    From past weekend show in China, he's Biellmanning (or half-Biellmanning) at almost 28!, please, some of you may not like him, but anyone should accept this is something noteworthy.
    Once you are flexible, if you maintain it like he has you will always have it.

    I think the ISU is mad because he flaked out of worlds and later did a show, they did lose a lot of money esp with Evan not being their either. Not enough people care about Weir, sorry.

    I think he is a great competitor. I think his choreography could use a ton of work, it's getting really ugly…but if he wants and can skate in Sochi he should be allowed too. I really think he was treated differently that other skaters on this issue.

    How did they lose money by Plushenko or Lysacek not appearing? The TV contracts were all set -- as far as I know, they don't come with appearance clauses -- and many of the tickets for Worlds are pre-sold. Did the Eurosport advertisers suddenly pull out when either skater decided not to compete?

    Yes, he is very flexible, that had been always the reason he is one of the few that can actually do it.

    But, if this is the only reason, why does practically all of them who are capable of Biellmann stop doing it at certain age?
    Even he has been unable for some years because of injuries. Everybody, including fans, assumed he had lost it, and now, all of the sudden, he's doing it again!

    I just used it as an example of the "No, he can't..... wait..... he's doing it!" phenomenon that oftenly happens with Plush

    That's really nice to hear... do you know if there's a translation of that interview anywhere?

    That IS amazing, especially with the groin injuries he has had. Most men don't even do that move, period. Beautiful pic. Love it!

    WOW! Where did that come from? He seems to be in great shape. I actually start to think that he will be back and competitive for Sochi! I´d love that. He has more power than anyone before. You gotta respect him even if you´re not a fan. When almost all other olympic gold medalists quickly disappear from the scene, he keeps fighting. He is doing amazing things for the sport.

    Nope. No we don't. Especially if he continues to be the Brett Favre of skating.

    Actually it was just arrows to show the rule of Isu needed and not any exception to the rule because he is Plushenko, nothing more meaningful or deeper than just that

    I "like" the use of "we" to support something we want to say like it is the common feeling.

    Wow, what a beautiful program. Plush is indeed looking VERY strong right now. And, the pic of the Biellman spiral ... love it.

    The point that was made in his interview: before skaters got only warnings for similar violations. He was the first one who lost eligibility. It looks like he IS an exception.

    He says in the interview that he skated because he didn't want to pull out of the shows again. The reason he pulled out of the shows the first time was because the ISU told the Russian Federation that they would sanction the Federation for giving him permission to skate, since it was in clear violation of their rules for a skater pulling out of GP. It was clear from their actions at that time that they would not tolerate a violation regarding shows. I'd call that a warning.
