Evgeni Plushenko who participated to "The Ice" for the first time very excited the audience by the dynamic jumps and his unique steps.

The exclusive interview with Plushenko!

At first, as for the program which he showed in “The Ice” in this time…

Plushenko: I perform with the French music, "Je Suis Marade". Because it is very passionate music, I can skate with all my feelings.

By this program, he performs a lovesick man.
Expressing the situation of the intensely wavering feelings, he fascinated Japanese fan.
For participating to the ice show in this time, he is staying in Japan in a long term. Then, he seems to have had an unexpected experience.

Plushenko: While staying in Japan, I went to Okinawa and swam in the sea.
Snorkeling in the sea with my wife, I saw a sea snake! In the moment to have seen the sea snake, I forgot myself in the fear.
I think that my swimming at that time must have been near to one of the world champion of the swimming.

As is expected, he is Plushenko!
By the effect of the sea snake, he seems to be the world champion not only in the figure skating but also in the swimming!?

Plushenko has reigned over in the top in the skating world for many years.
He won a medal at all of the Olympics which he participated 3 times with Salt Lake City, Turin and Vancouver.
I attempted to ask him as for his future competition life.

Plushenko: Of course, my present target is to participate to Sochi Olympics which is hosted in my home country Russia in 2014.
Then, after 5 years or 6years, I would like to challenge the quadruple-quadruple combination jump.
At present, I am training the triple Axel-quadruple combination jump.

Lastly, what is the figure skating for you?

Plushenko: For me, it is all. It is just my life itself. I like figure skating very much. Of course, I like a show, too, but I like the skating as the competition, too, very much. For me, the figure skating is my life and is my work also, namely, it is my all.

:rofl: I'll bet he could have lapped Phelps after seeing the sea snake. I probably could have also.

Go for gold at Sochi Plushy! Knock yourself out. I'll be PML if he even thinks about it due to all the drama about how could he do such a horrible thing.

Thanks for the translation.

OMG, sea snake? :scream: Some of them are poisonous, right? :eek:

I thought Plush lost eligibility, so what's this talk about Sochi and 4/4 combos?

That animation was LOL. He said 5 or 6 years ago he was trying quad/quad combos. So I guess that's in the past. But he still tries triple axel quad combos. He is just really promoting the Japan Open Competition. He said figure skating is my life like 3 times!

Don't worry!
Because Putin will never approve the Sochi Olympics which Plushenko can not participate to!

Why drag Mr. Putin into this skating forum? I don't understand.

Anyway, thank you for your post.

"Then, after 5 years or 6years, I would like to challenge the quadruple-quadruple combination jump.

I didn't get these lines. It seems impossible for Evgeni to attempt the triple Axel-quad combo in his training sessions at this stage, considering his poor knees. To be frank, what's the point of continuing skating competitively at the cost of his own health? Such action/idea is simply crazy and unrealistic!

As for the sea snake in Okinawa

It seems to be “Black-banded sea krait” which is known as “Erabu Sea Snake” in Okinawa.
Quate from wikipedia
Generally found in Fiji, Southern Japan and Singapore their venom is ten times stronger than that of a cobra, making them extremely dangerous. But lucky for us they are very friendly creatures, they usually don't bite humans unless they feel threatened.

wow! he's looking as fit as a fiddle! a beauty of a 3 axel/ 3 toe, eh?? i'd say he's right on track to fullfill his dream of competing in his home country.... and i think he's going to try more combo jumps... that 3/3/2/2 was very good...nice flow. maybe he'll try to adapt more readily to what he needs to do under the new system.... and he's usually competed very well in russia. some of his greatest performances were in russia. stayed tuned. :watch:

No, he said figure skating is his life 4 times! LOL! And I've no doubt it is! The guy's the most competitive person i've ever known.... I truly think that he'll try his hardest to compete at his fourth Olympics.... and the only thing that'll stop him is his body.... But if Hongbo can compete and win gold at 37? then why not Plushenko at 31? Yes, Plush is doing the quads and combos... but he's not lifting a 100 lbs+ person all the time straining his back and shoulders... :)
