It's every time Japanese government apologize, then the Koreans and the mainland Chinese wants another set of apology. It's like the Duracell battery, they go on and on and on!!

70 years later, they are still going on and on and on about World War 2.

They really need a life.

The Imperial Japanese were also bad to the Vietnamese, Thai and other Asians, but you don't see then asking the present day Japanese to apologize for what happened over 70 years ago.

President Park Geun-Hye,

I am truly sorry for what had happened over 70 years ago when your people accuse my ancestors of wartime sex slave apology. My ancestors are dead now and if they lived, they'd be over 100 years old.

For 35 years, Korea was Japanese colony from 1910-1945.

Even though daughters of Japanese farmers were also sold to prostitution when they were unable to pay the land debt during the Great Depression, they don't blame the Japan for this issue. I wonder whether or not the Korean families from a wealthy background had to be forced into prostitution?

This was also common for poor Japanese families to sell their daughters for prostitution in order to pay off their debt.

I don't know if being Korean has anything to do with being sold to prostitution?

But I am truly sorry for what happened over 70 years ago, even though I was not born during that time.

Please forgive me.

I'll be your best friend!!!

Regards,

Koji

No wonder Yuna's retiring. I don't blame her. Seeing how the people in her nation behaves, by trashing into Sotnikova's facebook. It's a bit childish.

Dear Sons of Mao,

I'm sorry for the atrocities my ancestors have caused your ancestors.

I don't have any excuses for the actions of my dead ancestors whom I never met.

Please forgive me for what my ancestors have done.

I'll be your best friend.

OK, now we are officially friends.

Yours Truly,

Koji

toshiko that is exactly my point!!

I know why the Communist Chinese government is doing this. It's pretty simple, instead of having people turning against their own government. By blaming everything on the Japanese, they can have their own people turning on them.

They don't want another Tiananmen Square so the Communist government is pointing their fingers on the Japanese. As you know, ordinary Chinese people are still living under slave labor, while the rich and the government gets super rich, they blame everything on the Japanese.

Chinese Communist government is always looking for some sort of excuse for this anti-human rights cause. So they brainwash the uneducated and blame everything on the Japanese.

Hideki Tojo might be responsible for the death of 5 million people, but that number is the total of all war deaths, not just the Chinese, but Koreans, Americans, British and his own people.

Yes, that is a huge number. I don't know why the Chinese Communist government never talks about their founding father Mao Zedong who makes Joseph Stalin look like a saint. Mao is responsible for the death between 30-60 million people. That is 10 times more than Hitler or Tojo.

My favorite Chinese propaganda was when a Chinese student told me how Shinzo Abe is building up the Japanese military defense force so they can invade China??? Are you kidding me?? They were unsuccessful to conquer China 70 years ago even thought their technology is far advance to the Chinese, and they plan to invade a country who has more money than Japan today??

This is the Communist Chinese for you, instead of having a repeat of the Tiananmen Square almost 30 years ago. They are blaming the Japanese so the people can start trashing on the Japanese instead of their own government.

People's Republic of China might be the 2nd wealthiest nation in the world, but they will never be civilized.

Who can the Chinese sue?? Most of these people who committed the crime are either dead or 100 years old

Silver medal is a defeat to the Koreans, who claims that a fix is on by Putin and the judges.

Who came in 16th place?

Posted in: Asada wavering on retirement; says Mori's comments didn't bother her See in context

Mao is a young beautiful girl with full of bright future.

Mori is an old fart waiting to croak.

No point for a young beautiful girl to waste her energy on an old useless fart!!

I hope Mao will go for 2018, and pull off a Kostner or even better. Kostner was about to give up too, until she finally won a bronze.

My honest opinion is that if Mao really wants a gold, then I think she needs to train abroad so she doesn't have to put up with all the distraction. When Yuna won the gold, she was properly coached and she didn't have the distraction in Canada unlike what she has to deal with in Korea.

If she retires, that's fine too. As long as she knows that everyone supports her no matter what her decision is.

Patricia Lockwood Figure Skating much like Gymnastics are based on the scores coming from the judges. It's not who ran the fastest or jumped the furthest of lift the heaviest.

The judges are human and they make mistakes.

Yuna Kim looked like she skated better, but how do I know? I never skated before. I can't skate, but at least I admit it. The best people to give the best commentators are the ones who have skated before and how the technical points work. According to a gold medalist like Tara Lipinski and another figure skater like Johnny Weir, they went in depth on why Sotnikova won. So I was convinced that Adelina Sotnikova is the gold medalist.

The only thing I questioned the judges were the inflated points. Other than that, I'm fine with the result.

Carolee Thumma I couldn't have agreed more.

Yuna did skate beautifully so people got a bit carried away from the difficulty of her program.

I relied on what Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir said on their analysis. Adelina Sotnikova skated a much more difficult program than Yuna. If Sotnikova fell, then the gold is Yuna's. She didn't fall so it was her gold to lose.

Maybe the scores were a bit high. Not just Adelina Sotnikova, but Yuna Kim and Kostner's scores were a bit inflated as well.

I started to show more respect for Yuna Kim in the way she handled her defeat.

I am not a fan of Adelina Sotnikova. I didn't even know who she was until she won the gold. Most gold medalist are usually the ones you least expect. Much like Shizuka Arakawa.

toshiko don't worry about Mori. You see why his term as PM was so short. He's a grumpy old fart. He isn't going to be the JOC Chairman much longer anyway.

If Mori wanted Mao Asada to win gold, then why don't he find a way to invest in her training much like the Korean government with their athletes? Or help Mao find more sponsorships so she can train abroad, like Canada? Otherwise, my message to Mori, "Shut up!"

Did PM Shinzo Abe say this? No!!

Just a grumpy old man who happens to be the chairman of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Does't matter, his life will expire before the 2020 games.

Pukey2 Why would Johnny Weir suck up to Russia when he is a very good friend of Yuna Kim? Up to the point that rumors were spreading around about them dating during the Vancouver Olympics? Obviously the rumors aren't true since we know that Johnny Weir came out.

Like I said, I thought Mao skated the best free program, but it didn't matter she was already out of it. Yes, the points were a bit inflated. Not only Sotnikova, but Yuna Kim and Kostners as well. None of their program was anything near Yuna Kim's Vancouver performance. Actually none of their performance were as good as Mao Asada's Vancouver performance, but somehow they all scored over 216.

If there was a fix, I'm pretty sure they had it setup for Lipinskaia not Sotnikova, because no one expected Sotnikova to even compete for the medal. Either way Lipinskaia didn't win gold or any medal and Sotnikova did. Sotnikova was more like Shizuka Arakawa. No one expected them to win so there wasn't much pressure.

I feel bad for Yuna Kim, but I give her much more respect in the way she handled her defeat.

Why can't the majority of the Korean people accept this?

Russia thinks Sotnikova won, but the world knows that Yuna Kim is the real winner?

What is their meaning of the world? Koreans? Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir thought Sotnikova deserved the gold. Do they represent Russia?

I'm surprised the Koreans haven't flooded the Russian Olympic Committee server. Maybe it's because they can't read Russian so they don't bother.

If Russian used Hangul or the alphabet, I'm pretty sure the hate mails would be flooding to Sotnikova.

Do anyone see Yuna Kim blaming the judges for her loss? No!!

It's too bad that the majority of the Korean nation acting like a whining babies over the scores. So what do they do, they crash the Change.org server and demand the scores?? 10-years ago, they did the same thing by crashing the USOC server, because Apollo Ohno received over 100,000 hate mails coming from Korea? Then in the World Cup 2002, they were still putting up big signs of anti-Apollo Ohno, when Korea played the US. The funny thing was, most Americans didn't even know who Apollo Ohno was. By the way, they cheated against Spain in the 2002 World Cup.

If the Russians did cheat, are the Koreans any different?? Isn't that hypocrisy?

Korea will host the next Olympics, don't be surprised if they cheat, because it's in their nature. They did in Seoul Olympics in 88 and the World Cup in 2002.

technosphere

Katarina Witt skated in the 80's and she even tried to skate in the 94 games and realized that her style of skating would not score well in the 90's or the 21st Century.

Yeah, if Yuna Kim skated 20-30 years ago, she would have won the gold. I'm still baffled about why Mao Asada's score would only get her a bronze if she did not fall in the SP? No other female skaters can do a triple axel, why her score was only the 3rd best in the Free Program? Then again, I'm not a Figure Skating expert so what can I say?

By listening to NBC commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir who are experts in figure skating. None of them complained about the scoring. They both said that Sotnikova's program is much more difficult compared to Yuna Kim. I personally thought Yuna Kim looked better skating, but I will trust what Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir's word and none of them thought the scoring was judgmental. The only complaint they had was the 5 point gap, but both commentators said Sotnikova skated better.

I had a feeling that one of the Russian skater will win the gold, but I believed it was Julia Lipnitskaia. She fell and was out of the picture. I never thought it would be Adelina Sotnikova to win the gold. I knew once the score was close in the short program, it was pretty much over and it was Sotnikova's to lose. She didn't falter and her program was considered more difficult than Yuna's so she deserved the gold.

I was not a Yuna Kim fan until she handled her loss with class. It's too bad that the majority of the Korean people are acting like rotten immature kids about it. No wonder the people are laughing at Koreans immaturity. If Yuna Kim can handle her loss with class, why can't the Korean people?

You are right technosphere what goes around comes around. Koreans act like they are a victim of foul play, but did they forget what they did back in Seoul. One was obvious when Roy Jones Jr. beat the cr@p out of Park Si Hun and even he admitted he lost to Roy Jones, but the KOC bribed the 3 judges. I'm not a boxing expert, but it was obvious that Roy Jones owned that fight. Then another incident happened with Anthony Hembrick when he was supposed to fight a Korean fighter back in Seoul 88, but somehow the Korean shuttle driver got lost and Hembrick was unable to make it to the match on time and the Korean fighter won by disqualification. Talk about dirty tactics.

Koreans have no rights to criticize others when they were cheating big time in Seoul. Unfortunately, it's too bad that Yuna Kim wasn't born when this happened, but who said life is fair?

There is no such thing as a perfect system.

I'm pretty sure IOC will be careful, because it's like drug testing. They always find new ways to improve and get better.

When the KOC cheated extremely bad during the Seoul Olympics in 1988. They made many changes to make the system better in boxing. The 3 judges who selected Park Si Hun over Roy Jones Jr., they all got suspended and 2 of the judges got banned for life because they accepted bribes from the KOC to select Park Si Hun. Even he admitted that he lost that fight to Roy Jones Jr.

Whether Yuna deserves the Gold or not it was up to the judges. It's not perfect, but that's the way it is.

Yuna said it herself. She handled the situation professionally, but it's too bad the Korean people don't think the same.

The viewers will most likely chose Yuna's perfomance, but the skating experts said that Sotnikova skated a much more difficult program. Plus, she's skating in front of her home crowd.

"The scores are given by the judges so I'm not in the right position to comment and there is nothing I say that will change with my words," she said. "The most important thing for me was to take part in these Games."

Yuna did not skate like she did 4 years ago. I knew if the score was too close with Sotnikova, it was pretty much hers to lose and not Yuna. That is the difference when you are skating in front of your home crowd.

I don't care whether Yuna Kim won or not. I wasn't surprised about this happening when Yuna Kim didn't repeat.

Now, I have much more respect with Yuna Kim, because she handled defeat with class. Unlike the way the Koreans are behaving. I also believe it was Yuna's message to the Korean people to move on and get a life.

kringis, it's funny how Koreans are getting mixed up between Julia Lipnitskaia to Adelina Sotnikova.

Julia Lipnitskaia did fall twice and she didn't even medal.

Adelina Sotnikova has a reputation of falling under pressure, but in the Sochi games, she skated like a completely different skater and won the gold by skating cleanly.

It's funny how Koreans compare how the Japanese would do the same if Mao Asada skated a clean program. Just say if Mao Asada did not fall on her short program. It didn't matter, the best she would have done was a bronze medal. Will Japanese fans complain?? Yes. But will they go all the way by writing hate mails or write a petition to Change.org to have the scores investigated? No. Yoshiro Mori's stupid comments does not represent the entire nation of Japan. He doesn't have much longer to live anyways. So let him be a grumpy old man.

I started to show my respect to Yuna when she made the right statement. It seemed like she behaved far better than the Korean fans.

"The scores are given by the judges so I'm not in the right position to comment and there is nothing I say that will change with my words," she said. "The most important thing for me was to take part in these Games."

I also believe this is a message from Yuna Kim to the annoying Korean fans saying, "Leave me alone! Let me enjoy my life!"

TokyoGas, don't worry. Mori is 77, I doubt he's going to live much longer. Let nature take it's course.

Even if Mao skated clean, the best she would have won was bronze. The only way she could have won gold was to land 4 triple axels in the free skate. Since that wasn't in her program, the best she could have done was bronze.

gelendestrasse, I was saying the same thing. I never heard of a perfect judging system.

After the short program, I knew that Yuna Kim was not going to repeat. If Sotnikova skates clean, the gold was hers to lose. Yuna didn't skate like the way she did back in 2010. Her program in Sochi is a little more conservative compared to 4 years ago, and Sotnikova's program went all out.

Yeah, I agree that Sotnikova's score was a bit inflated, but it didn't matter. She was skating in front of her home crowd so it was going to be inflated.

If Yuna really wanted to repeat, she would have stayed with Brian Orser, but she wanted a life and cash in her success.

Koreans never cheated. Ask Roy Jones Jr. when he was cheated out of his gold medal to a Korean fighter. By the way, there was proof that the KOC bribed the judges to select the Korean fighter, but we all knew who won. People forget about Anthony Hembrick, when a Korean shuttle driver got lost and took him to wrong arena, which resulted to a disqualification for Anthony Hembrick when he was supposed to fight a Korean fighter.

I can't imagine the next Winter Games in Korea. I'm not going to be surprised to see how bad the Koreans will cheat. Much like how I wasn't so surprised about Yuna Kim losing to the Sotnikova on Russian soil. I'm pretty sure that Sotnikova will retire, since she won the gold. So all eyes will be hating Julia Lipnitskaia

I wasn't surprised that Yuna Kim did not repeat in Sochi. I had a feeling that a Russian figure skater would win the gold, but I didn't expect Adelina Sotnikova to win the gold. This is the history of figure skating, most gold medal winners usually wins when no one expect them too. All eyes were on the other Russian Julia Lipnitskaia would win the gold, whether it was a scandal or not. Shizuka Arakawa won, because no one expected her to. All eyes in 2006 were focused on Sasha Cohen and Irina Slutskaya. Yuna's biggest mistake was not the way she skated, but the way she split with her coach Brian Orser. Now that he coached another gold medalist Yuzuru Hanyu. I was really impressed that Yuna even won a silver, training in Korea. There is a big difference between training in Korea to training in Canada. In Korea, the media will follow her every move, even if she had to take a trip to the toilet. No different to the Japanese media with Mao Asada. Mao and Yuna both made a serious training error. If Yuna bailed on Brian Orser, Mao should have taken that opportunity to be coached by Orser. Instead Mao made the same mistake by training locally. When Yuna Kim won the gold in 2010, she was training in an almost perfect environment, while Mao was training in Japan doing Skype with her Russian coach. If Yuna was training the way she was from 2007-2010, the results would have been different. She would have been a 2-time Olympic gold medalist and the Russian might not have been close. I saw Yuna skate last night and compared to 2010 and there was a huge difference. 4 years ago, she was skating with confidence and with great speed. Mao Asada could have done 5 triple axels in 2010 and still lose. Yuna was smooth and her movement was beautiful. Last night, she was relying too much of her artistic ability and her skating wasn't as smooth as she was 4 years ago. It seemed like Yuzuru Hanyu took Yuna Kim's body and skated for the gold. I understood why Yuna Kim wanted to move back to Korea, as peaceful as Canada can be, it is a bit boring compared to Korea. Yuna wanted a life, which she didn't have when she was training in Canada. I thought Sotnikova skated better, because she had nothing to lose. Nobody expected her to win and all eyes were on the other Russian skater Julia. It is weird that the Soviet Union never won an Olympic Gold in ladies Figure Skating, after all those medals they won during the Cold War.
