    Yu-Na Kim

    1. She said to the group of reporters who gathered at today's media conference in Toronto that she will compete at the 2010 Worlds regardless of her result in Vancouver.

    2. And following the news from SBS, Yu-Na's new exhibition number is "Meditation from Thais".

    3. She will run 300m in Hamilton as a torchbearer at 6:46pm in ET. Live stream available here

    Very interesting. We thought she might change her mind about quitting after Vancouver now that she is healthy and pretty much unbeatable. It does not surprise me so much that she would try for another world title after the olympics, but it remains to be said if she will come back next season. Yu-na had said she would quit after 2010 win or lose, but that was back when she was having a lot of pain from her injuries and was not taking over the world as she is now. Not to mention the pressure she must be getting from the Korean federation to stay. At this point I would not be at all surprised to see her stay on for Sochi, granted that she stays healthy.


    Thais Mediation is great music for her, rather strange for an exhibition, but so much better than the mediocre pop songs she usually skates to.

    Yu-Na has never said she would quit after the Olympics. That was merely a rumor.

    Thanks for the updates. I love watching Yuna skate and am very happy she will have a new exhibition piece as "Please Don't Stop The Music" is about the only thing Yuna ever skated to that I really didn't like so much. But it was more about not liking the song.

    she might be wanting to go to worlds but if she wins the olympics the interviews, television appearances etc. will probably take over training time that I doubt if she wins she will go to Torino... unless she really decides to quit and wants another world title before doing so.

    I think she will go to Worlds if she wins in Vancouver, but I think that will be it for her. There just isn't much reason for her to continue competing.

    So Yuna's running, I bet she's good at that too, I wonder if there's anything that girl is bad at.

    And I agree, unless she doesn't win the Olympics I think she will be done after this upcoming worlds. Even if she doesn't win the Olympics (which I don't see happening) she will probably stop.

    I have heard from multiple sources that she just wants to be normal and able to have a social life, go shopping with friends, have a boyfriend, go to college. She's 19 now and the best skater out there, if she wins, there's nowhere for her to go but down. She really does not seem to love all the fame and attention.

    I don't know, she seems to be enjoying the fame and attention. If not enjoying, then at least just feeling mutual about it. Being Korean, I watch a lot of Korean TV and she's all over the place. On variety shows and things like that, she has a really personality, laughing a lot and joking around even though she wasn't like that before when she first burst onto the scene.

    Orser back in Olympic spotlight as mentor to young skater Hopes Kim Yu-Na will benefit from his Olympic experience


    "Our careers have been so similar," he says of Kim. "The one thing I can share with her is I've been there. I can say to her, `I know what you're feeling,' and she knows that I really do. ....

    That is a very nice article, adoreyuna. I really like Brian Orser's personality. He seems to be a humble person and he handled his huge Olympic disappoinment very well. He did not let it influence the rest of his life.

    I think that Yuna is very fortunate to be coached by Brian Orser in the Olympic season. I remember him mentioning in one of his interviews that in 1988 he lost gold because he spent too much time preparing himself mentally for the Olympics and because of that he didn't really think too much about improving his technical skills. He only praticed to not let them deteriorate. The outcome was of course not good, but from his comments it seems obvious that he learned his lesson and will not let Yuna to make the same mistakes. Aditionally, the fact that he knew how to prepare himself mentally makes me think that he also knows how to prepare mentally Yuna for her Olympic Games. And the above article seems to confirm that.

    "You've got to be competitive. You've got to be fierce. When she carried the torch in Hamilton, I knew it. All I had to do was look at the picture of her, and the look in her eyes told me. She gets it."

    And since this is Yuna News thread I want to post some Yuna links.

    Here are her pictures made for Nike:

    From all her commercials that I saw in the last few years I think I like the above ones the most.
