Interesting article! It doesn't make any predictions but states the challenge in a way that serves to heighten tension, at least in me. And after the roller coaster of the men's long program, I now expect just anything, anything at all.
Ido Midori analyzed Yu-Na and three other Japanese skaters.
She said Yu-Na has totally different image from the last season's 007, and Yu-Na is unbelievely in good condition despite her absense for an year.
As the second screenshot indicates, she gave two circles to all the elements of Yu-Na's skating.
Also she pointed out the underrotation of someone's axel jump.
I'm afraid she will get a lot of complaints...
Interesting article from Toronto Star. It offers some light on how nationalism has influence over some segment of fandom, on what happened to Yu-Na before and after 2010 Worlds, and David Wilson’s brief words on her new LP and her motivation to continue skating.
Skate rivalry boils over, on and off ice

According to a Koeran reporter's twitter, Yu-Na's Giselle costume was designed by her coach, Peter Oppegard.

Latest Practice Report tweet by Universal Sports:

Kim rock solid on practice- did all her jumps in run-through
According to the interview, Peter Oppegard designed Yu-Na's costume and Karen Kwan gave him a lot of idaes. It was made by Jan Longmire who made a lot of Sasha Cohen's costumes.
Another report says Peter Oppegard considered traditional light blue for her Giselle at first, but later followed David Wilson’s opinion that darker palette would better suit the tragic theme of the choreography.
Could anybody post a video of medal ceremony?
Looks like she has grown a bit lately. I thought she was only slightly taller than Miki, but in the podium pictures Yuna seems considerably taller by more than an inch. And only an inch or so shorter than Carolina who is listed 5'7" (169cm).
