In the Yuna Talks

To. Yuna

  •   Yuna, thank you so much. I think I will re-live your entire life and journey as a skater for so many times in the future to inspire me. It is such a beautiful memory to watch your competition as a fan.
  •   Dear. Yuna Hi There! My name is Jonh Joseph Villaruel from Southeast Asia Philippines. Although the gold medal is in the hands of Adelina Sotnikova, it will never be for a long time. Because it was not the result of hard work but of politics in figure skating. What makes you, Kim Yuna, above Adelina Sotnikova is that whether you have that gold medal or not you will always be the “Ice Queen” and that “Crown” is solely yours. They will have to abolish the figure skating world before they could take away everything. As long as there is figure…
  •   Hi there Kim Yuna! My name is Jonh Joseph Villaruel from Philippines. My first name is really spelled this way “Jonh”. It was a typographical error in my birth certificate. At first I really hate my name because I know its misspelled. So what I did during my academic years, I would always spell my first name as “John” to make it right. However, when I was in college and I was already a graduating student at that those times, I just simply discovered that it was expensive to legally re-arrange my name. Since my family did not have enough…
  •   Dear Yuna, i pray that you continue to stay strong in everything that you do. May you find yet another dream that you can put your heart and soul into. I am sorry that there are evil people in the world who are so selfish, corrupt and have zero morals, who would do anything in their power to get what they want. Just remember, there is a God in heaven and HE SEES ALL.
  •   HE sees the good and evil in everyone, so although it may be painful and difficult, rest in the fact that there will be a day of reckoning for all of us. I have been your fan for several years now, and as you can probably tell, i am more upset with all of this than you are. And that is one of the things that makes you the most admirable among so many others.
  •   You have such a good heart and that is the BEST part of you. Nurture that heart coz that is what REALLY matters. Continue to not hold any bitterness towards anyone. Just leave that to us, fans… hahaha.. Stay as loving, kind, humble, meek and compassionate as you are, because in the end Yuna, that is all we will be accounted for.
  •   Thank you for staying strong and courageous throughout this whole journey. To the very end, you acted like the TRUE CHAMPION that you are. You are undeniably the best role figure any aspiring athlete could have. May you continue to shine in everything that you put mind into. We will always be here behind you, backing you up in prayers and support in any way we can. All the best, our dear Yuna. You will always be loved. – smitten

Figure Skating: Leadership Crisis

Recently the ISU congress rejected a proposal, to many peoples disappointment, of abolishment of judge's anonymity.

The latest action by the ISU is considered as a total disregard of the international outrage to its corruption, only demonstrating how the ISU as a sport organization was isolated, within its own old feudalism, from the rest of figure skating world.

But even if the ISU had accepted the proposal, it wouldn't have amounted to much. It wouldn't change the direction of the ISU and its dictatorship turning a deaf ear to the voice of figure skating communities.

It wouldn't matter whether the ISU voted in favor of abolishment of judges' anonymity or against it, unless the entire leadership was replaced. In fact, under 6.0 system, judges used to openly commit fraud. Judging scandal was a perennial companion to the sport. Never has the sport been free from one scandal or another.

Two things make Sochi Olympics unique. First, it was the ISU leadership that was reponsible for the fraud. Second, it was premeditated and systematically devised for a group of judges in Sochi to destroy the judging system itself by inventing bogus GOE and bogus PCS.

In 2013 through 2014, the ISU developed a scheme in which they shamelessly advocated Julia Lipnitskaia by dumping the established COP system to the sea of arbitrarism. Based on that set-up, they tried to sell skaters of their choice.

For the ISU it was a foolproof, because the whole show had been on through the Grand Prix. So they thought they could get away with Sochi showdown. But it didn't cut. It only shows how their plot was based on quicksand.

That whole script seems good enough to make everything look legitimate but casting the washed-up actors in a show from pro-Soviet judges' sabotage of old time may not.

Despite numerous scandals in the past, the sport itself has been resilient, thriving due to its idiosyncratic affinity to art. Figure skating dramatically evolved thanks to great skaters whose vision presaged the future and their timeless contribution paved the way of the sport and ultimately decided the sport as we know it today.

What sets Sochi Scandal apart from other scandals is the ISU leadership's involvement and its systematic deception. In the past, when the international politics played dirty , it was an individual judge or judges that were politically motivated.

Of course, judges involved in Sochi are too politically oriented in that they are like minded with an agenda that Russian should rule the ladies figure skating in post Kim, but under the COP system well established in Kim's tenure, their favorites were lacking of the kind of quality that the point number they earned should have reflected, that which viewers and spectators were accustomed to.

The future of figure skating looks bleak, not because the ISU didn't sanction the proposal intended for judging accountability but because the ISU shows no sign of self-reformation as long as Ottavio Cinquanta remains in his seat.

Sochi Scandal unequivocally deprived the sport of its most needed standards that could keep skaters up in their endeavor to excel. Unless we see another star rise to revive the sport from a state of coma, it is difficult to tell what will become of the sport in the years to come.
