Minusaramadad from Arctaroon
She has already accomplished the unimaginable: winning a bronze medal just days after loosing her mother, in the process becoming an inspiration for millions, even those who are not skating fans. It is a wise decision.
Japan Open was impressing. Canada could have clinched the Team event Gold with her IMO

I can understand her decision, but it is pity.
If Yu-Na will be out of comptition (I hope, not), she even would have a chance for gold. She is more complex and consistent than either Mao or Kostner.
A team gold will surely be hers if.......
