I wish a happy birthday to Yuna.
I wish a happy birthday to Yuna.
Yuna Kim is now attending the announcement ceremony for 2015 Special Olympics Summer Games! It's being held in Staples Center in LA and needless to say, Michelle Kwan is there with her
and the winner is... http://www.facebook.com/SpecialOlympics?sk=wall
We’re so excited to announce that the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games will be held in… Los Angeles, California, USA! Woohoo! Congrats LA! Our Special Olympics athletes will be the stars at the 2015 Games! Let the countdown begin!
^^Thanks for the update. Michelle looks radiant (as usual) and LOL! poor Yu-Na! I had to enlarge the picture to spot her! You can only see the top of her head and her eyes but I'm sure she looked lovely as well!
Thanks for the photos. Queen Yuna and the Kween are looking fabulous as usual. Good news about the 2015 Special Olympics being held in the US.

Somehow until now I’ve thought Maria Shriver would be pretty tall, taller than she appears in that picture..
Michelle and Yu-Na both look great, as always. I’m sure Kwanatic would be pleased to find the picture of Yu-Na doing the tribute program for the Kween (I would believe he/she is indeed a Kwan fan, as the nickname alone deserves the benefit of doubt ).
It seems ages since Apollo Ono began his international career. By all standards he’s one of the most decorated athletes in his sport. It would be a treat for the short-track skating fans to see the great veterans like him and Hyun-Soo Ahn (who is now apparently determined to be a naturalized Russian by Sochi) competing against the young guns in 2014.

At the moment ms. Kim, a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, is attending UN Peace Bell Annual Ceremony in New York. She's now in the middle of QnA session with other UN-related ambassadors Michael Douglas, Stevie Wonder, Jane Goodall, Ismael Beah(a human rights activist from Sierra Leone, he was a child soldier as a boy) and Monique Coleman. (omg Yuna's sitting between Dr. Goodall and Stevie Wonder)
Wow, this session is really inspiring. They are all giving out their truly heartfelt and inspirational answers, speeches.

Stevie Wonder just gave Yuna a big applause when she was about to be given a question from the audience!
He also recited a lyrics I'd just like to share this one with FSUers.
Billion Hearts (Stevie Wonder)
On this day, I fathom Just how much could happen
For the world and everything above Lost would be all sorrow
Joy we needn’t borrow If ten billion hearts would join their love
Gentle words would cheer us
Hate would be drowned in the deepest sea
We would be all nations
No more world starvation If ten billion hearts would join their love
Join their love Join their love If we all agree, this could be instantly
No more time for debating
Cause there no more time for waiting
Life has everything we're dreaming of
To yourselves be honest
This and more is promised If ten billion hearts would join their love
War would be non-existent
People oh please listen
We were ten billion hearts will join their love
Yes ten billion hearts would join their love
Join their love
Join their love Life has everything we're dreaming.
To yourselves be honest... if ten billion billion hearts would join their love...

Apparently, it was from a Kirk Douglas blog post.
Not bad for a half-Yu Na fan no?
Short track star Apolo Anton Ohno tweeted his impression on Yuna after Special Olympics event http://twitter.com/#!/ApoloOhno
Met Yun na Kim at the Special Olympics event a few days ago. 21, and ruling the figure skating world. Awesome! Reminds me of M. Kwan~legend.
Apolo is 5'8" tall, he only looks short because the girls (Yuna and Michelle) are wearing high heels!
