I think 7 triples is a more likely thing.
It must be translation fail. Here (https://twitter.com/VasilyKonov/status/246971249870401538) it says: 4Sal with small mistake on the landing, seven triples, axel perfect.

I wonder how far they will go with a quad salchow. UR because it is early in the season or he really has only ever done a toe really well? Keep and improve or abandon? If he thinks he can't do two quads but one higher scoring one he will try and imrpove it.

No pre-program choreography?? :lynch:

Who cares about choreography when Maxim Trankov is sliding his hands down her body?

That was smoking hot. I feel the need for a cigarette.

I've already sworn not to comment about the lifts this season. I will cry when I see Vera forced to do them.

I thought he was skating to Romeo and Juliet?? It's very bare most of the program, the last 30 seconds are fun.

Very different view - shows a lot more

Also, her layback, even though I prefer the hair cutter position, is beautiful!

Plushenko after-the-test-skates interview: http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/5080.html


No, I cannot say that today I skated brilliantly. It is still a work in progress. I didn't plan to skate here full force. The most inmportant thing was a quad Salchow, which, I think, I basically did. It was the first time I tried this jump in competition, because for me test skates and competitions are all the same. I am glad that I did all my jumps, they were smooth and easy. This means that today's task is done. But in general this program still needs plenty of work. For now it's just a draft of what it should be. As for dance elements, we indeed worked a lot this summer. With Camerlengo, Myamoto, David Avdysh, Sergei Petukhov. I worked with four choreographers this summer. Plus, there are my own movements, ideas.

In my plans there is a show in Italy, then Japan Open. It's an important competition, there will be such skaters as Daisuke Takahashi, Patrick Chan. I will show the same LP that I skated today. We'll work on it since it still needs a lot of improvement.

We tried to show a new Plushenko. It is a completely new choreography, new movements. Body works in a totally different way. It's an absolutely new image.

My main goal are the Olympic Games in Sochi. I can train and get ready without participating in Grand Prix. I'm not 18 or 20 anymore, I don't need the Grand Prix, I don't have anything to prove. I have work to do, and Games in Sochi are my top priority.

I'm satisfied with my jumps today, although there was a small mistake... I plan to do a quad Salchow and quad toe loop this year.

Walked through 2 jumps and a spin, but I like the layout. Obviously still very new, very bare and the edit needs getting used to, but he seems to be covering the ice better. Very strong jumps and I love the circular steps during "the Swan". He can be so lyrical and fluid when he doesn't over work it, which unfortunately he did right after during the straight line steps to "Danse Macabre".

I like Gachinski and his program. Too bad it probably won't survive in its current form till the big competitions. Gachinskiy from test skates is my favorite Gachiskiy :)

I was :lol: during that last step sequence. Sigh too bad we'll only get to see the full program at Russian nats and Europeans. I suspect it will be very different by then.
