I dont think the GP circut excite Yuna Kim anyomore because she does have enough of those medals and I will say it again. Nothing else to prove.
And it's pretty much official. She says she's considering/probably going to be
at Korean nationals...
People who are not fond of Yuna's program should ask themselves, which skater in current discipline can perform Yuna's program? IMHO, there's no other skater who can perform Yuna's LP. No one has the enough stamina(heck Yuna doesn't even have it 100% yet), quality of the jumps, and the power to execute this program. So they should think this before criticize this program. Of course, Yuna wasn't perfect at Golden Spin, but pretty sure no one can replicate a program like hers. Again, I'm not saying she's perfect, but no ones comes even close to her performance at Golden Spin. Imagine what she can do if her condition is at 100%
"I don't like this program."
"Well, can anyone else do it like she can."
"I guess you're right. I like it now because my opinion is influenced by how her competitors might perform to this program."
I hardly think those who are not fond of it should make their decision on who could or could not hypothetically do it better. That's just a dumb way to look at things.
And it stands now, this program needs revision and improvement, no matter who she is. Period.
Yuna is the greatest skater of all time, my favorite. I'm sure that by the Olympics she will have it all figured out and perform her very best. That said, there's nothing wrong with having reservations about her LP in its unfinished form. I'm more than satisfied with her season debut, and just wish she will do better at the Olympics, both technically and mastering the program itself. Imagine if she had skated same at Worlds last year as NRW, how the world would have been deprived of one of the greatest performances of all-time!
And someone else said elsewhere I talk about the same things for the last 2 days...for one weekend in 9 months I get to gush and nitpick over my favorite's new programs. I won't apologize for it.
Look at Lulu's version
Her ending pose. Her elegance. what a treat. Yuna's TES are so superior to Lulu's, but the performance aspect is much lower. I wish David could put some more thought into the program. Yuna should be able to create a mood, and blow everyone's mind with her TES at the same time.
