NO ANOTHER YUNA KIM in SIGHT
I don't see anybody has potential to become the NEXT Yuna Kim.
Not only in Korea but the whole world.
Enjoy Yuna Kim while you can...
Another Yuna Kim won't come easy.
LOL! I agree with you. She has a way of expressing herself on the ice that sets herself apart from the other ladies. It's visible even at 12 in the Carmen number.

I think we will hear her name.
And I agree she won't be Yu Na, there is only one Yu Na Kim!
she's just a baby! tho i have no doubt yuna's money and inspiration will bring along some great little skaters, most 12 year old phenoms don't make it to age 16. She's cute, what can ya say? Watch Michelle at 12 or 13 on youtube. She was so good but no one knew she'd be around that long. well, maybe Frank did...

True. 3-4 yrs ago, I thought Kimmie, Mirai, and Caroline would be rounding up top 5 in Vancouver along with Yuna and Mao. Mirai came close, but Kimmie and Caroline didn't even make the team. I can hardly get excited about a 14yr old skater let alone 12.
I completely agree. Three years ago, I thought that the top five in Vancouver would be Yuna, Mao, Caroline, Miki, and Carolina or Kimmie. A lot of young skaters have lots of potential, but the challenge is maintaining their jumps and technique past puberty.
