BURBANK (AP) — Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yu-na is set to train in Los Angeles. Although for how long and under whose tutelage still remain to be seen.

Since splitting from her longtime coach Brian Orser in a public spat last month, Kim had remained coy on her future plans.

Kim eliminated some of the mystery on Tuesday, confirming she would be moving her training base from Canada to Artesia on the outskirts of Los Angeles.

Kim, who alongside skating great Michelle Kwan will star in an upcoming on-ice special in Los Angeles in October, did not say whether the move was a permanent one or whether it was just temporarily coinciding with the show.
