Donno. I don't think he knows too and he has said in interviews that he will take a year at a time. Two years is quite some time away. Anything can happen.
BTW, why are we talking about Chan in this Plushy surgeries thread?:)

I don't see why not. He can still improve on many things and he's only 21. He didn't start winning until last year's World. I feel like it's just a beginning for him.

Because he is the new KWAN!! Yipee, I've always wanted to be the first one to randomly insert Kwan into a thread. :rofl:

The thread has probably run its course----so maybe that is the reason some of us are talking about Michelle Chan lol

I hope Chan is not the next Kwan. She choked in Olympics.

...It does not matter to me WHO the skater is. I am firmly of the opinion that once you fall, you should no longer be able to win...

So what would you have the judges do at competitions in which all of the contenders fall? It's been known to happen. In fact, it's happened more than once; even at the senior world level.

Then the last skater, who knows before hand that all other skaters have fallen, so can't win. S/He just go out spin around 4 minutes then win :hat1:

I don't know... wouldn't the stress of knowing you can't win if you fall make you fall on one of those spins? It would be much safer just to stroke around the rink a bit and do a lot of posing. ;)

Maybe no medals would be rewarded. I actually think that's a pretty audacious idea. But only at the senior level - at the junior level it might discourage far too many from continuing.

But it would totally energize the Seniors? :rolleyes:

Heh. Obviously, it's a stupid idea, but I'd like to see those who say "You can't win with a fall" say "a fall should disqualify a competitor" because that is literally the only guaranteed way that their wish can come true.

I don't know, those toe picks are tricky. Perhaps just posing with no stroking would be safer ...:rofl:

Then how do you determine Silver and Bronze? A spin may make the difference :hat1:

So why was it decided that the back operation was not needed? Did the injury just heal on its own?
According to this RIA Novosti English article dated Feb. 28, 2012 (http://en.ria.ru/sports/20120228/171586895.html):

“The injury will be treated with non-invasive methods: injections into the muscles, physiotherapy, acupuncture,” Russian skating team doctor Yaroslav Bugaev said Tuesday, adding the injury would stop causing Plushenko pain after a minimum two weeks' treatment.
