sad and inspiring.. ..:(Sua is a 10 year old girl with brain tumor. she was a figure skater and had a dream of being a wonderful figure skater like Yuna. So, her supporters tried to make contact with All That Sports, Yuna’s agency, hoping Sua could meet Yuna. But, Yuna couldn’t come to meet her becuase of Pyeongchang’s bid schedules. The event for Sua seemed to end in failure. But, one day, one package was sent to Sua at the hospital. They were a white pair of skating boots with Yuna’s autograph and her cheering message for Sua. Sua loved them so much and tried to read Yuna’s messages even if she was too sick to express her feelings. she was so happy that she could’t take her eyes off the white skate boots.
Yuna left Seoul to LA just now. In her interview with Korean news media, she said although she trained during her stay in Korea it wasn't enough for her to decide she is physically in an adequate shape for the upcoming worlds. She said she is not sure for now whether she will be in for worlds, and she will find out in LA whether she will be able to get herself back in shape for the competition when she goes through more intense training sessions.

I think she will make a big decision and announce it soon regarding her future career as a competition skater. I mean, she can't put off her Sochi Olympic decision too long. It would be very unwise for her to maintain her "not-sure-in-or-out" status up to the one season before the Olympics and then decides not to go for the Games because the Korean public (and some of her fans also) will not take it well at all. I think this season is perhaps the last season in which she could show herself undetermined about the Olympics and be ok with the public and the media.

I agree with cosmos in that, if she does continue and compete in 2012-13 season, I can’t imagine her not eyeing Sochi at that point.

She would have a month or two to make that decision in LA. I think that’s long enough time.
If she decides to skip the whole season, so be it. Sure, her show or public interest in her might lose some of its steam. But I think it should not be important AT ALL in deciding whether she’s ready to compete or where her heart is. I’m saying this as one of the fans that would love to see her continue competitive skating as long as she can.
