    Ugh disgusting disgusting. This Olympics is a sham and disappointment allround. Gross judging and gross reaction from many Yuna fans.

    P.S. Julia is absolutely livid about the gold medals. You can tell :lol:

    I am glad for her sake that she probably can't read Korean. I can't read Korean but it's not hard to guess the subject of those comments.

    No. Her jumps are too small, too ugly, with bad technique (especially on her double Axel). As soon as Julia turns into a young woman she will lose them. Oh, and that flutz is gross and needs to be fixed, and she needs to learn to listen to the music and feel it. But she's fifteen, there's time. The major problem is the jumps. I don't know that they can be fixed now.


    I wonder if the Yunabots who want to rip away Adelina's medal are many of the same Miraibots who wanted to tear Polina's Olympic dream away from her? Food for thought.

    There were many comments in Google-Russian to kill herself and so on:( I think they were reported. And many nasty comments in English like "You are so ugly/don't smile/yuna queen/u cheater" And MUCH nastier, that I WON'T write here. I'm surprised by the attack. It's VICIOUS! You'll think that koreans live and breathe Yuna, she is their goddess..

    It makes me worried for Yuna for the next Olympics, to be honest. I worry she's going to be pressured into skating like she was here and then if she falls short again it will be even worse. I fear they will turn on her like the Russians did to Plushy.

    I have never seen fans like this in figure skating.

    South Korea Puts Anger Aside After Olympic Skating Disappointment

    So when she was dethroned in Sochi by a Russian teenager in a much-debated decision, it was not surprising that Ms. Kim’s country, which has long tied international sports achievements to self-worth, reacted with anger.

    A popular novelist said he would remember these Games as the “Suchi Olympics,” using the word for “humiliation.” A petition on Change.org calling for an investigation by the International Skating Union drew more than 1.9 million signatures, most of them from South Koreans. And many online commentators said Ms. Kim had been cheated of a gold medal because her country was “small and weak.”

    South Korea’s focus on sports achievements seems to be rooted in a sense of having been bullied by other nations. After the Korean War, the country used nationalism to consolidate internal unity amid economic hardship. South Koreans often treated sports as an avenue to affirm the national pride they desperately wanted.
