Technical excellence with all elements from jumps to step sequences + artistry + speed, she is probably fastest skater right now + good programs + nice spirals.OK. So please tell me? What else Yuna has that noone else has???????
That's what she has. She didn't show it all right now, but we all know that.
Just got out of class and went to ISU to see results. Mirai in first and Yu Na Kim in SEVENTH? WOW. That's a shocker. I wonder if I read the results right...... did Yu Na fall or something?
But if you're going to say something like "but other people do a 3-3" fine. But what people praise her for isn't that she just does a 3-3 it's how she does it. She like goes like 20 feet and both jumps have great height. Other combos people tend to underrotate the second jump or make it much smaller. That's a money combo.
Mao's 3A looked absolutely OK to me, by the way. Don't know, have to take a look at it later
I think he was talking about being at the podium. She looks strong, that girl. It's not like others are inferior to her, but she looked stronger than others. And Yuna is vulnerable right now, Mao too considering that her consistency is always a question. But those two also can surprise us every time...Yes, she could. However, the poster I quoted seemed to think somehow Nagasu is the only one who is not vulnerable, which is just crazy talk, hence I had to point out no one is invincible.
Why Mao's score is so low? She had better scores at Olympics sp.

I'm not a fan of Yu Na and think she's overrated, but you do have to feel bad for someone when everyone's expecting you to do well and you make mistakes like that. I haven't heard of anyone making mistakes like those on the layback and spiral. Gotta feel bad for her.
But then again, it's Speedy. Not going to happen.
