    Yuna is probably not that much shorter than Apolo even in flats though, she seems to have grown in the past few years, I wouldn't be surprised if she's 5'6"-5'7" now even though she still gets listed as 5'4.5" which she looks much taller than.

    Here's a recent documentary aired in Korea on Yuna Kim that has been translated into English by her fans @ allthatyuna.com blog that has just been released today.

    It indicate her thought process and everything that leads to the WC 2011 and subsequent events that may affect her future decision making.

    Thanks for the video link! (Phil Hersh even tweeted it )

    September 16 Korean news article in English: Kim Yu-na Uncertain for [2012] Skating Worlds
    Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yu-na may skip the upcoming World Championships in March in Nice, France, she said on Thursday [9/15].

    "In order to compete, you have to have a clear goal and be mentally prepared for it," said the 21-year-old. "But I don't know exactly what I want to do at this point."
    ...
    She left Korea for LA at the end of last month and is currently training at the East West Ice Palace without a coach as her contract with Peter Oppegard has already expired.

    "I am in good form, practicing two to three hours a day," she said. "I will decide whether to join any competitions when I'm mentally and physically ready."

    Yuna Kim promoting donation for crises in East Africa.

    Official trailer for help from UNICEF

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=131TnrlzufY

    It was filmed during UN Peace Day events. She says even UNICEF is doing what they can do for now but a lot needs to be done, and that your donation can save the Horn of Africa.

    Yuna Kim, Winter Youth Olympic Games Ambassador!

    Official introduction to Yuna Kim from Youth Olympic Games media has been released.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjgbYdUXYr0

    As the Austrian city of Innsbruck celebrates 100 days to go until the first ever Winter Youth Olympic Games in January 2012, the International Olympic Committee is pleased to announce that figure skater and Olympic champion Yuna Kim from the Republic of Korea is the latest Winter Youth Olympic Games Ambassador.

    Wow, this is the first ever winter YOG and then makes her the first ambassador of YOG ever!

    She says she's very honored and proud to be able to inspire young athletes to perform their best

    This trailer is very movie-like and so intense

    Yuna Kim revealed as Winter Youth Olympic Games Ambassador for Innsbruck 2012
    http://www.olympic.org/media?articleid=142822

    IOC President Jacques Rogge said: “To have such a dedicated, gifted and internationally renowned athlete to mentor the athletes going to Innsbruck 2012 is fantastic news. Yuna is an outstanding Olympic champion, setting a new world record in winning her gold medal in Vancouver last year. She was excellent in her role as PyeongChang 2018 Athlete Ambassador, and I am sure that as a Youth Olympic Games Ambassador she will inspire young people to compete in winter sports.”
    A little flashback - Perhaps Mr. Rogge was already expecting Yuna to become an ambassador for IOC events? http://i.imgur.com/4PASp.jpg

    An great feature article from IFS Magazine (I am a proud subscriber )

    Yu-Na Kim: From the Heart
    By SUSAN D. RUSSELL

    http://www.ifsmagazine.com/articles/...from-the-heart

    “I want to perform a more diverse range of characters and show great performances for everyone,” she explained. “Also, although it might be difficult, I want to be able to skate with less pressure about results and medals.”

    Kim’s accomplishments on and off the ice have earned her worldwide respect, but fame and fortune have not changed her. She remains the same down-to-earth person she always was. “Where I am now was a dream that was always inside my heart, but I did not imagine that it could really come true,” she said.

    “Over the years, I have been both surprised and proud as I saw myself getting closer to achieving my dreams. I often now think to myself, ‘Yes, I knew I could do it.’

    “However, I am only human and there are times when I go through a rough phase which makes me doubt my successes. But I push myself to overcome those challenges. I tell myself that I am a lucky person.

    "I have accomplished everything that any athlete in the world could ever dream of.”

    “I want to perform a more diverse range of characters and show great performances for everyone,” she explained. “Also, although it might be difficult, I want to be able to skate with less pressure about results and medals.”

    I like this quote.

    Of all her great programs, IMO her signature piece was Lark Ascending. She never did it clean or won Worlds with it, but it’s still my favorite, even more so than her clean Miss Saigon, Danse Macabre or Gershwin. It would be great to see more programs from her, either in show skating or in competition. Her winning more is not important to this fan as she’s done more than enough for her fans already.

    Thumbs up Yuna Kim to shine in Washington with Hillary Clinton!

    http://yunaforum.com/forum/index.php...ndpost&p=96216
    YuNa goes to Washington!

    Korean President Lee visits US and is invited to a lunch in Department of State, where US vice President will attend with Hillary Clinton. YuNa has been invited to this lunch with Michelle Kwan. The time is 1 pm on 13th (US eastern time).
    WoW!!!
    Yuna said that she once received a congratulation letter from Mrs. Clinton right after her Olympic victory - then Yuna wrote her back her handwriting letter, too- and this time she will have the honor of meeting and telling her "thank you" in person.

    I have no idea even if there is as thing as "limit" to this lady!


    and of course, Michelle WILL BE THERE!!
