    Fortunately, it seems like her injury isn't severe at all.

    According to an article, she doesn't need to wear a cast and she'll be recovered in 3~4 weeks.

    Apparently, the metatarsals are bones in the mid-foot. Based on the comments by the KSU official quoted in the article, it doesn't sound like a complete fracture, which is lucky:

    "If she continues to train hard, her injury could worsen," a KSU official said. "She has to slow down and must receive further treatment. She may need further rehab after her treatment."

    If it were something like a gross fracture, one would assume that the phrasing of the comment would be somewhat different ("If she continues to train hard...").

    I'm sure further details will be forthcoming, and I'm hoping that Yuna can recover quickly from this.

    Well the injuries are already starting to mount up. I was looking forward to all the top skaters competing this season on the GP including Yuna and yes even Evan.

    Oh no.... I was so looking forward to seeing her new programs. It doesn't sound like a season-ending injury, but that kind of foot injuries can be pesky. I've heard of many nagging cases with soccer players. I hope she allow herself to stay off the ice until it's safe to resume, even if it hurts her chance at the Olympics. I don't want to see her compete in pain again.

    All that sports, Yuna Kim's management said she doesn't have serious injury. She is just injured in the bone, not muscles and not a ligament. And it is micro-injury.
    She thaught whether she goes to TEB or not. (She decided to throw up only SC at first.) But she decided that she will not compete this GP season for perfect condition.

    She will do treatment and training at the same time and decide whether she takes part in other games before Sochi.

    Sorry Kuan. I can understand the disappointment. I am also looking forward to her GP season competitions.

    On a brighter note, the injury doesn't sound that bad that she couldn't recover fast. I am sure Yuna will heal on time for Olympics. Yes, get well soon, Yuna.

    Some Yuna fans did buy the whole thing just for HER skates and everything else was a tiny bonus, thus canceling it accordingly.

    Others, especially those who were planning for TEB, didn't cancel the whole trip. Instead they will be enjoying the visit to Paris and watch other events too.

    I as a selfish fan hope Yuna competes in the 4CCs so I can watch her, the men's event and ice dance. I just can't afford to go to the Olys whatsoever.
