The world dubbed her a skating immortality, but I swear she showed raw vulnerability on ice this morning. On potentially tense occasions, I'll put on minimal makeup to conceal the nervous spell I'm under, so it really makes me wonder if Kim Yuna did so for the same reason while compensating the move with her beautiful crystal clear skin. She skated with an unusually light pinch of flirtation, and subtly reserved extensions too. My heart simply pounded harder as I watched her...
But she didn't disappoint everyone who pinned that mammoth hope on her. I guess the world must have read by now 19 year-old Kim Yuna is a new figure-skating golden legend. If there had been any ounce of insecurity, that didn't stop her from leaping her iconic humongous jumps with no qualms, like she'll see no tomorrow. There was so much bravery behind that mad speed and fierce torque. Will I ever see such fearless dynamics in another female skater again?
Don't forget, this bold athlete is just a girl, once a nobody in this sport said to be heavily shadowed by favouritism. Kim Yuna spinned around and changed literally everything in this field with her steadfast will. She is babe seabiscuit that falls far from immortality, a true blue skating royal who has surmounted the podium for a braver gold.
The showdown this year is definitely nothing like a one man show, most skaters have done themselves proud! Silver medalist Asada Mao performed beautifully despite immense pressure, she's one tremendously great skater I love too! I cried after Joannie Rochette finished her moment. Rochette's mother must have carried the bronze medalist, as Rochette made that beautiful sacrifice to her deceased mom who passed away few days before the competition. Nobody can ask for more from this stage of premium-quality, so...
- In what manner should I be anticipating the next Winter Olympics? Are we seeing bigger skaters coming out? ( Fingers drumming... )
- Now that Kim Yuna has acquired the world's best, will she very well retire and leave her worldwide fans forlorn and heartbroken? ( Deeeeeeeep inhale... )
I really hope that I get to write about my super-heroine again.
