Yuna: We’ve been compared and have competed for so long, and it seems like there won’t be that competition between us again. I think I’ll remember her the most. I don’t think there are many skaters like us two, who were constantly being compared. (x)
Mao: She and I have shared ups and downs since Juniors, always under the spotlight, always trying our best. For both me, and I’m sure it’s the same for Yuna, this Olympics was about a challenge for ourselves. And we both did it. And I’m so glad. (x)
