South Korea's star figure skater Kim Yu-Na won the ladies' short program at the Four Continents Championships in Vancouver with a record-high score of 72.27 points, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday.

Kim stood in the top place of the ladies' short program after earning 42.20 for technical elements and 30.04 for program components, thanks to her textbook-perfect jumps and artistic performance, according to Yonhap.

Her new record stood at 72.27 points, 0.27 points up from the existing highest score record, 71.95, which she accomplished earlier in 2007 World Championships.

Asada Mao, Kim's rival of Japan, was ranked 6th due to mistakes in jumps and spins.

Kim will continue her challenge for a gold medal in the ladies' free program on Friday.

The Four Continents Figure Skating Championships were launched in Vancouver on Monay and will finish on Sunday.
