Wait a minute, I believe I´ve missed the point of this article, is Chan competing at Euros??????
Evgeni Plushenko Cleared For Europeans, First Step To Olympic Showdown With Lysacek.
Being at Sochi is a dream and one that I doubt will come true for Plush.
and then I got bored.
Transitions - meh. If those are what passed for transitions back then, it certainly won't pass for them now compared to the crop of skaters we have now.
Crazy about sports!

I'm off to the Patrick Chan threads...where you can watch a molehill become a mountain in seconds!!!
I remember reading a Lambiel interview where Lambiel quotes Mishin as advising him - when they were working together - not to move too much between technical elements because he would so lose his stability on the jumps. If other skaters took out some of their transitions, maybe it would be easier for them to jump. I for one wouldn't ignore Mishin's advice as he really seems to know everything about jumps in figure skating.
gloves, mullets and hip thrusts!

Some skaters have this number in a single season!
