    A news clip including an interview with Zoueva

    I love her(and Charlie's) reaction after seeing Yu-Na's jumps(I think).

    + Today's practice reports said that Yu-Na did a clean run-through of her FS.
    (Edit: There was a mistake with the 3S+2T and 2A+2T+2Lo, but other jumps were clean.)

    SBS showed Yu-Na's run-through, so hopefully, it will be up on YouTube soon.

    Are you going to create a thread for each day's practice sessions Giveher6.0s? Enough already.

    I wonder how long they get to practice each day in Sochi? I heard 30-45 minutes in the official practice rink per day. That is very little time. I hope Kim is able to get in practice at another rink somewhere in Sochi. Even an hour per day sounds so little before the Olympics. I know they also train off ice, but you'd think the best practice would always be on ice. I don't ice skate myself though, so not sure what the standard is...

    Skaters are provided with daily TWO on-ice practice sessions of 40 min each, either in the second rink or the main rink depending on the practice schedule.

    Yuna is skipping today's (Saturday) on-ice practice sessions to take a rest, per the plan she had mentioned before. She will resume her on-ice practice with Sunday's first official practice session at the main rink.

    How so? Being exhausted before the SP is worse, I'd say. Every athlete needs a day to rest and recharge.

    I really think that, at this stage of her career, Yuna should be given a little benefit of the doubt as far as her prep choices are concerned.

    (As a general comment: I don't know if you've participated in sports in a serious, systematic way, but in my own experience, you'll often want to taper down training before the big event; this allows your body to be fully recovered and fresh on the day. Your mind, too. Of course, every athlete is different, but that's a very common approach)

    They say it's because the ice condition in the practice rink is not so good, and she probably decided that taking off a day and having some rest would be better.

    Yu-Na also skipped practices in Vancouver.
