    I think the peace sign is an East Asian thing (not to be stereotypical or anything >.<). Like when I was in China, whenever I posed for pictures w/my friends there or my family members, they'd always flash the peace sign lols. A lot of Korean celebrities do it too and same in Japan. I hope EVERYONE skates clean In both the long and short. And the last group <3 Yu-na and Mirai are both skating in the same group and one after the other! :wub: This is going to be awesome; the rising star in figure skating and US best ladies hope AND the current Queen? Awesome.

    wow! i didnt expect something like this to happen but am i wrong in thinking that maybe this might be a good thing?
    I think just maybe Yuna needed something like this to give her added motivation, that competitive fire in her to really try and give it her all, just like she did a month ago.

    Go Yuna!!!

    ETA- Yuna and Brian regarding her SP and upcoming FS (source)

    "Tomorrow I will fight because my motivation is still high and moreover this will be the last programme of the season," said Kim.

    Her coach Brian Orser believes she is up to the task.

    "I think we're just looking forward to the biggest comeback ever in the long programme," said Orser.

    "I think she just lost her focus. She's going to have to fight back."

    The Toronto-based skater admitted it had been hard finding the motivation to continue after her Olympic exploits.

    "I was a little scared to compete again," said the 19-year-old. "The Olympic Games were my goal and I wasn't sure if I can fight again for the world championships. Now I want to forget about this and do my best tomorrow."

    The Korean came to Turin as the overwhelming favourite as she has been unbeaten since December 2008, but she paid for errors in her James Bond routine.

    She opened with a perfect triple-triple before running into problems with a triple flip jump, missed a layback spin before messing up her spiral sequence.

    "I didn't expect a short programme like that," said Kim. "The first triple combination was perfect than I felt not sure on my left foot, it was shaking and I don't know why.

    "My layback spin, my spiral and the footwork - I don't know what happened to them. It is the first time that I missed an element, other than jumps, and I am surprised."
    Good luck for tomorrow Yuna!

    I hope to see Yuna and Min-Jung rock it tomorrow , that would be awesome! Korea fighting! I was sooo sad when Min-Jung was crying in the Kiss and Cry after her SP , she's so adorable and to see her sad was just tough to bear. Don't be sad girls, you can bounce back! Go Yuna! Go MJ!

    wow what a come back by our Queen Yuna!
    i was hoping for a 4th place or a podium finish at best given her current mentally exhausted condition, but a silver medal!?
    good for you Yuna, i am so proud of you.. WE are all proud of you!!

    when i was watching her interview with Universal Sports, the interviewer asked her about her future plans, and the first words that came out of her mouth was,
    "I want to go to Korea, I want to go back to my home town and be with my family..." - she really deserves her well earned rest, and I hope she takes the time to really enjoy and bask in the accomplishments that she has achieved with flying colors
    but, as much as i know that Yuna has given much to the sport of figure skating, as a selfish fan I sincerely hope this isnt her final farewell to the sport, competition wise.

    Congratulations Yuna, and thank you for a great season of figure skating!!

    I think not winning here will pretty much convince her to continue on competing. With Worlds in Japan next year, beating Mao and getting her title back on her rival's home turf probably looks pretty appealing.

    Well, let's see. I agree w/you; I doubt Yu-na will take this loss of her title that lightly. BUT at the same time... she's accomplished her childhood gold; the OGM. Who knows what she will do? In any case, whatever she does, I want her to by happy and have no regrets about her choice It would be absolutely wonderful to see her continue on but I mainly just want Yu-na to be happy.

    That being said, I must give my congratulations to Yu-na. Wow, to bounce back from a seventh place position to second overall and first in the free! What a comeback! She is our Queen indeed :wub:

    I commend Yuna for her honesty and taking a high road about her preparation for the worlds. However, that does not mean she needs to tell everything when things are not going right. People on her side would surely appreciate what she is going through. But, there are people who want her to falter and are willing to go a long way to bend it to their advantage. When dealing with the media, restraints can be of use sometimes.

    Hopefully, she is on her way to another brilliant season. She can take some time off and cure the burn-out. She is so close to something truly great.

    So is it known whether Kim will continue or retire?

    No one knows. I am dreaming of what numbers Wilson will come up for her next year. And I am hoping she will continue to skate.

    Have a great vacation Yuna. You earned it.

    I hope YuNa takes the time to relax and not think about skating for at least 2-3 weeks. She deserves that after all the work she put into
    making this season a stellar one for the sport of figuring skating and for her fans.
