Olympic figure-skating champion Kim Yuna of South Korea and Michelle Kwan have close ties, and the relationship was reinforced Tuesday when Kim announced that Peter Oppegard is her new coach.

Oppegard has been Kwan's brother-in-law since he married her sister, Karen, in 2001. And he coaches at East West Ice Palace, a rink in Artesia owned by the Kwan family.
