The article describes her performance
“There is so much more to her, though. Her edge quality is so high; she carves the ice like a calligrapher. All of her jumps were landed to crescendos in the music, making the music as much a part of her program as any other element. Her footwork was exquisite, and she skated with the elegance of a queen throughout her “Scheherazade” program.”
“The audience was on its feet for the last 15 seconds of her program, knowing it had seen something truly special for a second straight night. Her only flaws were popping a triple salchow and not getting credit for her final spin because it didn’t meet the criteria. But those were forgotten by the time her magical performance was over.”
“This is my third world championships, and the last two I was really regretful I was not able to do well”, “Winning the world championships was my dream and I did it,” Yuna said
“NOW, I plan to practice for the Olympics.”
