ETA : But asks the ISU to reverse its decision. (can't edit the title to complete it)
I don't think that has been posted before.
I was checking the website of L'Equipe for the Euro athletics champs and found this
Roughly translated by Google :
Plushenko request ISU's clemency
Competition prohibited by the International Federation (ISU) because of his participation in paid galas, Evgeni Plushenko decided not to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. "We felt that this was not the right process, "his coach said Friday, Alexei Mishin. The Russian, triple world champion and gold medalist at the Turin Olympics, does not abandon the idea of entering the Games in Sochi in 2014 and expects to it "that the ISU will reverse its decision." Which seems complicated because he took part in performances in Russia and other countries in March and April, at the same time missing the World Championships, without seeking permission from the Russian Federation (FSFR). "Evgeni is a remarkable athlete who has contributed greatly not only in skating but also in Russian world sport, "pleaded his coach. (Avec AFP)
