Skating star Kim feels nerves of bid presentation

Kim Yu-na has performed in front of thousands of spectators and millions of TV viewers on the biggest stages in figure skating. Yet, the reigning Olympic champion says she has never felt nerves or pressure like this.
The 20-year-old South Korean will be addressing a roomful of International Olympic Committee members on Wednesday as she helps to pitch Pyeongchang's bid for the 2018 Winter Games.
Kim says "I'm more nervous than when I was competing in the Olympics. I'm afraid of making mistakes, but a lot of people are helping me."
Pyeongchang is competing against Munich and Annecy, France. The IOC will select the host city on July 6.
