Keepin' it real
Kim Yu-na to decide on future before summer
The Korean Herald - Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yu-na said Saturday she will decide on her future plans “before the summer.”
Summer begins in four days! Better hurry up and decide, Yu-Na.
Simply the best.
Before summer? Isn't it supposed to be "Before summer ends"? This is already summer lol. Declaring her future plan in summer has been her consistent comment in every interview/press conference. So, no news here.
I reread the report and verified that she didn't say which summer.
How many 22 year old have achieved both a degree and an Olympic gold medal?
It must be tempting for her, seeing as how the technical level of the sport has declined. She can probably skate worse than she did in Vancouver and still win in Sochi.
Six Point Zero
Did you know Russia has the highest number of billionaires on earth? Even if Yuna surpasses her Vancouver performance, who knows how much the ISU will be paid to select the next Olympic champion...

ETA: I should warn others not to expect much from this "news"...other translations include the word "may" in her statement that she "may announce her decision before summer."
