Personally, I want Yuna to keep competing because it WOULD be cool to have another Kat. But I don't think Yuna will take my wishes into consideration.

Apart from Gao (I think she can get on the World team, I just don't know if she will get the PCS to medal there), I think my predictions are totally plausible. I don't think anyone doubts that Kostner, Verner, and Abbott are talented enough to win World medals, I mean Kostner has already done it two (three?) times and Verner was 4th twice, and Abbott, well he just has to stop peaking at the GPF and Nationals....
Golly, the season has barely started, and YuNa's thread is almost 100 pages long. This season is going to be fun!
I don't know if someone posted this, but it sounds like Yuna is progressing.
http://auntjoycesicecreamstand.blogs...el/Yu-Na%20KimYu-Na Kim selected Peter Oppegard as her coach yesterday. This has caused internet hysteria that she will not compete again. Orser served as Yu-Na's main coach, but he was not her jump coach in Toronto. Oppegard could very well serve the same role, with jump help coming from other places if needed. Arutunian is in close proximity and could likely work with Yu-Na on her jumps. Oppegard is a very successful pairs coach, which means that he knows all about positioning and creating a picture on the ice. As a choreographer, he can really aid Yu-Na's ability to emote, expand her range of movement and polish her skating. When I saw the photo of him correcting her foot position, I was giddy with excitement. The Olympic Champion displays a strong affinity for the feminine boys. View a photo album of them working together. Oppegard previously taught Kim her double axel. They have not discussed her competition plans, but she remains steadfast that she will compete at Worlds. Yu-Na is in decent shape and has been running through her new programs at the East West Ice Palace.
i know yuna's LP is a combination of other Korean folk songs combined with arirang. i can see david wilson's choreography mixing it up with other traditional Korean dances..
combined with the elements of skating it will be stunning!!!!

Yuna nominated for the Sportswoman of the Year Award by Women Sports Foundation.
The award banquet is tonight in New York, but it remains to be seen whether Yuna will attend.
^ Yu-na's attending! And she's attending with Michelle too :D
