Figure skater Lim Eun-soo finished in 10th place in the ISU World Figure Skating Championships in Saitama, Japan on Friday.
Lim earned 132.66 points in the ladies' free skate -- her best performance of the season -– giving her a combined score of 205.57 points as she scored 72.91 points in the short program a couple of days earlier.
Lim became the second Korean female skater after Kim Yu-na to surpass 200 points in an ISU-sanctioned competition.
She also became only the fourth Korean female skater to make a top 10 finish at the world championships, following Kim, Park So-youn who finished ninth in 2014, and Choi Da-bin who came 10th in 2017.
Olympic champion Alina Zagitova of Russia took the top spot at the podium with 237.50 points. Elizabet Tursynbaeva of Kazakhstan became the first woman to land a quadruple jump in senior international competition but had to satisfy with a silver medal and Evgenia Medvedeva of Russia took a bronze medal.
Meanwhile, Mariah Bell of the U.S., who found herself embroiled in controversy after colliding with Lim during a practice session before the short program, finished ninth with 208.07 points.
She reportedly met with Lim on the day of the free skate competition and apologized.
