2011 World Figure skating Champs (part 2)

Here's a continuation of my previous post, this time featuring Yuna's performance for the long program category of the 2011 World Figure skating championships held at Moscow last week.

At the end you will see Yuna's final scores in which she ends up in 2nd place behind Miki Ando by only 1 point.While I wish Yuna had won Gold instead of Silver, I'm not too bummed that Miki won. I actually admire Miki, who really improved herself after a couple of seasons of falling behind in competitions; Miki definitely worked hard and stepped it up this year by becoming both Japanese Champion and World Champion. I think both Yuna and Miki deserve a lot of congratulations. As for the bronze medalist, Caroline Kostner of Italy...I personally think she got lucky to be in 3rd, kinda like how she got lucky to come in 2nd at the 2011 Euro Champs. Yuna and Miki's competition was so intense that there's barely a point between them....while Caroline trailed far behind at almost 11 points to separate her and Yuna. I really dont get Caroline's appeal, but maybe its just me. She makes the weirdest facial expressions, it just so awkward to watch.

Anyways, enough babbling from me, enjoy Yuna's performance below, entitled "Homage to Korea" which features traditional Korean music. I gotta say, I'm in love with her music, very original and unique. I've been getting tired of the same ol' classical music they play in skating competitions so Yuna's music is a breath of fresh air!
