When I see it, I'll believe it! What; he will look like and how he will be skating 3 years from now is a huge question. :confused:

Ditto. We'll see whether he can qualify at that point. . .

He is in no position to just announce he will skate in Sochi, which is not that what that silly gossip fluff you linked to said either. He can only accurately state he would like to try and make the team for Sochi. He barely made the Olympic team in 2010, I would actually be shocked if he made it in 2014 (should he even try which I also highly doubt).

If Todd Eldrige could do it Johnny can.

Sure he will...

If Todd Eldrige could do it Johnny can.

Elredge is a World Champion, 6 time U.S Champion and 6 time World medalist. Unlike Johnny he could return at 30 and be almost gauranteed a spot because of who he is.

If he has the desire and the work ethic over the next three-plus years, then good luck to him! Hope he doesn't do a "Sasha" and try to come back during Olympic season. He'll need to really commit if Sochi is in his plans.

If he can make the team, that is!

Kind of hard to believe since he is running off in so many different directions. This year, since the Olympics, he has done little more on ice than slink around to teen music. If he was really interested in competing with all of the strong young kids and their quads he would have to start working on artistry and begin learning about music. Of course, I doubt that we will ever see him compete again. He seems to say whatever comes into his head at the moment. I wish him well whatever he chooses to do.

I don't think "announces" is the accurate verb for this thread title since all he is quoted as saying to HollywoodLife.com is:

... when asked if he hoped to close out his career in Sochi for the 2014 games told us, I would love to, and am hoping to, compete in Sochi!

Weir, Plushenko, and Joubert are all going to be skating at the next Olympics with walkers. :P

I would love to compete in Sochi too. Mind you, Johnny has a considerably better chance than I do :)
But if he really wants to, he should start competing sooner rather than later. I think Sasha Cohen showed us that being an ex-Olympian doesn't guarantee you any kind of special treatment if you decide to go for another Olympics.

He did not announce anything.

He did not announce anything.Exactly. The publication is a total gossip rag that is trying to invent a story out of nothing.

At any rate, I seem to remember Johnny saying more than a few times that he wouldn't publish his book until he was done competing. His book is coming out in January. :shuffle:

this thread title is really silly.Johnny didn't announce anything.

Yes,maybe sometimes he's a big mouth,but most times it's the reporter's faulse:o:angryfire:mad:
