    Yuna is too good to just fade away. When the time comes, practically everyone will demand Yuna to go for another gold (she will only be 23), and I think she herself will also want to go for another Olympic gold - and immortality.

    Re: Yu-Na news

    I don't think it would be a good idea to put together 2 new programs, and show them to real judges for the first time at Worlds. She will be declared the winner of Korean Nationals from 8,000 miles away, so she should at least do one GP event or Four Continents to try her programs out.

    Re: Yu-Na news

    In my opinion YuNa will probably take the entire season off. I will be surprised if she makes it to Worlds.
    The opportunities for YuNa to enjoy herself and pick and choose what she wants to do are probably much more appealing to her
    than training and competing this year. She should enjoy the fruits of her labor, she truly deserves it.

Now that the pressure of pursuing OGM is off her, I hope she will show us that kind of exuberance again.
    Saaaame! When YuNa performed her Tango, it looked like she was just having fun, that she relished each opportunity to show that program. I saw a competitive fire with her Danse Macabre, but I think she had the most fun with El Tango.

    Sarah Hughes had something else in line to look forward to when she retired: school at a prestigious university. YuNa doesn't have any particular short- or long-term goals lined up, but she may just want to live a regular life and explore other things. Yes, we'll have to see if YuNa still has a fire for skating, but it is easy for me to forgive both Sarah's exit and YuNa's potential one...

    I was thinking more along the lines of YuNa possibly wanting to skate in a competition for her fans in Korea, so the Korean Nationals would be a decent option for it.

    This would have been the best option, IMO.

    Funny thing is that Hughes never officially retired. Neither did Kwan. Looks like the "cool thing to do" now, at least for US skaters, is just to "keep that door open" until they're 80.

    "Are you going to try out for the 2060 Games?" [from wheelchair, thrusting cane in the air] "Maybe, just keeping my options open. I only have a couple more years to live anyway, why not? Gotta take it one day at a time...well, make that one hour at a time"

    kinda of expected it. glad for her, she needs to focus on herself and what she needs to do to keep fresh and skating in perspective.
    now it also opens up the door for other skaters to make more of a name for themselves in the gp series.

    I will LOL if Yuna shows up at the Korean Nationals. They will likely declare her as the winner even without showing up.

    I think the only thing Cinquanta can do is decree that she cannot be in any shows or exhibitions during the Grand Prix season. (?)

    As a "seeded skater," does she have to submit some kind of official lame excuse about why she is skipping the Grand Prix, or can she just tell Speedy to stick the Grand Prix in his ear?

    Re: Yu-Na news

    That's a good point. She may not be able to claim exhaustion, then skate in shows during the Grand Prix.

    If I were YuNa I would want to do the same, sit out till my motivation comes back, not knowing when it'll be but even in that status having to think about the 2 spots for the country.

    But the ISU who did things tough and square for Plush can't show too much of favoritism.
    What's more, since Communication 1023 is purposely reposted on its GP webpage this year, ISU can't neglect its own warning for the seeded skaters to give absolute priority to ISU events.

    So I think the ISU will say something about this and consequently YuNa's shows that may offend 1023 may have to be re-scheduled, perhaps?

    I don't want to imagine that YuNa will think she is exceptional to the rules. She'll pay full respect to ISU, at least I hope so.
