    the excitement for yuna would be this ↓~

    I sensed that she's taking this Worlds event particularly seriously because it is a real challenge for her, and I think she's enjoying that;)

    Indeed, year 2010 has been an unbelievable year for the Queen. Olympic Champion, Time 100 Most Influential People in the World, Sportswoman of the Year, UNICEF Ambassador, etc. etc.

    And I believe Yuna will be ready to give another unforgettable performance when March comes! Can't wait till the Worlds!

    I think she'll be able to win with even a forgettable performance. I wish that wasn't so, Yunah is not my favourite. But who can beat her? Mao (who is my favourite) is reinventing herself and appears to be out for the season as a serious competitor. Alissa (another favourite of mine) is unlikely to beat even a forgettable Kim. Miki is not in Yunah's class. Who's left to challenge her?

    A healthy, Olympic-shape Mirai would give her a run for her money.

    I've really taken a liking to Yu-Na these past 2 years, I wish her well. :)

    I wouldn't disregard Alissa (if she's there) as when she's on the judges love her. Rightly so too (in my opinion) I might add.

    The difference between Yu-Na and the others is that they all had feedback on their programs. They know what levels they'll get on their spins and footwork and how to make them better. The GPS is the time for skaters to get the kinks out of their programs.

    I know Yu-Na was in her own class for two years but even for a skater of her caliber, I think she should get some type of feedback on her programs in a competitive format before competing at Worlds. Plus, with the rule changes this season, I definitely think she should at least go to 4CC.

    I wouldn't count out Miki, Alissa or any of the other skaters who have performed well this season. The ice is always slippery.

    I wouldn't count out Alissa or Miki. They can both put up big numbers when they skate well.

    First to win a WC without participating in any ISU competition during the season or getting feedbacks from the judges?

    (just want to stay on topic :D)

    Please do not assume that Alissa will even be competing at Worlds. She may of course, but we don't know that at this point.

    Hopefully one day the truth about the Brian/Yu-Na thing will surface - and a very different picture will be painted than the one thrown around in the media.

    I should add that Yu-Na is completely innocent re the split.

    would she really be the first one to do so? wow.. that would be impressive if she pulls off a win :D

    i think she was the only female athlete in the list though

    101. 6th richest female athlete in the world (source)
    (the article says 2008 olympic champion though.. fail)

    Proves that she's breaking gender barriers too! :) I know ladies who would be preferred to be called "sportsmen" because it doesn't bring gender in to the context since that doesn't matter. I guess it's just all a matter of taste.

    Since you brought it up, what do you think of Mao approaching Orser in the first place and Orser’s own account on flirting with the idea? And that was followed by Mao’s “I was shocked to hear such rumor” comedy and JSF’s “We don’t do anything that could be detrimental to Korea-Japan relations” BS.

    Mao is not a child and she should be accountable for the contacts made for her coaching arrangement. Imagine what it would have been like if a similar thing had happened between, say, Michelle and Sasha or Irina.

    Yu-Na said she made the call herself. BTW do you know directly what her mom is like?

    sorry :p

    I, too, was so fed up with ppl throwing the same trash in every yuna's thread and I seriously wondered if anyone has something real this time :D

    maybe I should have my coffee and play the violin everytime those things come up:coffee::violin::biggrinbo


    btw, I love your quotation. "This too will pass away." Isn't it Yuna's favorite saying?

    The word 'herstory' has been created and used to tell women's stories.

    Best of luck to Kim at Worlds. :) I doubt she'll be challenged this year.

    The training footage was old from the press conference when Yuna announced her coaching change to Peter Oppegard.

    They also used some footage from a public session, which doesn't really count.

    These guys have been hanging around EWIP for the past week and were thrown out when shooting the practice session. They have since parked themselves across the street..hence the fuzzy videos of Yuna entering EWIP.

    What is it they say..all press is good press, as long as they spell your name correctly?

    I find it fascinating that Japanese TV is keeping the Yuna/Mao flames burning.

    Yeah..but it's kinda' weird, especially when Yuna was just doing her strength training.

    Well, we have 2/3 months before the Worlds! :lol:
