I thought she looked less skinny and her proportion started to be a woman in this past 2 years. Look at her body during 2006-2008, I
still remember the satorare guy who was banded from this board used to call her popeye's sweetheart.
She turned into refine beautiful lady in this season.
1. Ummmm. oh, I know. Kim!
2. Cohen (She WILL show up. She WILL put it together. I DO believe in fairies, I DO I DO.)
3. Flatt ... but really there are plenty of ladies who could also medal .. Fumie, Julia, even Alexe. this is a tough one.
3. Bradley. (There has be SOME moment when he holds it together. Why not this time? And he DOES have a quad...)
I also heard that she's very cautious not to gain weight during the season, which affects the quality of her jumping. But she loves bread and ice-cream, and appeared as an model of bakery shop here, in Koea.
Actually some Yuna fans worried about her height instead...Her father is over 6 feet and very very slim while her mother is short. In one interview his father mentioned Yuna was very good at controlling her eating and her mind even when she was a kid.
My niece last year decided to go on a diet, and restricted herself to just over 1,000 calories a day. The result? At 5'4", she ended up at 76 lbs! It was a shock when she came home from college for the summer. After seeing a registered dietitian for about five months now, she's about 100 lbs, still way under her ideal weight.
The fact that we don't see her becoming super skinny in a short period of time means that she's eating enough to get through her training and practice and we should not worry about anything.
It is true that she said she's watching her weight especially during the competition season. I could notice her face becoming rounder during off-seasons especially when she's staying in Korea , meaning that she eats more during off-season. Off-seasons must be when she does most of the intense training and practice, so I'm not worried.
By the way, I notice that she's still slim but her thighs are bulkier this season. Must have done some squats.

Well, after reading the article, I am quite sure that she will retire after Vancouver - because, honestly, who wants to continue with such a miserable diet after having won the biggest prices this sport has to offer?
And there is no way, by the way, that this is healthy. Of course doctors are supervising it, but that doesn't mean it's healthy, doctors supervise lots of stupid things.
I never thought that athletes have such extreme diets. Now it explains a lot - how Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson looked like normal girls in a matter of months after the Olympics. Or even how Sasha Cohen suddenly developed curves.
This is also the best way to keep puberty from happening. I don't know how long Kim has been on this diet, but if her former Korean coach is talking about it, I guess not just since last year. It explains a lot.
