The Sports Illustrated cover curse striking again?

I don't think Miki would any longer after being appointed with Toyota exclusively right after 2006 Olympics, so is Taka. Neither Miki nor Taka appears in Toyota's CM. I think it good for them to be able to focus on skating.

I hope that with this will be clear that the ISU dont will try get down to Yuna, they would be really idiots for to do that to the best machine of money.
Kim has donated nearly US$3M for the last two years.
Keeper of the Kweens OGM.
And she is still very young. What a great role model for younger skaters, very gracious

Yuna is very beautiful (as is Mao) which doesn't hurt her endorsement career, I'm sure.
You can say that again!

You are welcome. I am interested in politics and economics and get the info from news and blogs in Japanese.

Thank goodness that she earned her Olympic spot in a convincing manner afer the big slump so that there would be no organizational dilemmas.

Yu-Na also has a bit of extra incentive to skate her best in Vancouver; she will take in an extra $1 million USD if she takes home the gold medal while also topping her own world record of a combined 207.71 points (from LA 2009 Worlds) in the process.
....info taken from article "World record in Vancouver would hand Kim Yu-Na a $1m bonus:
Article here: http://www.morethanthegames.co.uk/fi...-na-a-1m-bonus
If Kim wins gold, she will earn at least 5 times what she earned last year, as her endorsements will expand internationally.

She will make excellent use of the money also.
