Kim promises no regrets as Koreans gear up for Sochi
And, she and Michelle will skate in the closing ceremony to "Hero".

Hopefully by then Korea will have another medal contender to cheer for. I really hope to see So-Youn Park or Hae-Jin Kim blossom into wonderful skaters and continue Yu-Na's legacy.

As far as her competing, I don't think that will happen. She said she plans to make Sochi her last competition and I believe her. Not only that but by that time she will have done so much for her federation, I don't understand how they could possibly bring themselves to ask/force/pressure her to compete yet again. At some point enough is enough...
By "this time around," I meant next year's Olympics -- 2014. I agree; I think she'll really be done after Sochi, and there isn't much more that the federation can reasonably ask of her.
