    Actually it was all about Pyeongchang2018 not about Yuna. She was standing on the next Olympics symbol. Kind of represent the end of this event and pass the torch to the new host.

    it's not about yuna.. she was instrumental for pyeongchang though.. they could have just show a korean flag and say see you in pyeonchang.. but they still asked yuna to stand there as a symbol.. so in a way..i'm just saying it was a nice gesture from the organizers..

    yes it was. and I agree 100% that yuna is a symbol for the whole nation. but it is so wrong to implied that part to be her tribute because it wasn't. also it isn't fair to another skaters who will retire after this event too.

    Um, it wasn't a "tribute", but it was a classy and respectful move to incorporate Yu-Na into the Pyeongchang tie-in. I appreciate the gala organizers for doing it.

    Yu-Na herself didn't know they were planning that until she got to the gala rehearsal, but she considered it an honor. She has a right to and her fans have a right to consider it an honor.

    Am I the only who felt that they didn't give Yuna enough camera time, aside from that moment?
    Also, am I the only one who felt that Carolina high-fiving with Adelina on the podium (during flower ceremony) while Yuna looked on was a bit insensitive on Caro's part given the circumstance?

    None of the skaters were really given a moment in that finale, so I thought it was special that Yu-Na got that moment. The Olympic gold medalists led the way for one of the group maneuvers, which I thought was fine.

    At the very beginning of the gala in the first half, when they showed a flag for each of the gala skaters, Yu-Na was placed at the center of one of the borders. When they turned to face the audience for the first time, she was at the very front and center. I liked that.

    Also, am I the only one who felt that Carolina high-fiving with Adelina on the podium (during flower ceremony) while Yuna looked on was a bit insensitive on Caro's part given the circumstance?
    After the high-five, Adelina shook hands with Yu-Na. I thought it was fine.

    I think we're all being too sensitive. Yuna shook hands with Adelina while Caro was watching too. I think the skaters are completely accepting what happened as it is.

    And it's the judges and the ISU that are the problem. Ugh.

    I think Carolina was just excited and got caught up in the moment. She finally skated well at the Olympics and made the podium. I don't really blame her after her nightmare performances at 2010 Vancouver Olympics and disappointing 2006 Olympics.

    In my eyes, she was the greatest. What gets me about the result in Sochi is that she represented good and was slayed by insurmountable evil. She's just a person, not perfect, so I'm not talking about that corny type of good. She was whole, her own self, and triumphed until the corrupt were too much.

    The greatest figure skater of all time, and the last legend the sport has ever had has now retired, and I wish her only the best of the best.
