Olympic figure skating gold medalist Kim Yuna will miss two upcoming Grand Prix events due to a foot injury, according to news reports.

Kim first felt pain in her right foot during training last month, and recent test results showed she has an injured metatarsal, the Korea Skating Union said. She will be forced to sit out for six weeks before starting the rehabilitation process, which will likely take her out of the entire Grand Prix season.

The 23-year-old was scheduled to compete at Skate Canada at the end of October and then compete at Trophee Eric Bompard in November. The International Skating Union said she withdrew from both events due to the injury.

Kim's injury will also hinder her preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, as the two-time world figure skating champion is vying for her second-straight Olympic gold medal.

Although Kim dealt with various back and knee injuries in this past, this is the first time she suffered a right foot injury, which is her landing foot for all of her jumps.
