    Yuna and Mao, looking so innocent.

    Mao looks as though she's saying to Yuna "They say we get to go to Friendly's after the practice! "

    Mao said, she told to @Yunaaaa "Congrats! Let's have a pic taken together!". Yuna said to Mao "Otsukaresama(Good job)" in Japanese)

    Time for reflection

    Whatever else, Kim YuNa has to be considered the greatest competitor figure skating has ever seen.
    Good for USFSA for their decision to send Polina to the Olympics.
    Mao redeemed herself and made herself a legend

    Wow! I guess, in her spare time, she learned some Japanese! Way to go Queen! She even compliments her subjects in their respective languages

    Yes, that's exactly what the world needs.

    I seriously don't know what your issue is with this thread, since Carolina and Adelina all their own respective Olympic Thread, but if you don't enjoy it, perhaps the common sense would suggests you should just stay away? Perhaps? Maybe?

    I think back in the day, when they were still juniors and the geopolitics hasn't reared its ugly head, the two were pretty tight. I even remember seeing terribly young Mao and Yuna on Japanese TV shows. I could see Yuna picking up a few Japanese here and there.

    It's common for Koreans to learn Japanese or Chinese as a secondary language, I believe.

    Is Kim Yuna the only skater in history to podium at every single major event she's attended?

    Yes, for ladies. For men, I am not sure.

    Yuna's not the only skater, there were other's such as G&G and half-a-dozen others, but she is the only one under COP as far as I know.

    Yulia was keeping up with her; never finishing lower than Gold or Silver medals, except for a Bronze medal at TEB last year when she was injured, but she lost her podium streak at the Olympics. Darn. Now I have to add a qualifier to the statement that she's always podiumed.

    Congratulations to Yuna on winning two Olympic Golds.

    She is the most complete package of a skater if I've ever seen one. She lives and breathes ice, it seems. I have not seen such command and presence even from men's skating.

    Yes.

    She she also manage to have won at least a short program or a free skate in every competition she has ever entered. So no matter how badly she did in one of the two skates, she always managed to came 1st in the other (lots of small medals). It is an incredible record she kept till the very end, to win the SP by a tiny margin at Sochi - despite the hostile environment, skating early and biased judging.
