A South Korean figure skater has left the internet in awe after going viral for her perfect first pitch at a Korean Baseball Organization baseball game.
Kim Ye-Lim, a decorated figure skater who competed at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, was tapped to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Friday's game between Korean teams SSG Landers and KIA Tigers.
The throw itself was fantastic—certainly not the amateurish sort of toss we're used to with ceremonial first pitches.
But for extra panache, Kim put a skater's twist on the pitch, launching herself in an acrobatic airborne spin before balletically taking her place on the pitcher's mound.
Video of the pitch has gone viral on social media, and people are absolutely loving Kim's show of prowess.
Pretty sure absolutely nobody in America on baseball's Opening Day last week did anything that even came close to what Kim did. There are currently no medals for throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game, but after what Kim did someone should make one.
Given Kim's accomplishments as a skater, it should be no surprise she rose to the first-pitch occasion as well.
At just 19, Kim is already one of South Korea's top figure skaters, having won three golds, six silvers and four bronzes since her first competitive season in 2014.
And at this year's Beijing Olympics—surely the first of many for her—she placed ninth in the women's single skating competition, and second in the South Korean team.
It wasn't just the roaring crowd in South Korea that were impressed by Kim's acrobatic baseball prowess.
People all over the world were absolutely awestruck and took to the internet to applaud the young skater.
Looks like Kim's future is extra bright any way you slice it.
Even if the skating doesn't work out, she can just switch to baseball.
