    Ditto. Why hire someone if she isn't going to use her/him?

    I can't wait for next season to start.
    It will be great watching beautiful skating from not only Yuna, but also Mirai and Laura.
    I'm also eager to see how much improvement Ksenia Butylskova will make.

    Now, it will be interesting how these new rules affect Yuna or the other skaters.

    Glad she won't. Gal is a real deal.

    I hope she can go forward without the insane pressure she seemed to be under from the Korean media and fans this Olympic season. I'd certainly like to see her grow and develop even more!

    After winning the OGM, Alexei Urmanov competed for 4 more seasons. He eventually won all the major championships except the Worlds.

    Yu-Na has already won all of the major championships she's eligible for.
    But hopefully she'll show a more relaxed version of herself for this coming season and really enjoys competing.

    True, but I'd love to see her try and recapture her World title, and do programs with a 3lo and 3a so she can have successfully done a program with the complete set of triple jumps. Plus the fact that she has won every title makes me think she may chose to compete less, maybe just grand prix and worlds, skip 4CC, WTT and any other minor competitions, or if she doesn't want the pressure of qualifying for the final, maybe just one GP event. I'd love to see her compete at all the competitions but if a less busy schedule allows her to do what she wants in life on top of skating, then I'm all for it.

    I hope Yu-Na can do this sport for herself , deliver her performances to the audience and inspire other girls.

    Winning or losing the title would be the result to be respected.

    First of all, keep going without injuries.

    Yu-na is my favorite ladies skater. I think she's the best in the business right now. However, I think there is a difference between winning all the major competitions once, and winning them, say, 4 years in a row. It's great to win Worlds once, but to win it several times is a totally different and IMHO much better thing. I don't think she should feel any less motivated to win again just because she's won before. The point in skating is to be consistent.
