    It's very interesting to see the most-loved person in Korea and most-hated person in Korea standing next to each other

    Am new here...did not have a TV last year so could you believe I just watched her Short Program and Free Skate from the 2010 Olympics just yesterday on You Tube? I can't believe I didn't watch it until then. What an astounding and perfect performance! Plus also finding out she's no longer coached by Orser...first wonderful appreciation at her skates and then feeling letdown. Oh well. That's life. :(

    It's been reported that Yuna and Michelle Kwan have been invited to join a lunch with Korean President Lee, US Vice President Joe Biden, and Sec. of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department this week. President Lee is having a summit with President Obama to announce the groundbreaking signing of the FTA and make a speech at the joint session of the Congress.

    As people know, Hillary Clinton has publicly expressed her admiration for Yuna, in response to which Yuna sent a personal thank-you letter to Clinton. Now, they will be meeting face-to-face!

    Can't wait for photos!!

    How wonderful to hear! I remember that lovely letter. I'm thrilled that she and Michelle are participating in that meeting. Since they're already friends, I'm sure Michelle will help YuNa stay calm and will make the encounter even more enjoyable. I wonder if Jill Biden, an interesting and accomplished woman in her own right, will also be there. The first person who sees any report, photos, or video of that meeting, let the rest of us know!

    We have often spoken in this forum of the good things that Michelle seems poised to do in the world, and the good that YuNa will do, but this post makes me realize that these young ladies could also team up and be even more formidable.

    From Fox news:

    Ohno Becomes Most Reviled Athlete in South Korea


    Published February 20, 2010
    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Apolo Anton Ohno may be feted at home for his Olympic feats, but he's better known in South Korea as the "king of fouls."

    The American short-track speedskater, who goes up against the South Koreans again when he races for a historic seventh Winter Olympics medal on Saturday, may well be the athlete South Koreans hate the most.

    I don't know whether this is true, or just part of the Olympic story building in the US in the last cycle, but it was certainly out there at the time.

    Short track speed skating is an exciting sport and anything can and do happen during competitions. South Korea is one of the strongest teams in the World but going back for years Ohno was thought to have received favorable treatments with impeding etc. It continued during the last Olympics when Ohno was the beneficiary of several on ice incidents (clashes) until his luck ran out.

    What a terrific picture! Both these ladies look happy and proud to be standing next to each other.

    I kept looking through the crowd in the background for Michelle...wonder whether there are any photos of her at the luncheon.
