    Happy Birthday, Yuna.

    An amazing, amazing young lady, on and off the ice.

    Yuna's Documentary - this is a little more than the ATS Behind The Scene I linked in the ATS thread.

    Personally I do hope that Yuna finds the motivation to seriously continue as a competitive skater. After the 2010 Olympics her competitive skating really suffered I think, her lack of motivation showed in the weaker technical and presentation aspects of her performances IMO. The fact that she still managed to win two WC silver medals just skating at 3/4 power is amazing.

    I think Yuna could take the next 9 to 12 months off and still return to competitive skating after that if she wanted to. If she competed in the GP series in 2012 and 2013 with renewed full commitment, I have little doubt she would be a top contender (if not the prohibitive favorite) heading into the 2014 Olympics.

    yup..

    yuna documentary from sbs

    - classy advice from irina and stephane about yuna's future
    - some patrick-yuna behind the scene
    - yuna talking about the Worlds 2011 when she cried.. and she thought it could be her last podium..
    - she was surprised about the reaction from people(fans?), as they did not even congratulate her from winning silver medal at this year's worlds..:sheesh:
    - pyeongchang winning the 2018 bid was turning point in her
    - retirement is always in her mind but she said she's not planning, that it will happen

    This is a very small act that anyone would do in that situation but I think she is adorable here, especially when she briefly hesitated before the eye contanct with Stevie Wonder's secretary.

    Stevie Wonder must have been happy with that. Look at his reaction when Yuna's name was called.

    However, as for the translation, I don't like it at all. Yuna did not say that sports can become very competitive at times or that the olympics is war where players come together. I don't think Yuna especially mentioned 'hope', either.

    What she said is;

    As we can see that they fobade war during the olympic games a long time ago, sports means that all the people in the world come together as one, compete in peace, doing competitions in good faith(smile)... people can enjoy sports with passion. Sports is something like that. I think all the players or athletes, including me, from every discipline, should show these meanings to the fans, to all the people who like sports in the world.

    How interesting that YuNa brought up the fact that war was suspended during the Olympics in ancient times. It's one of the hopes I always have for sport, that it will bring people together at least for fleeting moments. (I understand that sport is not always noble, but this is one of the aspects of it that can really make a difference in the world.) I remember someone saying sadly once that in ancient Greece, wars were suspended for the Olympics, but in modern times, the Olympics were suspended for war. (Alas, this happened in 1914, 1918, 1940, and 1944.) It is true that although a sports competition can be war, it also allows people from different countries to meet and to respect one another's abilities. That's true for the athletes and also sometimes for the audiences. For example, I'm sure the Soviets were seen in a new light by many Americans when Olga Korbut and later Katia Gordeyeva showed up on the scene--and historians still write of the eager reception Jesse Owens received from German spectators at the Munich Olympics. Small seeds, but sometimes they grow and flourish in unexpected ways later on.
