Twenty-seven-year-old year old Catholic Olympic gold-medalist Yu-na Kim lights the torch that opens the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Yu-na and her mother converted to Catholicism in 2008 after an injury sidelined her. At her baptism, she chose the name “Stella” for Mary, Star of the Sea. She actively witnesses to her Faith at competitions and performances around the globe and works closely with Catholic Universities, hospitals and organizations. She is the spokesman for Catholic Charities in Seoul, South Korea.
