    Kim promises no regrets as Koreans gear up for Sochi

    Plus, she'll be schmoozing with heads of state, drumming up support for UNICEF. mentoring young athletes -- you name it. They will have to set up a special television network just for her public appearances -- all Yuna, all the time.
    And, she and Michelle will skate in the closing ceremony to "Hero".

    I can't wait to see Yuna as THE face of the 2018 Games.
    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 for Yu-Na in 2018, I do think she'll be heavily involved in promoting the games so it will be nice to see her sticking so close to it. Maybe she'll get a position on one of the news networks as a special correspondent for the duration of the games? Either way, I know we'll see a lot of her.

    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.
