I think logistics play a major role in Kwan's decision-making process. She has been in school all skating season and this year (until recently). Kwan had an Olympic Commentary gig. Kwan has State Dept. commitments. She is involved in other activities, charities, organizations, etc. She is busy! Like others have said, I think the timing of Yu Na's shows has been favorable for Kwan -- during school downtime. And, while the location is less than perfect coming from the U.S., the circumstances are very favorable, including good production with $ and backing (not a cheesy show), presumably good money, high visibility, and opportunity for Kwan to continue to build her friendship with Yu Na and participate in an activity/sport that she has trained for and loved nearly her entire life. And Kwan can do all that without having the responsibility of putting on the show herself, as others have said. Seems like a win-win situation for her. If a similar situation was available to her in the U.S., I thinks she would similarly take advantage of it.
