Yuna Kim‘s star power in South Korea has lasted much longer than 15 minutes, but that’s how long it took for tickets to sell out for her final competitive event in her home country.
The South Korea Figure Skating Championships tickets went on sale Friday at 1 p.m. local time and sold out by 1:15, according to Asian news outlet arirang.
The competition takes place Jan. 3-5 in Goyang, near Seoul. Overall, 3,100 tickets were sold. On Monday a remaining 800 tickets will be released, arirang reported.
Kim, the 2010 Olympic champion, has said that she will retire following this season, meaning Nationals will be her final competitive event in South Korea.
After taking time away from the sport, Kim won World Championships in 2013 in March. Earlier this month, she skated for the first time since then, winning a small event in Croatia.
