Yuna's Ice Rink
it's funny... some posters are saying that don't criticize the skaters.. after all they're only skating and should not be blamed by this mess.. and yet here is a skater who criticized her fellow skater and described her program as weaker... imagine that..

I don't agree with this at all. From what I think I know about Yuna, she is very humble and never once have I heard her say how "good" she is. Rather, she always says she is proud of herself for skating well, that is all she can ask of herself. From her comments at the Olympics, all I heard from her was that she was satisfied with her skate and that she did the best she could. She smiled on the podium with her Silver medal while Adelina jumped up and down in joy.

Criticizing or commenting?

2. Yuna would only have been talking about her own scores...not the placement nor the scores of other skaters. She's already stated she didn't get a chance to see the other skaters' performances.
Figuring skating is a sport where you're really only competing against yourself. You prepare your routine, and you deliver it as best you possibly can. You don't change anything based on the performance of other skaters, so there'd be no reason to watch other skaters.
