  •   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

English translations of Yuna’s interview at Doha Goals Forum

Yuna Kim, Special Olympics ambassador, spoke to a crowd of about 700 inside the Marriott Hotel Monday for the Doha GOALS Forum.

By Kim Chul-soo

South Korean figure skating queen Kim Yuna, in Los Angeles as a Special Olympics ambassador, held a talk in front of a crowd of about 700 inside the Marriott Hotel Monday as a part of the Doha GOALS Forum. Below is a Q&A with the world champion.

You’re in Los Angeles as a Special Olympics ambassador.

As a fellow athlete, I think it’s great to see those with disabilities cooperating with athletes from other countries through sports and working hard to achieve personal goals. I’ve had the honor of experiencing the opening and closing ceremonies of two summer Olympics games. I think it’s invaluable that athletes with disabilities can also experience moments like that, moments that not everyone has had.

Is there a moment you remember during your days as an active figure skater?

The moment I entered the Olympics for the first time is most memorable. I remember all the other competitions afterwards too, but it was a special feeling when I won the 2009 World Championship in Los Angeles that I didn’t feel even at the Olympics. I think every moment in every competition is important and valuable.

The 2018 Winter Olympics are going to be held in PyeongChang. What’s the meaning there?

For reasons including its natural environment, it’s been difficult for Korea to host the winter Olympics. For a country in which most of the winter sports have no popularity to host the winter games is a huge honor. I’m proud to be able to experience seeing my country host the Olympics, a dream for every athlete. Although I have no chance of entering the 2018 games, I’m content with being able to watch the Olympics. I hope the winter Olympics becomes a chance for Korea to receive attention from a lot of people.

You’ve shown interest in giving to charity through helping children after earthquakes in Haiti and in Japan.

I want to continue helping children have dreams and hopes. Even aside from the Special Olympics athletes, I want children who have potential and who are watching the games to form new dreams and goals.

You acted as an instructor at the Special Olympics World Games in PyeongChang two years ago. What were some challenges?

There were no challenges. The athletes were bright, and had so much passion for figure skating. Aside from results, I really liked seeing them developing toward their goals and being happy. I hope to have more chances like that one.

Do you think Special Olympics athletes are in need of anything in particular?

I think the environment is important for them, but I think before all of that, what’s most needed is the interest of people. Although it might be difficult to appeal to people in a short amount of time to be considerate toward disabled athletes, I’m going to work over time to deliver these kinds of messages.

What is your opinion of sports stars who take on roles as social advocates after retirement?

I believe that successful people in any field, including sports, have the ability to deliver a virus of positivity and optimism to people. This is definitely an opportunity. I’m going to work even harder, too, to share my story and important messages with others.

What are your upcoming plans?

Right now, I’m carrying out my duties as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and as an ambassador for the Special Olympics.

What kind of worldwide influence do you think you can have?

I’m not playing a huge role. Personally, it’s an honor to help others with what I have, and I hope more people gain interest in the volunteer work I’m doing.

Any advice for young athletes with disabilities?

I watched a Special Olympics basketball game yesterday, and I felt no difference between the disabled and the others. Seeing both sides become upset and angry during the game was a confirmation of equality in sports. I was touched seeing the disabled athletes focus so much during the match.

There must have been many moments during your career in which you wanted to give up. What kinds of lessons did you learn during the process of overcoming them?

I was a figure skater for 18 years, and looking back, 80 to 90 percent of that time is comprised of memories of struggle. Happy moments and victories make up only a small part of my memories. I think I worked hard for those small happy moments. Even aside from sports, there cannot be success without hardship and suffering in everyday life. I think success is overcoming those difficult moments.

Do you have last words for your fans and for the Special Olympics team?

It’s an honor for me just to be here as an ambassador for the games. I was deeply touched to see so many people genuinely cheering on the athletes here. I hope the athletes can go back home unharmed until the end and with good experiences, and I ask for support and interest.

Kim Yu-na is participating on the sideline of the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles. The Special Olympics, a sporting event for people with intellectual abilities, is in its 14th year and will run until Sunday. 

Kim was at the opening ceremony at the Memorial Coliseum on Saturday and will be present at the Unified Sports Experience hosted by the organizing committee on Monday. 

The experience event, where a sports star teams up with a participating athlete to play various games, is designed to help "foster a relationship of respect, acceptance and camaraderie among all participants." 

Kim will play a badminton match at the experience event. She will also give a speech about her life as a figure skater to the Doha GOALS Forum. 

Other speakers include Michael Phelps of the U.S. who won the most Olympic swimming medals — 18 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals — and Carl Lewis of the U.S. who won 9 Olympic gold medals in track and field.

Meanwhile, over 7,200 athletes with intellectual disabilities and more than 62,000 spectators celebrated the opening of the Games on Saturday.  Read more from source link below:
