Kim Yu-Na: Figure Skating: Net Worth- $21 million
The South Korean Kim Yu-Na was worth her weight in gold as an active figure skater. She was able to amass a staggering fortune of $21 million largely because of her fine performances in the skating rink. Through her performance, she was able to contribute to her earnings by putting pen to paper on several profitable endorsement deals. During the height of her popularity in 2013, Kim Yuna was able to accumulate around $8 million alone in sponsorship deals. She came to prominence in the 2010 Winter Olympics when she won the coveted Gold Medal in Ladies´ Singles. She is rightly considered a national treasure in South Korea.
