    Orser interview - What did he do after the victory ceremony at the Olympics?

    Brian Orser's interview was aired on KBS on March 27.

    http://office.kbs.co.kr/cyberpr/785401

    It was a very touching interview. And some of his remarks are quite interesting.

    "The evening after she won was very simple. Because she is really quite simple. We didn't have a big party.
    She took a moment to put the (gold) medal around each of us one at a time,
    she put it on around my neck and give me a hug.
    (She) did the same with David (and) did the same with her parents.
    It was really beautiful. And we each had a little speech and they thanked David and thanked me. She(Yuna) was crying.
    It was very emotional. It was nice....

    ....I never had a Olympic gold medal. That's probably the closest I've been other than looking at somebody's next me on the podium....

    ....This was special for me. I thought it was so beautiful when she took it off herself and put it over my neck. That was really touching...."


    What a connection Yuna, Brian and David have made!

    According to the KBS press release on the interview, Orser also said that he trained Yuna emphasizing skating skills like flow on the ice, rhythm and music transition.
    And he told Yuna absorbed his and David's teaching so quickly that she could show everything he and David instructed on the next day.
    That could be one of the reasons Yuna could show her two programs so perfectly even early in the season.

    My overall impression on his interview was that he seemed to feel a special bond with Yuna. Quite a moving interview!

    These pics captured the moment when Yuna shared her joy with Brian, David and her physiotherapist after winning the Olympic gold.

    Orser said "I hope Yu-Na to be happy. After yesterday's competition, I asked her if she was happy. She said yes. After hearing that, I also felt happy." and he smiled.

    A coach-pupil relationship is one based on contracts, but there seems to be a sense of true partnership, respect and sincerity between these two. What a wonderful moment it should have been to those who were there that evening.

    Brian Orser has always seemed so incredibly classy. How nice that he's found such a talented skater who appreciates him so much.

    Thanks for posting the links and the pictures.

    Darn, I wish there were subtitles on that video! It sounds like they've developed a really special relationship. I loved the portrait of Yuna, Brian and David!

    Random observation: Brian has a couple of beautiful Toller Cranston pieces in his place!
    Voidy Swan, Dirty Carmen, Perverted Moonlight Sonata. God I love figure skating!

    He is a class act! It's just a shame he came along at the same time as some other great skaters or he would have had the Gold medal.

    But his actions always have impressed me as the type of person you would want to coach your kids. He understands the ups and downs and seems to really care about his skaters overall, not just thier "performance", but them as people!

    Yuna talked about her relationship with Brian Orser at her book(Kim Yu-na's Seven-Minute Drama) signing event on April 24th.

    She said, "being my full-time coach was a career change decision for Brian. I didn't want him to be disappointed (at his decision) so that I trained harder."

    Yuna also added, "We both trust each other and I followed his advice well. I think that's why everything turned out right."

    Isn't it remarkable such a young girl felt responsible for her coach?
