Article: [Sochi Olympics] Silver medal Kim Yuna... even the Russian media praised her to be 'perfect'

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+1,860, -7] This is absolutely dirty. What's the point of even having judges and an Olympic board...? And why is the federation not saying anything? I was so apologetic but grateful to Kim Yuna when the score came out at the end... I wonder if she would've still received this kind of treatment if she had not been Korean..

2. [+1,720, -9] Sotnikova, are you proud? Are you not embarrassed? Do you truly feel that you did better than Kim Yuna? I would've been so embarrassed if I were her

3. [+1,120, -12] I never write comments but... everyone needs to shut up. Kim Yuna should never be judged based on points.

4. [+54, -0] I just saw the scene of them takin ga picture... and Kim Yuna was unknowingly standing in the middle until she realized and moved aside. But that Russian b*tch didn't react at all even while Kim Yuna was in the middle... Yeah, I'm sure even she realizes that she doesn't deserve that spot.

Starin via Nate

1. [+2,800, -34] I will never forget this you Russian f*ckers

2. [+2,483, -37] Never use the word failure with her name. She will always be #1 to us.

3. [+2,063, -34] Are they seriously insane?

4. [+405, -3] The entire world knows the truth. Korea knows the truth. Kim Yuna is a gold medalist.

5. [+330, -7] No matter how much Yuna loves figure skating... figure skating is dead to me today. I vow never to watch it again. I'm sorry, Yuna. Thank you, we love you. Thank you.

  2. The Next Olympics are being held in South Korea, and they will not forget this Russia........... be afraid, be VERY afraid

    ReplyDelete
  3. But Queen Yuna is retiring after this Olympics. What a pity...

    ReplyDelete
  4. "South Korea won't forget this. Pyeongchang will be fun"

    ReplyDelete
  5. whatever queen still slays and y'all will deal!
    never in her entire career she finishes off a podium, the worst she got was a bronze.

    she helped korea win the bid for pyeongchang winter olympic, made a sport agency to promote figure skating, gives hope to every young korean girl to continue their figure skating. and improves korean winter sports constantly.

    only 23 years old and she achieved so much already.

    long live ice queen. it will be so sad losing u in olympics, when will we ever see a female figure skater as magical as her & michelle kwan?

    tl;dr

  6. Wow this makes me mad but I knew this was coming ever since she barely got 1st in the short skate....so dumb

    ReplyDelete
  7. There's no need to drag the whole Russia into this. Sportsmanship please everyone...

    ReplyDelete
  8. S'okay Korea. 2018 in Pyeongchang. I really don't care how badly Russia gets the short end of the stick then because these Sochi Olympics have been terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  9. people need to look at their score cards and understand why the results came out the way they did. yuna's program was clean, but not her best and she held back a lot technically for the olympics. not to mention her own scores have been wildly inflated for years. hope koreaboos understand this.

    ReplyDelete
  10. She was so classy and still held her head high when the results were announced. What a true champion.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Why am I even not surprised with these reactions..

    ReplyDelete
  12. Since this was her last Olympics I really wanted her to win Gold...

    ReplyDelete
  13. The problem isn't that she is korean or asian, the problem is that Russia was playing at home, moreover the one at fault is the jury, not the russian skater...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh wow...ending it in pyeongchang would have been ideal though....

    ReplyDelete
  15. this is kind of how I felt when tessa and scott didn't get gold

    ReplyDelete
  16. They feel so strongly about this.
    Kim Yuna was amazing but the scores are the scores, you just gotta live with that.

    ReplyDelete
  17. She's so pretty I had to rewatch her perfomance because of her beauty that distracted me TT TT

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yuna was absolutely robbed tonight. I speak as someone who knows how the judging for figure skating works, and Adelina was incredibly overscored tonight. Yuna did lack in technical scores -- Adelina edged her there by a few points -- but Adelina's component scores were RIDICULOUS. Adelina, better skating skills than Yuna AND Carolina Kostner of Italy? What are these judges, blind???


    Yuna has put her foot down and will be retiring after Sochi (she may go to Worlds in March, but I'm not positive), but as the next Winter Olympics will be in Pyeongchang, Russia had better be prepared to have their asses handed back to them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sotnikova did beautifully. Her routine was technically superior to Kim Yuna's and everyone could see that. It's certainly not the first time a technically superior routine with minor flaws won over a perfectly executed but less technically difficult one (gymnastics, diving, etc). They both did well and I could have understood either one winning gold.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think the whole world disagrees with the results.
    nevertheless she's a legend and she showed how corrupted this sport really is.

    ReplyDelete
  21. it´s kinda obvious that the russians´scores were heavily inflated, look at yulia lipsnitkaya´s score...so high for someone who committed errors.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Adelina's performance was impressive and beautiful. I don't understand why a seventeen-year-old is getting all this hate for such an amazing performance.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Remember to use kpop songs yeah in 2018

    ReplyDelete
  24. If this had taken place in a different country, Sotnikova wouldn't have won gold. Just sayin'

    ReplyDelete
  25. It was 4:30 am in Korea and the whole country was raging. Rightly so.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Jeez was it necessary to call her a bitch? and to call out on an entire nation? Like these netizens who commented (and agreed) on these articles are any better. Goddamn.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It was still a great middle finger to Russia for overlooking her in the team event. She had the skate of her life (even if it's in the center of this disgrace).

    ReplyDelete
  28. As someone who also know how skating works, I strongly believe that Kim Yuna was totally underscored on her SP. Totally. The Russian skaters where nowhere near her on the short but lol at the component scores those judges gave.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Why do I feel these things happen so frequently to korea...with the fencer in the summer olympics and now with yuna

    ReplyDelete
  30. 4. [+405, -3] The entire world knows the truth. Korea knows the truth. Kim Yuna is a gold medalist.

    She's the number 1 to me but still congrats to the others :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Adelina's performance was really nice, though. Some of her moves were really hard and I was surprised that she managed to them. I feel like people are being too Kim Yuna biased.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Gosh no need for the hate on the Russian girl though, she didn't make up her scores, the judges gave it to her. There might be favoritism or not, but the Russian girl just won a gold medal, or course she'd be happy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. uhm well i would too considering this is the olympics, and she could have made HISTORY by being the 3rd woman to ever win back to back gold.. and everyone can see she was robbed of the win /: really unfair and unfortunate

    ReplyDelete
  34. This was rigged. Even ESPN called Adelina Sotnikova out.

    ReplyDelete
  35. i don't think this should be reason for anyone to encourage korea to cheat too. if anything, it's more reason for pyeongchang to be the most fair of the olympics the world's seen. that minute at the kiss&cry was the worst moment of my fangirl life.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was STUNNED that Kim Yuna placed second.
    It was not even by a small margin but by 5 points. If you watch the performances one after the other there is a clear difference in execution.
    This is not to put down the performance of Sotnikova because she skated beautifully on home ice but Yuna was effortlessly stunning and blew it out of the park.
    This is not the first scoring issue and with the way all this faulty judging is being handled, it most likely won't be the last.
    Congratulations to all the skaters though, it was amazing and so much fun to watch!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Korea is having a bad round with puntuation and mistakes in the olympics (this one and the prevoius qith the swimming medal and the fencing. I know it's quite hard to accept and the anger doesn't go away, you always remeber the mistakes. I still remeber the soccer match of 2002 against South Korea and how we (spain) were robbed and I was a child xD


    So, Kim Yuna fighting! you did a good job! be proud!

    ReplyDelete
  38. How is it history to be the third person to do something.

    ReplyDelete
  39. im sorry if you compare kim yuna's vancouver performance to that russians girls performance... i still dont understand how there is a 1 point difference

    ReplyDelete
  40. the fencer was so arrogant though. She said that she wanted the gold, but she acted as if she would have won against the other finalist. She lost the opportunity to go to the finals, but yet everyone acted as if she was robbed from the gold medal.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm really unhappy with the results, but I don't think Sotnikova deserves all the hate. If you are going to curse someone, curse the judges.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Because she messed up a couple times. Nobody is disagreeing that she was very good, but Yuna was flawless.

    ReplyDelete
  43. SHe's the real goddess. its like she sings with her body... her moves made me cry tbqh she's an unreal beauty and talent

    ReplyDelete
  44. I watched it live and Adelina´s was way overscored, just because she´s russian and because Yulia Lipnitskaya (their gold medalist hope) fell and score low on her free program. Adelina got a point which is a hairstrand away from Kim Yuna´s world record breaking performance in Vancouver 2010, and just go and compare the two perfs and you´ll see how ridiculous this is.

    Even the commentators in my country and all proffessional figure skaters around the world are shocked and in disbelief over how underscored Kim Yuna was. And how she got robbed of her gold, Carolina of her silver and Mao Asada of her free program! Hell Mao was even the only female who executed a tripple axel flawlessly.

    The win that I watched today was just too riggid and shady. Seriously Russia should reflect. I can´t believe they´ve pulled a 5 point different between Kim Yuna and Adelina??! Seriously, everyone who have eyes could see how this is totally ridiculous and unfair this is.

    Russia should just wait and see. What goes around comes around #PyeongChang2018 will come back and bite them in the ass.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Also, can we talk about how at least American media is butchering her name? Drives me insane.

    ReplyDelete
  46. yeah like i agree that yuna was robbed but i'm not here for bullying 17 years old

    ReplyDelete
  47. Were the judges really that biased? Wow, that's nothing that should happen in the olympics!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The Russian scored 18 points higher than she ever scored in her life. How does a freak performance like this happen? Lol judged sports are too subjective

    ReplyDelete
  49. Anyone please tell me... i am confused. I saw Yuna winning a short program. Didn't she receive a gold medal for that ?

    ReplyDelete
  50. omg eres español?
    hahahha anyways koreans remember this! i went to seoul this year and "old" people was talking about that match lol

    ReplyDelete
  51. ppl do realize the panel of judges isn't comprised of russian right? or koreans in the next games?

    ReplyDelete
  52. The world of figure skating won´t forget this!!! Totally ridiculous, unfair and dirty by Russia.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I thought Yuna's scores were fine; they didn't have the same magic as in Vancouver, so I thought they were fair given the circumstances. It was the judges' bizarre overgenerosity of Adelina's short AND free skate component scores that ruined this Olympics for me.


    I do think Adelina skated well and was deserving of a medal; she had two relatively clean performances, after all. She's known to implode in her free skate but skated fairly well today. I just don't think Adelina's medal should've been /gold/.

    ReplyDelete
  54. gold medal winner will forever be known as "that russian girl who won instead of yuna kim, what was her name again?"

    ReplyDelete
  55. Honestly to k-netz that blaming the Russian girl is not fair. She didn't do anything here! So better keep their filthy mouth shut before Russia blow their country into NOTHING!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think Yuna is way above Won Bin. Won Bin doesn't get international positive attention on Korea like yuna has

    ReplyDelete
  57. [+54, -0] I just saw the scene of them takin ga picture... and Kim Yuna was unknowingly standing in the middle until she realized and moved aside. But that Russian b*tch didn't react at all even while Kim Yuna was in the middle... Yeah, I'm sure even she realizes that she doesn't deserve that spot. 

    I noticed that too -.-
    Knetizens reactions: kekekekekeke (this was the only thing I understood while going through the comments lol)

    ReplyDelete
  58. 7 or more of the judges was from the Sovjet. Go read more articles about this controversary: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/brennan/2014/02/20/winter-olympics-games-sochi-figure-skating-women-yuna-kim-gracie-gold/5643143/

  59. Will Netizens accuse us as being secret Russians now, instead of secret Japanese?
    [gets Russian hat ready]

    ReplyDelete
  60. I saw Kim Yuna's performance and it was really good but I wasn't as impressed as with Adelina's. Both deserved medals and I'm glad they got them.

    ReplyDelete
  61. 1. [+1,860, -7] This is absolutely dirty. What's the point of even having judges and an Olympic board...? And why is the federation not saying anything? I was so apologetic but grateful to Kim Yuna when the score came out at the end... I wonder if she would've still received this kind of treatment if she had not been Korean..
    Umm no. Judges score by how well you perform and the mistakes that you commit. They don't judge you by what country you're from. You're overreacting.

    ReplyDelete
  62. "But that Russian b*tch" "Sotnikova, are you proud? Are you not embarrassed? Do you truly feel
    that you did better than Kim Yuna? I would've been so embarrassed if I
    were her"

    wow grew up she's 17 years old, even if she was overscored it's not her fault

    ReplyDelete
  63. i agree she was great but was she THAT perfect to receive that high of a score

    ReplyDelete
  64. TotallyajapanesenetizenFebruary 20, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    The writing was on the wall.

    Russian hockey team out so they may as well fix it so they get to have the “queen of the ball.”

    Whatever. Hopefully someone will be called out for this. It’s only obvious who was the better skater and of course that person did not get gold for the sake of not being a citizen in the host country.

    Screw the Olympics, screw figure skating, and especially screw figure skating judges. What the eff is the point. These kids spend their lives learning this craft only to be screwed by politics later on.

    How in the world can Julia be in 1st place over Mao? With higher PCS? Julia fell —twice.
    Julia’s PCS is 70.06. Mao was 69.68

    ReplyDelete
  65. I don't find that much of a big deal. Other countries' media routinely butcher American names. It goes both ways.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Her landings were not smooth at all. Performance wise, yes she was good, but if we're talking technique, she really didn't deserve gold, even without Kim Yuna in the picture.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Above Won Bin, she's an Olympic athlete.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Goes to show how they are over-reacting out of love and passion for what Yuna stands for. Sotnikova gave the skate of her life and her technicalities were> Yuna. Yuna was beautiful but she played safe and paid.

    ReplyDelete
  69. it gives me chills whenever i see that man on your dp...don't you have any other pics to use as a dp? a cute puppy or something? lol

    ReplyDelete
  70. 2. [+1,720, -9] Sotnikova, are you proud? Are you not embarrassed? Do you truly feel that you did better than Kim Yuna? I would've been so embarrassed if I were her

    LOL. If there's someone that should be embarrassed that is the judges that gave the medal to her knowing that Yuna's short program was technically perfect and way harder to interpret than sotnikova's .As an italian that was following SOCHI for Carolina Kostner I felt ashamed for Russian's behavior. Our speakers too. It's true that Russia has chased this gold medal for years but, lol, just because you're the hosting Nation, that doesn't give you the right to ruin a sport (:

    Sotnikova did good, Yuna did regally. they're both great performers and skaters, the finger should pointing towards a different culprit, though.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Been waiting for this. She was absolutely ROBBED.

    ReplyDelete
  72. This reminds me so much of Salt Lake City 2002 ...Time for more changes in judging?

    ReplyDelete
  73. si soy española xD

    Yeah! they are very proud of this match (and one similar against Portugal or Italy, I don't rembember but they were robbed too xD) and the competition in general. So when the topic appears with some korean friends I just said, "please let's change the subjet"

    ReplyDelete
  74. Oh, and I like how Russia added the team event skating event just to rack up another gold too.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Looking at the developments of this whole medal robbing controversy, it has been revealed that two Russians, one being Ukrainian and was confirmed to have been involved in a rigging incident in Nagano Olympics, and one being the wife of Russian Skating Federation chair/prez, were part of the judging panel.

    http://www.reddit.com/r/olympics/comments/1ygp7i/yuna_kim_was_robbed/cfke9fl

    Also, let's also point out how obvious the Russians totally gave Kim Yuna low scores. Just look at the columns where Yuna got 8's and 7's (note that columns are placed randomly so as not to point fingers but lol the pattern of low scores for Kim Yuna was tooooo obvious to even ignore)

    http://www.isuresults.com/results/owg2014/owg14_Ladies_FS_Scores.pdf

    LOL talk about fairness and credibility.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Yeah I did and I'm leaving it to the judges. In my honest opinion, I think Yuna did seriously good! but hey..i'm not a judge.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It still doesn't justify the immense (not to mention unnecessary) hate given to her. If they want to blame someone, blame the jury for giving her that score.

    ReplyDelete
  78. did that sotnikova girl get extra points for being russia or what? I'm not hating on her, though.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Kim Yuna's performance was really beautiful, i didn't see the russian's one but I saw she fell. I don't understand how she can have such a high score when Kim Yuna didn't do any fault and have a lower one. It's the jugdes' fault tho, it's stupid to blame that russian girl.

    ReplyDelete
  80. lol please. anyone who knows a thing or two about how skating works would know she was severely underscored. looking at the scorecard isn't enough because the scores themselves can be manipulated. to give you the difference in Yuna's 2010 gold performance and this year's gold winner, look at this:

    http://i1.ruliweb.daumcdn.net/uf/image/U01/ruliweb/530668F350308E0019

    http://i1.ruliweb.daumcdn.net/uf/image/U01/ruliweb/530668FE505E23000E

    the gold winner (idek her name) this year was less than a point away from beating yuna's 2010 perf (1st gif), like what kind of bullshit is that

    ReplyDelete
  81. Saw this on reddit:

    Same moves, very similar scores.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I was cheering for Carolina, but seriously Yuna deserved the gold, her performance was almost perfect

    ReplyDelete
  83. the article only mentions 2 russians and "other eastern europeans". this isn't the 80's, don't lump the "soviets" together

    ReplyDelete
  84. Kim Yuna won gold...fuck what anybody says.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Jury based sports....damn...

    ReplyDelete
  86. this kind of shit has happened to my country's wrestlers, they cheated right in front of our eyes......unfair treatment toward people who are not from USA OR EUROPE

    ReplyDelete
  87. but I can't imagine that the reaction of the Korean spectators when Russian athletes are taking part in their events will be highly positive

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think so too, and that's so unfair to the Russian skater T_T

    ReplyDelete
  89. this is karma for what korea did to italy now koreans know how to be treated unfairly.

    ReplyDelete
  90. 1. [+2,800, -34] I will never forget this you Russian f*ckers.



    I can imagine how Russians who like kpop and love Korea feel about this.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I was shocked, the commentators were shocked!! Yuna never faltered once on any jumps but Adelina was far from perfect (tripped). I just don't get how a flawless performance can lose to one with (minor) errors. Still congrats to Adelina, she's only 17 and doesn't deserve the hate.

    Meanwhile, did you see Asada Mao, What a comeback!!!! one of the most exciting moments during the Olympics. I CRIED.

    ReplyDelete
  92. what a naive kid....sport world is not as clean as u think,

    ReplyDelete
  93. Yuna got absolutely screwed and deserves to go down as a repeat champ like Witt...


    ...but it's not like every country doesn't have Olympic history with BS.


    Roy Jones Jr. still waiting for that 1988 Seoul gold medal.

    ReplyDelete
  94. yess, i don't understand why they choose lipnitskaya for the team event, all that media attention was too much for her :\

    ReplyDelete
  95. can anyone link me the performances?

    ReplyDelete
  96. ooooh yo tambien soy española! xD
    hahhahah yeah I didnt know about that till they told me and when i searched i was like really? anyways the next winter olympics are held in S.K let's see what happens there xD

    ReplyDelete
  97. lol im not hating on her, i am blaming the jury though

    ReplyDelete
  98. Agreed! If Koreans are known for being Nationalist, then Russia way miles Nationalist than any country because didn't took part in the U.N because they can stand with their! good point of view there! Sad reality, that's how Asian suffer in other western countries or even worst!!!

    ReplyDelete
  99. The US-RUSSIA judging pact was real in figure skating yet deluded Russians and Americans are the only ones denying it. Poor yuna kim and tessa and scott.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I will support you Queen Yuna!!♥♥

    ReplyDelete
  101. And so isn't the government but we don't rebel and we can't really do anything about it. It was the judges choice and vote.

    ReplyDelete
  102. why what? korea once treated italy unfairly and karma is a bitch.

    ReplyDelete
  103. critizicing the performance of a professional skater =/= hating

    ReplyDelete
  104. lmao yes because now only russia decides this stuff?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Yuna was robbed, she did her performance perfectly with no flaws. Adelina's performance was difficult and impressive for her age but she still messed up. So I'm not understanding how a flawless performance comes second to a performance with a few defects.

    ReplyDelete
  106. The fact that this year's gold winner did their jumps like this http://cdn.theatlantic.com/newsroom/img/posts/2014/02/2014_02_20_14_15_34/5e0be99f9.gif and was only 1 point away from Yuna's in 2010 who had jumps like this http://i1.ruliweb.daumcdn.net/uf/image/U01/ruliweb/530668F350308E0019

    ReplyDelete
  107. It seems like no matter how hard non russian/non american figure skaters try they always get the short end of the stick

    ReplyDelete
  108. but still. if the fucking judges had a brain, they'd better know that people are watching this and there are not the only one who knows how to judge figure skating. srsly and this is being broadcasted worldwide.



    this is so disappointing. i am not surprised if this is corrupted. Russia was pretty mad at Plushenko withdrawing from the man figure skating. but dude, his injury opened again he wasn't even SUPPOSED to be competing but he did it to help Russia win gold for team event. but this. the younger girl was definitely cracking under pressure, which im not surprised since its her first olympics and shes 17 years old only but this desperate act to "restore" Russia's dominance in figure skating... fk the olympics.

    ReplyDelete
  109. But when? What happened?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Doesn't matter how hard they were if she's sloppy. She shouldn't even have gotten bronze. She made mistakes both in her short program and free skating performances and she got those scores? So close to the world record? 5 points ahead of Yuna, 7 points ahead of Carolina and especially Mao Asada who gave one of her best performance ever and without a doubt the best performance of the night? No fucking way.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Kim Yuna has been successful and on top for years though, also don't forget Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan too

    ReplyDelete
  114. Why is she retiring so young? I knew she began at a very young age. Or is this common for figure skating? I don't know very much of the timeline of a figure skater's career.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Those netizens aren't criticizing the performance, rather Adelina.

    ReplyDelete
  116. That person was talking about the 2002 World Cup

    ReplyDelete
  117. I can only find kim yuna's full performance. http://on.fb.me/1hbZI00

    ReplyDelete
  118. I was so so so upset w the score. I love her so much she doesn't deserve these points at all. But she was so graceful and poised and carried herself w so much class.

    Thank you Yuna yaaaa! You were flawless in the short and long program, like an angel on ice. Long live the Queen.

    ReplyDelete
  119. way above Won Bin. She's internationally lauded as one of the best figure skaters of this generation.

    ReplyDelete
  120. what kind of mentality is that?two wrongs don't make a right

    ReplyDelete
  121. if you guys watched from yesterday, you probably knew the fix was in after the short program scores. only redeeming thing for me was me laughing at us figure skating and nbc for trying to make ashley wagner and gracie gold happen and not getting any medal.

    ReplyDelete
  122. ok thank you! I can't seem to find Adelina's anywhere...

    ReplyDelete

  126. I suspect a gold medal drought in figure skating for russia in 2018.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Because she already did these Olympics basically for her country more than herself it seemed. She doesn't have anything to prove.


    She's been more relieved after competition than happy. Carrying around the weight of a country must get old extremely fast.


    Happy she gets to relax now and do whatever being a superstar anyway.

  128. I would understand if people were politely criticizing the performance, but I can feel the rage of the netizens here in the opposite side of the world.

  129. this is so disappointing. i am not surprised if this is corrupted.
    Russia was pretty mad at Plushenko withdrawing from the man figure
    skating. but dude, his injury opened again he wasn't even SUPPOSED to be
    competing but he did it to help Russia win gold for team event. but
    this. the younger girl was definitely cracking under pressure, which im
    not surprised since its her first olympics and shes 17 years old only
    but this desperate act to "restore" Russia's dominance in figure
    skating... fk the olympics.

  130. I know. It's a shame to see the blame pinned on her instead D:

    ReplyDelete
  131. She can go for another Olympics, but usually, skaters retire in their mid-20s or so. There's only so much the body can take. Their training is intense.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I'm not sure what any of that has to do with my comment. feel free to bash the judges but calling a 17 yr old a "bitch" is unnecessary.

    ReplyDelete
  133. calling her bitch isn't criticizing her performance

    ReplyDelete
  134. "Russia had better be prepared to have their asses handed back to them."


    I don't think this is the mindset we should be working on. It's the Olympics. It's unfortunate an unfair score was given but this whole thing shouldn't be about revenge.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I mean, it's not a biiig deal, just you're used to hearing it said correctly then it's a little jarring to hear it mispronounced all the time. Especially when the correct pronunciation isn't that hard.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Yeah, she's applying for a position that she's been hoping for a long time. I wish her best in the decisions she makes :) Even though its sad that she's retiring.

    ReplyDelete
  137. How...seriously how did she win gold medal..../smg

    ReplyDelete
  138. They can be mad at the judges, but calling the russian girl a b*tch and blaming her that was uncalled

    ReplyDelete
  139. I get that Adelina Sotnikova had harder jumps but it wasn't executed right. And it was like the judges overscored her. I guess it's because she has home court advantage.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Both my favs and Yuzuru Hanyu already won gold last week like a boss, and I waited for Yuna to win her gold this week. But then shady judges and Russia robbed her the gold.... Fuuu I´m not happy, going to be pissed off for weeks...

    ReplyDelete
  141. so you basically confirm my point that it's not all russians. slovakia, estonia, ukraine are the only other eastern europeans here and lmao if u think their interest align just because they're former soviet states

    ReplyDelete
  142. But does that give them any other right to throw such insulting words at the girl (and the nation)? If they want to yell at someone, "blame" the jury because it was /them/ who gave those scores in the first place.

    ReplyDelete
  143. ffs this is PURE corruption. Russia TOO desperate... Plushenko withdrawing the men competition made them really mad. That's why they had to make someone win the women competition and the younger girl who was supposed to win fell too much and cracked under pressure (shes 17 yo) . That's why they take someone who didnt fell but still a WHOLE different lvl from Yuna. Anyone who has basic sense can tell, unless you are Russian and too delusional to admit it

    ReplyDelete
  144. Who cares? I'm not saying it is "right" but it isn't anything worth caring about since every country butchers the names of people from countries they aren't from. It's just how the world works.

    ReplyDelete
  145. So what are her plans afterwards? I'm curious to know since figure skating pretty much consumes most of your time and dedication. Did she mention any aspirations when she announced her retirement?

    ReplyDelete
  146. Yuna is my queen, but I really teared up and cried with Mao after her performance. Such a beautiful and stunning farewell performance and comeback. Just so sad she got so underscored as well. Only female who can do tripple axel and do it flawless.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I understand what you're saying. People are damn and/or refuse to do a tad bit of research. I guess I'm just numb to it.

    ReplyDelete
  148. 4. [+54, -0] I just saw the scene of them takin ga picture... and Kim Yuna was unknowingly standing in the middle until she realized and moved aside. But that Russian b*tch didn't react at all even while Kim Yuna was in the middle... Yeah, I'm sure even she realizes that she doesn't deserve that spot.



    She did nothing wrong, the judges did... calling her Russian bitch is so uncalled for.

    ReplyDelete
  149. meant as, judges being selfish and think that nothing will happen after giving a gold to a skater who is good but doesnt deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Bronze at best for Russian. Yuna and Kostner did a better skate for me in second day.
    Not a strange thing though, happen all the time when home nation athlete get a decision in their favour especially event like this at multievent sports competition.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Ok good for you but that's not how it works. There's a jury for a reason, there are rules, points to be counted and taken out for mistakes and sloppiness. Adelina made mistakes and was sloppy, both in her SP and FS and she didn't deserve any of the scores she got. She should have gotten bronze max. Not even talking about Yuna, for the FS Carolina was flawless and Mao Asada's FS was one of the best ever yet Adelina who was far from that (sloppy landings including a big mistake on one) was 7 points ahead of both of them? So close to the world record?

    ReplyDelete
  152. I feel bad for the Russian girl I mean it might be her 1st gold medal but I don't think she's really happy about it since she didn't get it with her own talent and abilities. ( I'm not hating on her but it's like these sajaegi cases where I'm not sure if these idols can be truly about their win when it wasn't a fair win)

    ReplyDelete
  153. no offense, but what does age have to do with anything in calling someone a bitch lmao

    ReplyDelete
  154. these comments from Korean netizens make me feel depressed
    and some comments here, on NB too

    ReplyDelete
  155. First of all, not everyone who supports Yuna is a koreaboo. Second, there has to be something fishy going on when even all these figure skating experts are raising eyebrows. When I was watching, the commentators were shocked at how low Yuna's short program score was. They also didn't agree with how high Adelina's component scores were. Adelina may have beat Yuna in the technical category, but there's no way their component scores should have been so close within one another.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Skating is not only about landing your jumps, its about the performance, the smoothness, the little details from the tip of your fingers to your facial expression, to the choreography. Even if your moves are hard, if you cannot transition them properly, points are taken off. Plus her technique was NOT perfect, and Yuna achieved EVERYTHING perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  157. tell that to plyushchenko, i've heard that he wants to return for 2018 olympics *horror*

    ReplyDelete
  158. wow, that looks terrible.... you can see on her face that she knows she messed up, yet she still won GOLD? smh

    ReplyDelete
  159. Well apparently they do if they can just hand a medal to their skater while shafting the superior skater.

    Usually past Olympians become mentors or coaches for future Olympians. She'll probably also start getting surgery/treatment from all the past injuries she couldn't do because the fear that getting surgery in the middle of your career will affect your pace.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Do you have the links for both of them? I don't know where to watch Sochi... and I've been looking for YT videos but I don't even know how to search for the ones I'm looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  162. She's skating an exhibition in Korea after this, but after that I'm guessing she's doing whatever she wants for once. :o


    Probably do those skating tours and another 100 commercials and dive into her vault of money?

    ReplyDelete
  163. It should have been:
    Gold: Kim Yuna- South Korea(The Republic of Korea)
    Silver: Carolina Kostner - Italy
    Bronze: Adelina Sotnikova - Russia

    I call complete and total bullshit on Sotnikova's scores. And if Mao Asada would have skated better in her short program she would have gotten gold or silver. Such bullshit. The only reason she was scored that high was because the stands were filled with Russians and she didn't fall on her ass. She bobbled and she got a higher score than Mao Asada, Kim Yuna, and Carolina Kostner who all had cleaner programs.

  164. omg lol

  165. the referee wasn't korean tho. It was either supposed to be Bryon Moreno or FIFA.

  166. I was talking about the rigged timer with the fencer

  167. Spain and Argentina too

    ReplyDelete
  168. You are reading English translations here. In Korean, it doesn't sound as strong as 'bitch' in English. It's kind of like 'wench'. Friends or family members casually use that word in Korean. Don't dwell on one word when you read translations.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Is she taking part at the Worlds next month? I really hope she does.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Same with this case

  171. This version is better. :o

  172. Koreans were insulting and making fun of 15 years old Yulia too.

    ReplyDelete
  173. The biggest joke was adelina's pcs. and how does having one more triple make up for poor execution?

    ReplyDelete
  174. omgg i don't like him but that was iconic

    ReplyDelete
  175. I can't believe that someone who bobbled during her program got a higher score than 3 perfectly exactitude programs. TBH Carolina Kostner had a far better performance than her.

    ReplyDelete
  176. She's the real winner ...
    classy and elegant
    Thank you Kim Yuna
    TT

    ReplyDelete
  177. Plushi needs to give up but he was trully the best.

    ReplyDelete
  178. im just so proud of kim yuna. having to carry such a heavy weight on her shoulders is not a joke. she did well. yes, i still believe she should've won gold, but she will always be #1 no matter what. im also amazed at how she can handle all the pressure!

    ReplyDelete
  179. "Worth mentioning that South Korea and Russia are in the same World Cup group this summer."



    CRUSH

    ReplyDelete
  180. I wonder how the 11 to 15 year old South Korean skaters are doing. Those are some of the ones we need to have an eye on.

    ReplyDelete
  181. yall acting like this is the end of the world. what the hell did that yuna girl lose? she got silver medal! she ain't no god bc no one is... accept the results like adults

    ReplyDelete
  182. and she deserved the hell out of it. too bad Russians were too desperate to "restore" their dominance

    ReplyDelete
  183. Yulia's 15 so even worse. And look at her scores despite her 2 hard falls..

    ReplyDelete
  184. I think she announced today that she wont be taking part in the Worlds next month.

    ReplyDelete
  185. There's no need to feel depressed over that...be more depressed over how the judges gave Sotnikova's performance a score so close to Yuna's perfect Vancouver FS.......
