Oh boy. The press con was IN KOREA. So no big deal. It's not like it was televised all around the world. :rolleyes:

And johnny158, please stop posting. You made us even look worst. :rolleyes:

Oh, a comeback that starts with a press conference . . . never a good sign.

Wat it the case with Ito circa 1996? :P

2) I hope this is what she REALLY wants and she's not being pressured into this by her federation. There's a difference between enjoying skating in shows, and skating in competition.

Im afraid this is the only reason she will comeback :(
pressure from her fed, country and fans. in her article interviews she said she just wants to give her best but will set her aims lower. but ona good note
so many comebacks Mini, Yuna . Ladies will be ineteresting again

I for one am thrilled that Yu-Na is back. I love her skating. I think most of her sps are among my favourite skates ever and I have been watching since the 80's. All the girls are going to have up their game now. I have no problem believing she will be in shape for Sochi. Personally I would love for her to be a double gold medalist. I just hope she finds a good coach. She and Brian seemed a good fit but one never knows. I think David Wilson is terrific and have no fears about her programs. Go Yu-Na! Sound fan girlish enough? Or like someone who has a couple of ales? I blame on the Ontario heat wave.

Are you some kind of Idiot? Then What is your opinion? Tell me.

Don't be mean, or elusive. Just tell your high opinion.


Stop stabbing someone's back in the shade. Just tell your opinions. I don't think you are sharp or smart. always thought you are a stupid snob.


Just out of curiosity are you still in elementary school? Because it sounds like you think you are the playground bully!:rolleyes:

However, you actually resemble the comments you posted.:lol:

I kind of found it amusing. I assume the poster is in 4th grade (at least mentally) :lol: Reminds me of why I don't miss school...

I would love to be wrong in my opinion....cause I think Yu-Na is one of the most beautiful skaters to ever grace the ice......however, I can't imagine she can (or would) go back to the life she had where she was totally and single-mindedly focused on one goal...,.,that OGM.

After two years of "freedom" and an actual life, I can't imagine that she (or anyone) could find the inner strength to go back to the kind of regimen she would have to put herself back into, to come back at a level with which she would be satisfied.

Was Michelle ever labelled "arrogant" when she decided to go coach less at the Olympics? I don't recall that she was. And how many competitions was she in prior to her last Olympic bid? Only one cheesfest at which only her short was skated, I believe.

The word "insane" was used more often, but yes, I remember Michelle being labeled "arrogant."

She stated that she will train in Korea, but I don't think there is a coach capable of handling skater of her caliber.

It's Korean coaches who gave her her basics and it's Korean coaches who coached her to her first international titles.

Why wouldn't they be capable of handling her?

She can always consult with other coaches.

I mean for example, she could have her jumps recorded and then the videos sent to a foreign specialist who would analyse them on Dartfish and give tips.


Oh, a comeback that starts with a press conference . . . never a good sign.

:huh:

Kim is a superstar in Korea, obviously her decision to return to competition is major news there.

Also, she surely wants endorsement and sponsorship deals out of this. Hence, she needs to keep her profile as high as possible.

I was thinking of the Evan Lysacek and Shawn Johnson celebrity type of comeback when I wrote that, which has not really yielded much in athletic results :shuffle:

I was hoping Yu Na would do it more the athlete way rather than the celebrity way, that is register to compete, train, compete, and collect platinum medals. I like to think of skating as a sport rather than a pageant.

I'm certain Yu Na wants endorsement deals and sponsorship, but I'm certain she has more than enough money to cover the cost of competing, so any new deals would not exactly be to support her training.

Somebody mentioned Midori Ito earlier in the thread. Her comeback in 1996 just made her miserable and also did not yield much except a bleeding ulcer.
