바뀌기전 : The original interview article uploaded by IOC; making up a false quote of Yuna
On 20 February 2014, in front of an enraptured crowd in Sochi’s Iceberg Skating Palace, Sotnikova finished ahead of Kim to secure gold. “It’s a dream, an absolute dream!” she exclaimed. “The Games are being held in my own country and I’ve won a gold medal – it’s a very special feeling that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.” Kim was magnanimous in defeat: “She put on a great show,” said the Korean of her young Russian rival. “She’s a highly technical skater and was very difficult to beat tonight. I saw her in Innsbruck as part of my role as Games ambassador. We both battled for gold tonight, but she managed to come out on top.”
바뀐 후: After receiving complaint from Yuna Kim’s agency for writing a article on thing Yuna didn’t say, IOC deleted the fake quote.

Honestly? why even bother writing an article to make what happened in the Olympics as if it wasn’t a big deal? They are so stupid. They shouldn’t just delete the quote, they should publicly apologize for lying, using media as tool to cover up what happened in Sochi. Olympics seriously i’ve lost respect.
…during 2010 Worlds in Torino, we were on same bus as Kiira Korpi. At one point, Yuna’s manager spoke to Kiira and invited her to participate in the All That Skate Ice Show, Fabian and I looked at each other and said: ‘one day; our turn will come’. In February we were contacted by Yuna’s agency, AT Sports, through Brian Joubout. Yuna’s agent saw our performance on youtube and invited us to perform in the show this May. We were on cloud nine. These galas are considered a dream for figure skaters. Some of our skating friends told us that they are the best produced in the world and that you are welcomed and treated like rock stars by the fans.
