PS: curses on the JSF!!!!!! Yukari gave you a decade of her heart, soul, blood, tears, and body, and yet this is how you repay her. In fact, that was the first thing that came to my mind when Mao finished 2nd at the 2010 Olympics. May karma bite you in the posterior, JSF.
These are the medals that Yukari Nakano brought home to Japan, honor her:
*2 gold JGP medals, 2 silver JGP medals, and 1 bronze JGP medal.
*gold medalist at 2000 Jr. Japan Nationals & silver medalist at 2001 Jr. Japan Nationals.
*bronze medalist at 2001 JGP Final.
*silver medalist at 2002 Jr. Worlds.
*silver & bronze medalist at 4CC's respectively.
*1 gold Sr. GP medal, 4 silver Sr. GP medals, and 4 bronze Sr. GP medals.
*1 bronze Sr. GP Final Medalist.
*3-time Japan Nationals bronze medalist!
Yet despite all this glory she brings home to her country, she gets left off the Olympic Team in 2006 & 2010.
THANK YOU, YUKARI-CHAN, FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES!!!!!!!
