    Summer begins in four days! Better hurry up and decide, Yu-Na.

    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.

    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...

    As much as I would love to see it happen, if I were in Yuna's place I wouldn't go for Sochi. At most I'd go for another World title and then officially retire. A World title she can easily take with enough training and preparation, but the Olympics is a wholly different beast.

    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."
