    I can't wait the Euros.. he said :
    "We have several options of the long program, and in one of them 70% of jumps are in the second half. Naturally, in the championship of Russia, I did not skate it. Still it looks more interesting, and I hope to skate it in the Europeans. And, of course, there is a second quad in it (smiles)! Without this, it will be difficult to win."

    This is very important he changed his jumps in 4-4 layout , in JO was 6:2 !!! 4 jumps with no preparation and not on the corners of the arena!! So he worked so much and so hard..

    Thank you for pointing that out! I never notice stuff like that (I like frontloaded programs, because it's less stressful as a fan :lol:). I was just happy to see him doing a 3 jump combo, lol. He really has it together this season in terms of addressing each and every critique of his skating.

    I am a big Plushenko fan, and I loved his LP, but it is beatable by a clean Chan or Fernandez or Takahashi or Hanyu, as far as skating goes, but are they as tough as Plushenko as competitors? Up to this point, I have to say no.

    I don't think Fernandez is a better skater..Fernandez said in Spanish radio
    http://www.ivoox.com/javier-fernandez-el-partido-12-audios-mp3_rf_1671416_1.html

    Javier Fernández, en El Partido de las 12: "Plushenko es el Cristiano Ronaldo del patinaje"

    Fernandez mentions Plushy as: "Cristiano Ronaldo of skating"

    Maybe the North-Americans don't know who is C. Ronaldo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cristiano_Ronaldo

    He is one of the best, popular soccer player now, and of all time

    Surprised Javier would mention Ronaldo who is from Portugal and not someone from the champion Spanish national team. :D Nice compliment though!

    Euros will be interesting. Plushy's National score is about 7 points above Javi at GPF, but of course the nationals can be inflated so it's hard to say. Last year, Plush actually did better at Euros (261.23) than Nationals (259.67). I don't think he would beat Javi if he does two clean programs, but Javi's inconsistency will open the door. I was stunned when he managed not to medal at Euros last year after such a strong Grand Prix.

    Is he better than Beckham? Sorry, I don't follow soccer, so I don't know any of the famous names except Beckham.

    Nice of Javi to pay Plushenko a compliment.

    Cristiano Ronaldo, being Portuguese but playing for Real Madrid, sort gets universally accepted. The tabloids certainly thinking he is the best Iberia has to offer.

    I think Ronaldo is better, he is an attacking player, striker, forward I don't know what is the good term. And probably you know Beckham's name, because he played in US.

    RATING OF RUSSIAN ELITE 2012:(the most merit people for the reputation of Russia)

    Plushy is again among Top 10!

    In soccer, I have known only two names until now- Pele and Beckham; and the latter because of the movie 'Bend it like Beckham' :lol: That's how ignorant I am about soccer. Now I know Ronaldo, because his name appeared on a figure skating chat board.:lol:

    I didn't say he is a better skater. He can do 3 clean quads in an LP however, and will be rewarded highly for those. Plushenko at this point is older, injured, and we don't know what shape he will be in, in 2014. He will be beatable. It's not going to be like 2006. However, he has the strongest mind of all. If anyone wants to beat him, will have to skate nearly clean in both SP & LP. That's how Lysacek did it in 2010. IMO Chan has the best chance of beating Plushenko in 2014, because of his superior basic skating, even if he makes a few mistakes. I will be thrilled just to see Plushenko compete in Sochi, in both SP and LP. What an achievement that would be, with or without a medal!

    The Russians summed up the year of 2012

    The All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center presented data on how Russians assess the outgoing year and the expectations of the coming year, what events are the key ones, and who are the people of the year in politics, sports, and arts.
    ...

    Athlete of the year of 2012 is Evgeni Plushenko. The last time he was athlete of the year was in 2007, 5 years ago, and now he came back - he scored 9%. Andrei Arshavin is in the second place, and Maria Sharapova is in the third place. For comparison, last year Andrei Arshavin was number one, and Fedor Yemelyanenko went after him.


    Comngratulations Plushy!

    You know, Plushy's children ain't need to find the role models or mentors for them else where. Their own father is a great one and you cannot find any better one than Plushenko!
