    Surprised the mistake came at the beginning, on the opening 3/3. The rest of the program was clean though.

    She did fine for a person just coming out of an injury. It was truly a rare occasion to see her missing the first combo by the way. Considering her usual consistency on the jumps, she will be just fine two months later.

I don't know...not as classy as before...?? And you nailed it. It WAS the SLEEVES!!!
    I tried to imagine the costume without sleeves and wow, then it looks great. Exotic.
    I think you guys just made my day... after being torn with the stress of my dress design and construction due next week, lol.

    Poor outing? Yuna is coming off a injury and is playing catch up with the other Ladies. It was her first competition of the season. I do think she needs to compete at least a couple more times though.

    I found her LP really superb! Absolutely fantastic. The version of Adios Nonino she chose is great as well. It underlines the melancholic and dissonant beauty of this amazing piece of music which can be also grand and majestic, in orchestral version, and which has very little to do with your average dance-parlor tango. Despite the fall and somewhat slow skating, Yuna seems to have yet improved in her skating skills. The flow was just mind-blowing. As for the dress, perhaps a small accent somewhere could enhance it. But, after all, this piece was composed by Piazzola upon his father's death. So the sober black gown is quite appropriate for the mournful mood it intends to evoke.

    As a big yuna fan, i lover her very much. But u cant always think that yuna is perfect all the time. She was injured a few months ago and only had 1 month to train before this competition. I think she did pretty well considering her condition. What she needs is stamina and confidence, u can c that she was very nervous before the lp, i hadnt seen her being that nervous be4. Anyways, i like these 2 programs and they have potential. I am sure yuna can deliver them ! Trust in yuna

    Gosh I love her programs this season already. These are very Olympic worthy programs and beautifully accentuate her unique qualities. I echo you, Symmetry!
    I can't wait to watch her to perform this with 100% stamina. This is great already and it will be epic then! Yuna is really one very special snowflake. Love, love her.

    Re: her costumes, they are good. I mean, I didn't like her SP dress at first in the practice pictures, but as a woman myself, I should have known better that with make-up and proper hairdo, dresses look very different. In actual competition, it was beautiful. I hope she doesn't make any drastic change to it. Maybe the sleeve can go, but other than that, not too much change please!
    Now her LP dress, hm, it's a bit stoic than I expected, but not bad. I guess she's not going for sensual tango feel, but more into the original theme of the music? Saying goodbye? But still you can use a bit more color with beads I think. Like dark purple or even dark green. Anyway, it could be better but not that bad either. And I like the slit in her skirt.

    Yes, yes. We get it. From this single competition it is clear she's lost it completely and her chances for even a bronze medal are doomed.

    She has had one month to prepare for this competition. Personally I didn't expect her to skate perfectly today because of her recent injury. 2,5 months will be enough for Yuna to improve these programmes and build stamina. I like a lot both of her programmes!

    Julia won't have chances neither for the gold or silver in Sochi, IMO. She is a very talented and lovely skater but the pressure will be tremendous for her in Sochi and I do not think she'll skate clean there unfortunately.

    the snarky me thought she'd borrowed agnes zawadzi's who's also wearing black backless number to tango music. i think the programs have potential but she needs to get in the mileage. her '09-10 season had mistakes on the grand prix but she worked it out in time for vancouver. maybe she'll want to do 4CC... cuz i don't know if korean nationals is enough.

    Don't deny the truth! Yuna will be very lucky to win bronze. You can bet on it.

    Yuna skated her LP beautifully, however, I don't really care for that music. As for her dress, Yuna looks great in anything she wears. I hope both she and Mao skate lights out at the Olympics!
