    No offence, but is that all it is?

    And to both of you too.

    I'm glad she's working hard on her programmes.

    Curious -

    1. Does she ever compete at Korean Nats, or would she this season simply because she needs to get her programs out on the ice?

    2. Would she also consider doing this for 4CC's? Again, she needs to get the programs out there....

    She was a junior champ and 4 time senior champ in 5 years in a row. And no she wouldn't.

    Probably Yu-Na is looking for a new challenge - competing at Worlds with new programs and no "warm up" competition before. :-)
    I hope she really comes to Tokyo.

    She may have won the OGM in high style but consider her lack of same at the next worlds. Might that be in the back of her mind somewhere once she shows up to compete? It has been a while since she's been in a competition. I remember Michelle Kwan doing something similar (ok, so she wasn't the OGM'ist) and that didn't turn out so well (and she had alot more competition experience than Yu Na. all the same, I wish her the best and look forward to seeing her compete. I supposed it will be shown somewhere...

    Thanks for the link. It's been a while since I thought of Naomi Nari Nam. I didn't realize she was coaching.

    This IS impressive!
    Every morning, Kwan’s father, Danny, greets the skaters at the door.

    It will be really interesting to see how she does. It does not take long time to forget how to act under pressure. After taking a year off school I had totally forgot how to get mentally ready for difficult exams. And mental side is really important in figure skating like we all know.

    But anyway, I hope she will do well.

    Nope. The programs will be opened to the public NEXT MARCH.
    OK. Thanks. Regardless of how talented someone is, I think it's a bit dangerous to debut your programs at Worlds especially with a coaching change.
