Brilliant post Nationals interview by Plushenko:-
Here were some of his comments:-
“I would like to thank all of my friends and fans who supported me today.....Many of them attended the competition today. I would also like to thank all of my enemies. Many of them also attended the competition today. Without their constant criticism, with only praises from fans, one would never achieve anything.”
He seems to be saying that he finds inspiration and motivation in what he refers to as the "constant criticism". An interesting way of dealing with it.
There are many and varied ways of dealing with ones critics. So which skater dealt with it best?
