Yuna Kim to skate in October Los Angeles Gala
They are saying it will be held at the Staples Center! I am about to pass out from the excitement!!
Yay! How great if she performs in the States. And if Kwan joins her! There will be crowds around the block.
I don't know the rules about eligibility and how they apply to shows, but surely YuNa's team is savvy and will keep her from agreeing anything to jeopardize her World and Olympic participation. After all, doesn't Stars on Ice have skaters who are still involved in eligible competitions, such as Mirai?
Dare we hope that this will be televised?
Beautiful post, Olympia! I see nothing wrong with honorary citizenship for outstanding people (the example of Raoul Wallenberg, etc.). Congrats to Dr. Sammy Lee, as well. Very impressive accomplishments.
Great news for people in the LA area re: the ice show!
Now it's official: the show will be hosted by All That Sport, Yuna's firm. Jeremy just responded to his fans inquiry about his participation that he has scheduling conflict and so can't do this time. Hope Michelle takes part!
AFAIK the season starts each year on July 1st, ISU wise.
Junior GPs starts August.
Nebelhorn is in September.
So it may never be unnatural for Speedy to think October is deep into the season by far.

In the past, the official rules about shows and exhibitions were applied only to the Grand Prix "season." If a senior skater declined to participate in the Grand Prix, that skater could not do a show from the period of time of the first GP event until after the GP final.Originally Posted by sorcerer
Michelle Kwan did the Campbell's cheesefest in early October, then the Marshall's cheesefest in mid-December, neatly bracketing the Grand Prix season, without penalty even in years that she skipped the Grand Prix. I think Yu-na Kim will be OK whatever she decides to do (bulletproof )
