    If you took a different girl with a different name and gave her EXACTLY the same performance as Yuna did, she would not make the top five. Easier technical program, no choreography, no speed and no energy, no connection, bored face. Maybe 6th or 7th, somewhere around Ashley.

    Oh my god. This is becoming actually hilarious. I'm not even disgusted any more.

    I agree with you. I was underwhelmed by her programs last year. Last year's were far better (as were Vancouver's, of course).

    Yuna has been saying herself that Adios Nonino was her hardest free skate yet.

    i think it's fine what you say because it's a complete preference. But objectively, I just wanted to add that the program wasn't intended to be exciting but reflective, emotive, and nuanced.

    Isn't Adios supposed to be goodbye/funeral music? Kind of hard to be all spunky when you're performing an elegy.

    Disliked Yuna's programs this season, but Wilson hasn't been really doing good choreography this season. Hanyu's Romeo and Juliet program this year was subpar to his 2012 one.

    How about this, if Adelina skated exactly the same performance as she did but she's from a country OTHER than Russia, where do you think she'd placed?

    Yep. And how about if Yuna was skating for Russia for her second gold? God, she would've cleared ~160, easy.

    I am disgusted by people trying to mock Yuna's performance to justify Sot's win.

    Oh my..

    I really wish that, there exists some imaginary skating world, where someone like Yuna, with great precision in all of her skills with one of the best jumping technique ever skating world has ever seen, with superior musicality, can be placed only by 5-6th . You know what? In this world, we may not even worry about judging scandal like Last night. Since in this imaginary world, somebody like Sot may not even have a chance to skate her free program.

    Hadn't read all the discussion but could someone explain how Russian skaters were inflated by not having any Russian judge on the board?

    First! Numbers are numbers, they don't care about countries!

    One thing for sure - Yuna might have been able to pull of Adelina's program with the same vigor and even additional gracefullness. Adelina will never be able to pull off any one Yuna's programs. Her artistry is just not there, at least not yet.

    Yuna's programs and performances will remain in people's minds for a long time and people will revisit her performance on youtube. Adelina may have won gold and Russians may be proud of that, but I don't know how many Russians remember her performance rather than her medal color.

    Yuna was so popular coming in to this competition - was it because people wanted to see competition? People have been interested in finding out what her programs will be, what costumes she will wear, and what kind of choreography she will show starting at the moment she finishes her last season. People want to see her.

    Winning at Olympics over Yuna doesn't make up for all this, so Yuna fans needn't really worry even if the medal color ends up not changing.

    Isn't the fact that Yuna is the FIRST woman from Korea to achieve all this success proved enough that she can be any race and be just as amazing with her scores?


    She medal in every freaking competition she competed in throughout her life and her country never had history of ladies figure skating!

    You really tried it.

    Exactly, exactly! Finally something that makes sense!
