    Aw I like that she's doing "Send in the Clowns".

    This other music is new to me. Don't know what to make of it. The theme I mean. It sounds like good skating music though.

    Heaven's no. I am sorry, I wasn't clear. I was actually referring to everybody else, and I was thinking about the GPF - where YuNa isn't even competing.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    well, I think that it's official; I am an idiot for thinking that she could not get any better. That was spellbinding. Also, for this to be DW's choreography, it looked NOTHING like what he has done in the past with her. Majestic.

    Praying for Asada...

    Oh, wow. a million times

    Nice connecting moves in between, and I'm particularly impressed with step sequence there. Like arakwafan said above, the whole program is nothing like DW has ever done. Don't care about the scoring potential of this program. I just hope she can bring the best of her efforts-jumps, spins, steps, emoting, at Sochi. This program will be epic.

    Nothing like what he's done for her recently, but I see glimpses of the Lark Ascending which he choreographed for her seven years ago. I like it.

    She seems to be a in a great shape. If she lands her jumps, she should win the Olympics. She will need to be clean though because I don't expect Lipnitskaia to make any mistakes.

She will have plenty of time to get ready for Sochi since she would have over 3 weeks in between 4CC and the Olympics. I think she will need more then 1 or 2 competitions unlike last year.
    She is not going to take part in Four Continents Championships.

    It's a beautiful long program, if squeaky clean it'll absolutely bring the house down. Her expression has matured so much since Vancouver, I found her beautiful but wooden and boring before. She and Mao Asada are both at the apex of their careers - what an exciting time for us fans to watch the last showdown when they both look like this.

    I heard that nothing has been decided on which will be her next competition yet.

    Oh so maybe she is going to change her mind. My source was the 4CC team nominated by the South Korean Federation which did not include Kim Yu-Na.

    Those team selections are not set in stone, I think. However, I still doubt she'll skate at 4CC. Maybe Korean Nationals?

    I was skeptical when I heard the music choices for SP "Send in the Clowns" and FS "Adios Nonino" but after watching the run throughs--where she did omit some segments--they could work quite well for her. She looks in very good shape indeed and with clean or nearly clean performances, definitely can be anywhere on the Olympic podium and that includes the top spot. There's just that confident air in her skating that says "champion" and only a few other ladies right now skate with this same attitude.

    As long as she doesn't wear a clown costume for her SP.

    Wow. I am blown away by her LP. She took care of all my gripes about her skating! This is the best I've ever seen her and this is just a run through.

    I feel the same.

    Solid run-throughs.

    "Send in the Clowns" is not a piece of music that I like, but Yu-Na could skate to any horrendous tune, I'd still be mesmerized by her amazing technique.

    Will have to watch the actual performance to see if I like the Piazzolla choreo.

    Ahhhh. Yuna's new LP looks very good! Tango music for singles skaters is not my favorite, but still it looks like an excellent program, and that's without even seeing the full choreography. Her jumps look wonderful, as always.

    I think it depends on the level of the skaters. The skaters on the level of Kim will be occupied with their own practices while Kim skates.
