At this rate Yuna may peak again at the Olympics! Fingers crossed and hope the best for her~
Peak at the right time, it's stamina problem i assume, she did a clean double axel just now haha
Yuna's got quite a sense of humor. Doing a double Axel during the medal ceremony.
Yuna is enjoying herself, and she wants to show something as close to flawless and special as she can make it, and she wants to win.
What did she say in the medal ceremony, im so curious
OK, now I've seen it. She really is so graceful.
Indeed, compared to Golden Spin, she was faster and seemed to have better stamina.
I'm surprised it's the 2As that are giving her a little trouble so far this season. Stepout in Zagreb, a little scratchy yesterday as well as her 1st 2A today, and singled 2nd 2A.
But on the other hand, oh boy does she seem to have a safety margin on the Lz and F! Seems like she never misses those anymore! I don't see her popping a F like at the 2011WC LP.
The choreography is beautiful and elegant, but I also am not the biggest fan of Adiós Nonino. Especially when compared to last year's Les Misérables, which I thought was just a masterpiece, especially the musical arrangement.
But to be fair, I've always loved the music of Les Misérables and thought Adiós Nonino was overused... Only exception was Chen Lu's Adiós Nonino in her 1998SP, but that wasn't the objective me anyway
Not a single second is wasted. Wow. I loved Les Mis, but this is a much more sophisticated program than Les Mis.
Unfortunately this still didn't do it for me (Yuna's free skate). This program still lacks. Just comparing side by side to her past programs there is just much more stroking and "empty" moments where Yuna awkwardly fills the gap like extra rotations after spin elements. This program is far to reserved to play to her potential. Just my personal opinion. It's just not an Olympic program, and mediocre at best even if it were usual seasons. Maybe Yuna has raised the bar too high for herself but it seems like by popular opinion this is by far many people's least favorite of all her free programs. I think best comparison to make with this program is with her SP last season (Vampire's Kiss) as it is quite transcendental but still it was superior.
Just watched her double axel in victory ceremony, and it just looks fine:D The music hasn't gotten into me yet, but I just love the choreos, and the spins and step sequences are wayyy better than those of Zagreb. She gained much more speed and power-I'm sure by the time she performs it at the Olympics, it'll become a masterpiece
