    Apparently Plushenko has had a nose job to reduce the size of his nose.

    See here

    He blames it for why he only won the silver at the Olympics.

    I took it at face value at first! Thoughts were like "deviated septum?" "some kind of accident?" Didn't by the cosmetic reason! But I fell for it!!

    He would never do that. The extra torque the nose provides is the secret to his jumping prowess. :p

    You honestly expect us to buy such a far-fetched story??? If his nose had been the reason for his placement, he would've only won the bronze!!! ;)

    He might be prettier without the big nose, but I think he would end up like Jennifer Grey, anonymous. Heaven forbid! I like him the way he is.

    The kids and I watched "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" this weekend and the DVD had recent interviews with the cast. She was unrecognizable, still pretty, but she looked like a different person and I have to say, her voice didn't match her face. Maybe it was because we had watched the movie, but it was strange.

    He would never change his nose - it's where he gets his uber-powers from... :plush: :plush: :plush: :plush:

    I actually think his nose gives him quite a regal profile.

    Regal? King Schnozz of Rhinoland maybe. If he had a nose job he would have to relearn all his jumps as the weight ratio would be totally off. Mind you, I'm so looking forward to seeing his work after working with such great choreographers. If he can change his style it will be one of the greatest accomplishments in mens skating for years... although it won't do anything about the attitude I know. Still, very curious to see how he's skating next season.

    I'm looking forward to the next season with great anticipation. He's working with excellent choreographers, he's changed up his style (apparently), he's not using Edvin's music for the first time in six years, he's focusing on improving all the areas of his skating, AND he's still found the time to pack in a couple more quads.

    If it all comes together...there may not be a skater in the world who can match him, let alone beat him.


    And I think for all that people are still giving him crap for his "attitude", you must concede that at least he was prepared to TRY and improve and change his style! A truly arrogant person wouldn't even consider it.

    All these Plush-nose talks is just one big yawn :eek:. Some people are simply jealous that his nose is not his only asset that is big.
