    Didn't see these post anywhere yet.
    Looks like she and YuNa may skate together again. Articles say the MK suggested it "but is worried about her rusty skate" since she hasn't skated since her last appearance with YuNA. It would be so nice to see her on the ice again.

    Excerpt:
    Another Korean news article about Kwan's trip to Seoul last week: http://view.koreaherald.com/kh/view.php?ud=20120621001000

    Associated Press news brief (June 22): Michelle Kwan, others chosen for US women’s sports diplomacy panel

    Am I the only one who has accepted that Yu Na will not be competing again?

    Perish the thought!! :drama:

    For what it's worth, I think her life has taken on a different direction since leaving competition and she's found her way in other things.

    I'd love to see her compete again but I don't feel she's coming back. It'd be a shock to me if she did...a welcomed shock, but a shock nonetheless.

    Just lovely and classy! Look how she glows with excitement when talking about her roles and hops for Special Olympics! There have been many, many skaters who found their next-skating-life successfully, but for me, Michelle is the most accomplished one with qualities that make her the best serving ambassador for the sport.

    Le cute story about Yuna's reaction at their first encounter:rofl:
