Thanks for the video.She looks great, as usual.I'd love to see her in competition.
She looks in good shape. Unfortunately, she's too focus in helping Pyeongchang at this moment. It will be interesting to see if she's going to show up, once ISU makes the decision.
I love her "Kwantified" spiral. I can't wait to see her skate in competition again.
... but still no pointed toes.... :(
"It will be interesting to see if she's going to show up, once ISU makes the decision."I'll get Speed￥!!!!
I love this girl. She makes it so easy to be a fan of hers!!
she is amazing. Her choreos and transitions are so beautiful. I can't wait to see her skate at worlds.
Her choreo looks really nice. The amount of Korean press there just to see her practice is hilarious! I like that despite all the fame and money, she still seems genuinely humble. I still don't like her Sasha spin, but who cares.
She is so mesmerizing... the best skater bar none.
Wow just when I think she couldn't get any better than the Olympics, her form has somehow improved.All that hard work deserve a world stage. Let's hope she get it. As for all the 'toe point' nit pickers, it is rather desperate, it is as valid as criticize someone's performance for not smiling as they feel they should.
um... have good toe point is quite important to presentation - i am sure she would agree with it and i see her trying to point her toes. she wouldn't do it if she didn't think it's important. luckily her greatness in all other aspects of skating makes up for this imperfection. and hey, as much as we adore her, we can still criticize her right?
Her toe point looks improved! Look at any stills from last year. Soooo much better. She's definitely making an effort.
After watching her practice video, WOW, I can't help saying she is REALLY the best skater of all time. Not only her amazing artistry & beautiful transitional movenent, her step sequence is absolutely fantastic ( level 5!!! if any) Moreover, WOW, her spiral sequence is absolutely beautiful. Actually Yuna's spiral is well known for correctness. (It's shame some still talk about meaningless toe point.) Even Tarasova praised Yuna's perfect position saying Yuna's spiral is like the one measured with ruler. As far as I know, Yuna is the only lady who got GOE2 on spiral. (correct me if not) I believe on the list of Yuna's greatest & best skating skills like jumps, artistry, speed, spins etc , now we can definitely add beautiful spiral and fantastic steps. She's improved a lot, which I don't think possible as I thought she is perfect. Thank you, Yuna,for your hard work. Thanks God for the return of Queen Yuna. God bless Yuna and protect her all the time!
I agree, her extension has gotten a lot better. Her spins also look more centered (and therefore a bit faster), especially as she transitions to the I-Spin. Interesting, though, that she's not practicing her usual change of edge spiral.
"As for all the 'toe point' nit pickers, it is rather desperate, it is as valid as criticize someone's performance for not smiling as they feel they should."LOL. You're either trying to make a joke, totally uninformed, or so much of an obsessive fan that you're grasping at straws to be able to call your dear girl perfect. Nobody is. Not even the best skater in the world.
re evilapprenticeno one is calling any perfect and quit acting like some obsessive prowler who pretend they know everything. Some chef think some parsley is the most important finished on a dish, to others parsley is just parsley, get over it.
Wow--some real "ubers" here! I think Yu Na herself knew she had some (small) weaknesses and that is why she decided to train with Oppegard, at the Kwans' rink. Tarasova has criticized her spiral (mildly), as has Dick Button ("turn your foot out, dear"). So where else to get advice than from the sister and brother-in-law of the Kween of Spirals, Michelle Kwan!
Anonymous March 23, 2011 8:39 AM,Isn't this post itself a sort of joke, is it?I thought that all the comments above(including AJ) were making fun of her in disguise of raving about her.The absurdity is pretty obvious like calling an ordinary jogger in Central Park the fastest runner in the world.And I think some TV commentators (like Scott Hamilton) are doing the same thing.
