    watching her interview.. she seems uncomfortable talking in English..:) based from the interview if Pyeongchang gets the bid for 2018 winter olympics, looks like Yuna is considering skating up tp 2018! well see.. :lol:

    Thanks for posting the interview. I really enjoyed watching it.
    I don't think she is uncomfortable speaking English. She's probably just a bit out of practice after being in Korea for a longer time now, but her English is just fine. She looks great.

    That would be so awesome. I can definitely see it happening. She will be 27, and even if she is no longer competitive, just taking the ice at the Olympics in her home country would be so special. And if anyone can still compete at the top level at age 27 and shoot for a medal, it would be Yuna. She just needs to pace herself well for the next 7 years.

    agree, it'll be great just to skate in home country, after all what she has done for Korean skating.
    and then....Irina was 27 in Torino, don't count 27y.o. out on medal because of age ;)

    Exactly. And Evgeni Plushenko was 27 when he won the silver in Vancouver.
