

Katarina Witt went undefeated in the 1987-88 season

As Yuna Kim prepares to defend her World title this week, it's worth noting that a win would make her undefeated all season long. Who was the last Olympic ladies champion to produce a flawless season in the year she won? None other than Katarina Witt in 1988. Shizuka Arakawa (2006), Sarah Hughes (2002), Tara Lipinski (1998), Oksana Baiul (1994) and Kristi Yamaguchi (1992) all had blemished records in the same season they won Olympic gold.

Yuna Kim goes for a perfect season this week.
