    and did you guys hear that SI picked Yuna as 10 Who Made '10 Memorable?

    it is news, right?

    here's the picture taken on June.

    and this is a part of the article. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vau...0106/index.htm

    What does it feel like to look into the eyes of greatness? A world-class photographer asked himself that question,
    so he chased down athletes who have given us some of the most memorable moments of 2010.
    The result : A perfect...

    10 for '10

    Kevin Durant is 6’9”, born and bred inside the Washington, D.C., beltway and, despite being one of
    the NBA’s most incandescent young stars, so unassuming that he might stroll unrecognized through most malls in America.

    Kim Yu-na is 5’4”, a native South Korean and a celebrity so revered in her homeland that in 2006 she moved to Toronto,
    where rock-star levels of adulation wouldn’t interfere with her training. And that was four years before she won
    an Olympic figure skating gold medal at the Vancouver Games last February.

    The towering Oklahoma City Thunder forward –Durant was the NBA’s scoring leader last season and in September led
    Team USA to its first basketball world championship in 16 years –and the diminutive Winter Olympics champion would
    seem to have little in common, aside perhaps from their outsized leaping abilities and the fact that both gained
    international stardom in 2010. But longtime SI photographer Walter Iooss Jr. recognized something else when he turned his lens on them. “There’s a certain aura about all great athletes,” Iooss says. “I don’t know if it’s because you know they’re great or they know they’re great. But there’s something that you sense as soon as they walk in the room.”

    the excitement for yuna would be this ↓~

    I sensed that she's taking this Worlds event particularly seriously because it is a real challenge for her, and I think she's enjoying that

    Indeed, year 2010 has been an unbelievable year for the Queen. Olympic Champion, Time 100 Most Influential People in the World, Sportswoman of the Year, UNICEF Ambassador, etc. etc.

    And I believe Yuna will be ready to give another unforgettable performance when March comes! Can't wait till the Worlds!

    I think she'll be able to win with even a forgettable performance. I wish that wasn't so, Yunah is not my favourite. But who can beat her? Mao (who is my favourite) is reinventing herself and appears to be out for the season as a serious competitor. Alissa (another favourite of mine) is unlikely to beat even a forgettable Kim. Miki is not in Yunah's class. Who's left to challenge her?

    A healthy, Olympic-shape Mirai would give her a run for her money.

    I've really taken a liking to Yu-Na these past 2 years, I wish her well.

    I wouldn't disregard Alissa (if she's there) as when she's on the judges love her. Rightly so too (in my opinion) I might add.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    The difference between Yu-Na and the others is that they all had feedback on their programs. They know what levels they'll get on their spins and footwork and how to make them better. The GPS is the time for skaters to get the kinks out of their programs.

    I know Yu-Na was in her own class for two years but even for a skater of her caliber, I think she should get some type of feedback on her programs in a competitive format before competing at Worlds. Plus, with the rule changes this season, I definitely think she should at least go to 4CC.

    I wouldn't count out Miki, Alissa or any of the other skaters who have performed well this season. The ice is always slippery.

    I wouldn't count out Alissa or Miki. They can both put up big numbers when they skate well.

    Please do not assume that Alissa will even be competing at Worlds. She may of course, but we don't know that at this point.

    Hopefully one day the truth about the Brian/Yu-Na thing will surface - and a very different picture will be painted than the one thrown around in the media.

    You probably can't say the same about her mom.
