    I am sure this is a really dumb question......but...why is the reigning OGM going to a Senior B event?

    IIRC, Yuna reasoned that she wasn't invited from any grand prix event. Yuna also added that even if she was invited, she wouldn't have participated in one because she knows she wouldn't be ready in time for a grand prix event. Plus, because of the new minimum TES rule required to be able to compete at major ISU events, Yuna must attend some competition before 4cc or Worlds to obtain those scores.

    The moment it is announced which senior B she is competing in, expect all the flights from Korea to that event to sell out!

    Congrats on your first post, Butterfly! Post often and have fun:)

    That's an incredible honor for the both parties, Yuna and LV. The same class recognizes each other.


    And, when will she ever announce her training/competition details? People are waitin'!

    Yu-Na will skate at NRW Trophy (Dortmund, Germany, 5-9 Dec), ATS (her agency) said. She will premiere her new SP and LP programs at the event, which is to be the first in 20 months for her. She will be filing an entry to Golden Spin of Zagreb (13-16 Dec) too, as an alternate schedule.

    ^ Nothing spectacularly new, but she'll leave for Germany on 5th and Yuna also signed up for Golden Spin in Zagrev in case things don't go as planned.

    Apparently, a Korean broadcasting company, which I guess is SBS, will be covering the NRW trophy!

    Today, on her way to NRW Trophy, Yu-Na rated her physical conditioning at "more than 80% (of the peak level)".

    "Physically, the most difficult part of the buildup to this event has been getting my strength back," she said. "I basically had to start from scratch, but I was able to overcome that because I was more relaxed than before. I enjoyed myself more than I had in the past."

    Rest of the article: Free of stress, Kim Yu-Na believes hard work will pay off
