    News Happy, healthy Kim hopes for big season

    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    Training at Toronto's Cricket Skating & Curling Club -- some 6,500 miles from her hometown in Gunpo, South Korea -- agrees with Yu-Na Kim.

    YEA!!! Let's hope Yunie kicks butt this season

    She is one of few skaters who can openly praise rivals without any ulterior motive. I like that.

    Good to hear she's healthier. But I'll never be relieved until she's 100% healed.

    She is always 100% healed up until a month before worlds.

    Which is quite unfortunate for her because otherwise, her records say, that she could have won both worlds.
    Nobody likes to be injured in their most important moment.
    Really, it is not so pretty to be sarcastic about others' misfortune like injuries. Just my two pence.


    I sincerely hope she can fully show what she has this year.
    Stay happy and healthy, Yuna!

    And speculations like that inspire sarcastic remarks like this one:

    It's probably true that Kim was that injured and unfortunately both times before Worlds - but I don't think it makes any sense to speculate what could have been just because she is the world record holder (Takahashi got to know how much that's worth - even without an injury) and "her records say, that she could have won both worlds".

    These speculations often seem - even if they are not intended that way - like a cheap stab at e.g. Mao Asada. "She is only World Champion because she is lucky that Kim wasn't healthy" - nobody can know that! I think we should refrain from these kind of speculations.

    And nobody said that!
    I didn't say Yuna 'would' have won. I said she 'could' have won.
    Indeed I didn't intend that way.
    And I agree with you. 'If' doesn't really mean anything in competition.
    Actually, I don't like 'A won because B got injured' or 'C won because D made mistake' kind of assumptions.
    That's also one of the reason why I hope Yuna-and all other skaters for that matter- stays healthy and injury-free.

    What I wanted to say to MasterB is that you don't need to be sarcastic about being injured and forced to leave the rink for more than 5 weeks right before the most important event of the season.

    If this girl has one season when she is completely healthy all the way through, she will be unbeatable. Not only does she have talent, but also is judges pet.
