    I can see the headline now... Restraining Order Issued Against Overenthusiastic Figure Skating Fan
    Figure skater Yuna Kim was recently accosted by a fan with suggestions on how to improve her programs. The man was escorted away by police while repeatedly shouting, "The program must have an emotional climax with a great release of emotion!"

    Fixed your post for you.

    Seriously, it's just a forum. I feel much better about my posts than someone who goes from thread to thread saying things like

    Take that kind of posts to YNKF ... oh wait, you might not be welcome there either, since you just insulted the entire member base.

    Apparently I would be more welcome there than you, given the frosty reception with which your treatises on Yuna Kim's long program were met.

    The "Bachelor" TV show was on tonight-I half watched, mainly to see Seoul. Saw Pop K something like that. Such an enthisastic group of fans in a mall. . What a nice city! OT just wanted to say it looks like a great city, I saw a bit of the old Palace. All that food...dying to know if it is good!

    Here's a great fancam of her Adios Nonino LP in Sochi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYxBJt6XuOI (You'll want to watching in full-screen mode.)

    Stable camera, clear picture, wide angle of the entire rink. It sounds like the audio was taken from the no-commentary broadcast.

    ETA: Here's fancam of her SP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hl4_W5Sv_xE A little shaky for the first few seconds, but stable and clear from then on. Again, watch in full screen and in HD since it's a wide-angle shot of the entire rink from afar.

    Still amazed to realize she went clean back-to-back at both of her Olympic games.

    Thank you, Krislite. The bird-eye videos are the next best thing for those who were not there to see her performances in person. Those who have seen Yuna's competitive skating are blessed witnessing it. I wish I had.

    How Johnny Weir can say "Yuna played it safe" or some such to this majestic and magnanimous performance is beyond my comprehension. I can only watch these videos in awe, and cannot imagine what it'd be like watching the performance live. I fully understand that he needs a job and wants to succeed, but he went beyond what is necessary. (and successfully deluded himself in the process)

    Hey, this one is below the one Krislite linked to on YouTube. Its angle isn't that great but the screen is clearer @1080p. And I got to watch one more 3lutz before her performance began. (the screaming/crying girl is a little too much, though, as well as those who chant "Russia")

    I hate to think of everything from conspiracy theory point of view but that wait is unusually long. Anyway, it's a great quality cam I found thanks to Kristlie's original link.

    You think that was bad? The first fan cam vid I found was BY that screaming/crying girl and it was unbearable. I kind of get where Weir and others are coming from. Upon a first viewing the performance does seem tentative. It isn't until you view it multiple times that you see what a masterpiece it truly is. It gets more rewarding every time you watch it, which you can't say for Adelina's performance, which was compelling the first time around but loses its novelty after a few viewings. I think that says it all.

    I hate the fact the vuvuzelas went off as she is about to launch her combo during warm up in the beginning and made her pop. It is a horrible intimation tactic that should have no place in this sport. They should ban this to be used in future competitions. Luckily Yuna handled herself well, she really fought through it.

    For the Short program, do you remember that official looking guy in dark suit at the rink side tries to distract her by waving and then did the devil sign?

    Hope someone track him down and if he is affiliated with ISU or Russian Skating federation, then it'd makes this whole Olympic competition even more shameful.

    Actually, if he's affiliated with the Russian Skating Federation, you should send him chocolates, since the devil sign is a common cheering gesture in Russia.

    As a side note, I would also say that if a skater is able to get distracted by a random dude standing by the boards doing whatever, that skater has bigger problems. Kim is a solid competitor so it shouldn't be a problem for her. Soviet male pair skaters used to be drilled for their lifting footwork with the lights going on and off in a skating rink, or a coach hitting them with a stick across the shins. After a few years of this, nothing, nothing could disrupt your footwork and therefore endanger your partner. You're telling me you're concerned about a "devil sign"?

    I don't think he was trying to distract her; possibly just playing it up for the camera as I've seen countless people do before.
