    Elizabeth Tuktamysheva : For Plushenko , nothing is impossible

    Petersburg skater Evgeni Plushenko estimated the chances at the 2014 Olympics .

    - How are the preparations for the Olympics ?

    - Who will go there , will be decided at the Russian Championships and the European Championships in Budapest in January. In all an equal chance . Especially preparation has not changed, and I do not feel pressure . Everything is in working mode. In any case, I try to ignore the most. Apparently, I'm the kind of person that has little to knock me out of the rut . I try not to think about it and get pleasure from what we have now. And come what may. But I certainly hope that will speak well and take away the Olympics. We must be content with the present and do not make plans in advance .

    - You and Plushenko train on the same ice ?

    - No, there is separation . We Artur Gachinski first ride , and Zhenya - then. Alexey has placed so he does not have time to work together with all . We very rarely intersect with Eugene now . But the program I saw him. I loved the beautiful music . He's a very , very serious preparations .

    - How would you rate his chances at the Games ?

    - For this man , nothing is impossible . If he wants and believes , then he will . The main thing - to believe in yourself . And he believes and knows that he can , then everything will be - said Tuktamysheva

    Recall up to the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi was 121 days .

    I assume Eugene is Evgeny? :) It's funny that these translations try to translate proper names. It always annoys me when they 'translate' Elena as Helen. Those are two different names, as are Eugene and Evgeny. I don't want to change his name.

    That aside, I agree with what Liza said. Nothing is impossible for Evgeny Plushenko. Keeping my fingers crossed that he stays healthy. Everything will take care of itself if he does.

    I think these names are same names, in different languages. But the translater translates Zhenya as Jack. :lol: Those are different names!

    Proper names should never be translated. They are names, not words.

    Mishin: Plushenko is now very much built form - in both plans, physically and technically http://evgeni-plushenko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6&p=80259#p80259

    Mishin:
    " If we talk about Zhenya Plushenko, he is now very much built form - in both plans, physically and technically. He has already perform a quadruple jump, approximately like he did it in the best of times - not worse than before Vancouver 2010, and better than before last season. His preparation makes me happy! But we will wait for the official start, to look at Evgeni in competitive conditions. For now, judging by the training process, all goes well. But for all, it is clear that the official start - is quite different feeling, so we are waiting "Volvo Cup" tournament, which will be held in early November in Riga (Latvia )."

    Not sure if anyone's translated this, but a quick recap if anyone's interested: the news piece basically gives an overview of Plushenko's competitive highlights, including his retirement and re-emergence in 2009, as well as his ISU suspension and injury/recent surgery. They say the first half of his show program was choreographed for the Olympics but that the second half takes from his program from 2006 Olys (and imply that his full program wasn't ready to be showcased yet) - I'm curious if that's true or if since he's doing a greatest hits that this is intentional ...

    Anyway, in the interview with Plushenko he says if you have the wish and the dream, and you love your career/sport and consider it a part of your life, and you have a clear goal, then anything is possible - you just need to keep putting in the effort and work towards it. They go on to talk about the skeptics who don't think he's qualified to go to the Olympics, and Plush says those people don't really know what's going on and are not experts. He says Russia does have some [promising? implied] athletes but that they do not yet have the stability to perform at the necessary international level. The news piece ends by saying it looks like none of the newcomers can challenge Plushenko's "Prince on Ice" title and that at the same time he is making history/creating miracles, this is reflecting the "awkward situation" (yes the word awkward was used) that Russia still has no heir to men's figure skating.

    Overall it was very complimentary and respectful of him as "one of the greats".

    Alexei Mishin about Plushenko's new Free program "The Best of Plushenko":http://evgeni-plushenko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6&p=80289#p80289

    Mishin about Plushy's programs...
    - Explain which Free program Plushenko preparing for this season?
    - Plushenko's Free Skating this season will be called "The Best of Plushenko". In this composition will be included best pieces of his past programs. A new composition has passed through the ears and hands of the composer. Made appropriate transitions from one musical theme to another. Zhenya has many admirers of his talent, and each has some favorite program, which over the years he performed. The task of the Olympic Free Skating is to give an opportunity to all figure skating fans to get pleasure from viewing these pieces, combined in one coherent and complete tune.
    It should be noted that, on the one hand, in the new program will be saved key and the characteristic movements of Plushenko from past programs. On the other hand, steps canvas and general choreographic solutions match modern requirements for skater programs.

    - To what extent is ready Free Skating?
    - Evgeni's Free Skating is ready. The athlete for now is not yet ready to perform it in competitive conditions. We are on the way to solving the task. And Short and Free programs are finished. Short program he is ready to perform at competitions. Ugh , ugh, not to jinx it. While Free is in the stage of skating improvements.

    Motor City morsels: Yellow Trankov not so mellow
    Recovering Plushenko works on 'Best of Plushenko' free skate

    Posted 10/20/13 by Lynn Rutherford, special to icenetwork http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/10/20/63188258

    Plushy's part

    Plushenko on Sochi track, says Mishin

    One man who will likely not sport yellow this season, Evgeni Plushenko, isn't competing at Skate America, but reporters deluged his longtime coach, Alexei Mishin, with questions about the three-time world champion's chances to qualify for a fourth Olympic Games.

    Plushenko won Olympic gold in 2006 and silver in 2002 and 2010. He, along with fellow Mishin pupil Artur Gachinski, Maxim Kovtun, Sergei Voronov and Konstantin Menshov, are generally considered to be vying for Russia's single men's spot in Sochi.

    "He does now triple Axel and he does quad toe," Mishin said, quickly whipping out a smartphone to play a video of Plushenko landing a solid triple Axel. "He still has screws in his back, and with this it is not so simple to do jumps, but he is very powerfully charged to be a skater."

    Plushenko, who withdrew from the 2013 European Figure Skating Championships after the short program due to a back injury, underwent spinal disc replacement surgery in Tel Aviv in January. Mishin wasn't sure when, or if, the screws would be removed, but work on his pupil's free skate -- a mélange of past programs, titled "The Best of Plushenko" -- continues apace in St. Petersburg.

    "This [free skate] was my idea," Mishin said with pride. "I should love my own ideas. If I did not love myself, nobody would love me."

    If Gachinski's performance at Skate America this week is any indication, Plushenko may be a step closer to Sochi. The 2011 world bronze medalist placed eighth, and last, after missing many of his jumps.

    "Of course, Russian nationals will be a fight for him," said Mishin, who has trained Plushenko since the skater was 11 or 12. "All his life was a struggle for himself. Nobody ever awarded him any gold medals for free, just for the hard work."

    As many hours as Plushenko puts in the rink, though, he still takes time out for fun.

    "He is not crazy," Mishin said. "He loves golf. He loves hunting. He loves his children (one with a previous wife, one with his current wife and two stepchildren).

    "Plushenko is not like a figure skating paranoid. He loves life also."

    Thinking of Yuri Smekalov (ballet dancer and choreographer) and one Plushenko's fan about "artistry"and choreography http://yaya124.tumblr.com/post/64851404876/when-did-you-start-working-with-a-skater-you


    “

    - When did you start working with a skater, you can determine how wide the range of his artistic, choreographic possibilities?

    - In figure skating, the good news is that you can create a choreography that will hide any flaws. If an athlete is inexpressive, we can compensate for plastics, and to focus on it. Put the motion that will express their individuality that is necessary to convey to the viewer.

    Suppose take Plushenko. His charisma is so powerful that no matter what image of Zhenya chose, “he includes himself,” his inner strength and inner euphoria begins. It’s so captivates the audience, they forget that even a given image, which invested director. To them it does not matter. With Eugene in this sense simply to work…
    ”
    —

    (mildly edited google translate)

    This is from a recent interview (Sept. 2013) with Yuri Smekalov, award-winning ballet dancer and choreographer, about his work as a figure skating choreographer. As a Plushenko fan, obviously I am super gratified that an artist of Yuri’s calibre spoke so highly of Evgeni, in particular of his often-mentioned charisma. Maybe I am reading between the lines, but I think there is also an interesting point here regarding the relationship between the skater and the choreography, especially as it applies to Plushenko. To me, that point has to do with the ultimate source of artistic content in a figure skating performance.

    Here is an excerpt from the ISU’s outline of its judging system (http://www.isu.org/vsite/vcontent/p...52094-169310-31825-132302-custom-item,00.html). In the section on PCS, the Perfomance/Execution and the Interpretation components, which are often seen as the “artistic” measurement of a performance, Performance/Execution is defined as the physical and emotional involvement of the skater/couple as they translate the intent of the music and choreography

    The Interpretation component is defined as the translation of the music to movement on ice

    These are not necessarily bad definitions. In particular, I am glad to see that they acknowledges intent, i. e. artistic content, in the sense of meanings/emotions/new ways of seeing the world can be evoked in the viewer. However, I’ve always felt that there is a serious limitation to these definitions, in that it appears to presuppose that such “intent” comes from the music and the choreography, and that the role of the skater is as a translator, whose job is to express these intents that come from outside of him or herself. While this is, of course, one way a skating program/performance can achieve artistic force, I feel that this assumption define the relationship between the skater and the program (i. e. music and choreography) in a restricted way: to be “artistic” is, in very large part, about performing the music well. Now I am by no means whatsoever an expert on the modern theory of art, but based on what little knowledge I have gleaned… Well, I’ll go ahead and say it, just as my own opinion: I must suspect that the view of art revealed in these definitions is also not quite the most informed one.


    When it comes to Plushenko, I feel that these definitions are in general not really well-suited, let’s say not toward judging, but let’s say seeing his skating. Many fans, upon seeing him skate, speak of aura, charisma, presence. These words of Yuri’s point to this direction as well. I don’t quite think that it is literally true that the specific image “does not matter”—after all, if it really didn’t, Evgeni and his team would not be nearly as incredibly picky about programs, or about “feeling every move”, as they are. But I think what is being suggested is that when Plushenko skates, the ultimate source of artistic content is him, and the music, the image and the choreography need to play more the roles of vehicles that give form to whatever it is that comes from within him. Of course, in terms of competition needs, the program has its own constraints and things that it must do, but artistically speaking, between the skater and the program, in his case it is the skater that takes the lead, and that is, I think, a fundamentally different kind of relationship from some of the assumptions that seem to be underlying the ISU’s definitions.

    A side note: in terms of “charisma” vs. “content”. It seems to me that people often often an opposition between them. But I think in many situations, this is a false dichotomy. It is possible that charisma is content, in that it can be the most direct and intangible expression of the inner life of the artist, and his or her emotional connection with forces that cannot be described otherwise. In the best sense of the word, charisma is soul, and what can be more significant content than that?

    (via plushenkology)

    yaya124's comment:

    One has to see him skating live to feel that energy. Even when he is just practicing simple movements, you can see the dedication and professionalism (comparing to other skaters from the training camp). When he starts to skate with music, it is just magical.

    Physically he is not a strong bulk built guy yet his skating is very powerful, totally on another level from that aspect. This power, such presence one has to witness live in order to really appreciated (except for haters since if you come with such bias, I doubt you can open your mind).

    Plushenko will carry the Olympic torch in St. Petersburg

    Gorshkov:
    " Meanwhile, the president of the Figure Skating Federation of Russia Alexander Gorshkov noted that he pins great hopes on Evgeni Plushenko at the Olympics in Sochi.

    “In the men’s figure skating our main hope is, of course, Evgeni Plushenko. He prepares well, purposefully and with qualitative dynamics,” newspaper Trud quotes Gorshkov.

    “Last week I watched his training session and was satisfied. But it’s difficult to boost trainings after the spring surgery. The situation is complicated by the fact that at the Olympics we have just one spot in men’s event, so the Russian will face a double competitive load, taking into account the team event.” Gorshkov noted."

    @worldskating I talked to Verner in a mixed zone 2 years ago & he said "If I ever beat Plushenko I will throw my skates in the air & retire" :cool:

    Tomas likes and admires Plushhy he said in an another interview:

    - Q: Evgeni Plushenko plans to come back, by the way.

    - Tomas Verner: Yes, I spoke to him about it. On the one hand, I fully understand him, on the other - do not at all. For him, figure skating is a passion and a challenge. And he just loves challenges. He loves to prove things to himself. He've been doing that for years. Personally, to me is difficult to find a better skater than Plushenko in the history of figure skating. Even so, before (Plushenko) the sport was not so remarkable. Now the figure skating demands much more, it is more tiring, and being in the top form for many years is very hard. But look at Plushenko: he won the silver in Salt Lake City, gold in Turin, one more silver in Vancouver. For that, he had to be for at least 8 years, the best among the best. He achieved everything that was posisble, and it seems that he has no reason to come back and compete in Sochi. If he doing it only for himself, I fully understand him - he needs the adrenalin, he loves to compete.
    He is good in every sport, which he tries. For example, I think I'm quite good in the table tennis. But Plushenko literally take away me from the table. I had no chance against him. We were playing football, and again I was amazed, how good is he with the ball, how well he is coordinated. This guy was born to become a superhero. If he comes back and win a medal in Sochi, he will rewrite the history of figure skating. It will be an outstanding achievement.

    - Q: Tell me about a show, which was held in the middle of April in Prague.

    - Tomas: It was quite special for me. I don't participate in too many shows during the season. But it was a case, which I could not refuse - I'm the leading skater in Czech Republic, even if the results of the worlds don't say so. Plushenko was the first star of the show, I was the 2nd. It was great to spend some time with Evgeni. I love sharing the ice with him, especially when we don't compete. I asked him to help me a bit with the jumps, and he agreed. It was nice of him. https://www.google.hu/search?q=plus...A%2F%2Ffyeahtomasverner.tumblr.com%2F;432;290
