sad news: Plushenko will have surgery in Israel, where will be replaced the intervertebral disc in his spine.
http://en.rsport.ru/other_sports/201301 ... 75819.html
“The recovery will last a long time, but not so much to set back his preparation for the (2013-14) season where the main competition will be the Olympics,” Mishin said.
“Tomorrow, he will undergo the operation, but his preparation plans won’t be altered, because he’ll be able to walk and swim in four weeks’ time.”

Please keep us posted on his surgery and recovery.
At least he is getting the problem fixed. I hope he does not rush back to the ice and ruin any chances of his competing in Sochi. At this point I am not even sure that his body can handle the rigors of eligible competition. If he cannot compete, I am just grateful for the wonderful years of skating he gave us for so long.
Shame on those who were criticizing him for withdrawing from the Euros LP. He must have skated the SP with unimaginable pain .

I usually watch the videos that you post, but not this time! Ouch!
Best wishes for a speedy and successful recovery.

Bionic Plushy may yet become a thing, it would seem.
I hope he comes through it well and takes it slow back onto the ice!

Dear Plushy fans!
The Plushy's fans have an idea to make an action(flash mob)
that everyone write a tweet to Plush with the same words :
"Женя, мы с тобой! Выздоравливай! Мы тебя любим! / Zhenya, we are with you! We love you! Get well soon!"
Tomorow (saturday) in 12am (Tel Aviv time), 11am (CET), 14h (Moscow time) send this message to Evgeni on his twitter https://twitter.com/EvgeniPlushenko !
Plushy's interview from the hospital
TV girl: The famous Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko who had to withdraw from the European Championship in Zagreb, was operated in the clinic in Israel. Our correspondent could meet him a few hours after the surgery. Evgeni said that before and during EC he was in pain, didn' feel his legs and couldn't properly train.
Plu: Now I am feeling like after the operation. Of course I feel some pain but in general I feel good. My attempt to skate at Euro was a risk. But I have always been a risky athlete who is going to his goal no matter how much it takes.
TV girl: Now Plu and his team are thinking about Sochi, if he can compete there at the proper level.
Doctor: I think with what spine I saw it's difficult to live, not to skate only. I think he is a person of a real will if he could skate with such pain. He had a severe distruction of his disk, but not the disk only. His intervertebral joints, connecting cords were all in awful conditions.
TV girl: Usually people after such an operation can barely leave the bed. But Evgeni started walking.
Plu (smiling happily): You see, they operated me yesterday, but today I can walk a little.
TV girl: The detailed report from Israel' clinic see tomorrow in our News progs.

interview with Brian Orser:
only Plushy's part, I used google translater (I hope Tanyka will translate this.)
Брайан Орсер: "С прошлого года я - фанат Плющенко"
Brian Orser: "Since last year, I am a fan of Plushenko" :-)
- Have you seen performance in Zagreb Plushenko?
- Yes, of course.
- Are not you surprised by his decision to withdraw after the short program?
- This is his and only his decision, I have no right to talk, it was correct or not. Plushenko - supertalant. And the fact that he is still willing and able to compete with much younger children, is admirable. What really surprised me in Zagreb - is his refusal to quadruple jump in the short program. Because Plushenko - unbeaten fighter. After that he made at the last European Championships in Sheffield, I became his fan. True. Remember thinking, OK, we have to admit he is a god figure skating, if he can fight like this. It was amazing! I did see him in training - such a calm, even relaxed. But Plushenko knows exactly how to get together when you go to the start. I know that he really wants to come to Sochi, and I can only wish him a full recovery and get in shape. Such men as he pushed all the other forward. This is for my students. They look at him with wide eyes. Besides Plushenko - the kind of person who surrounds the special aura they create around themselves a special atmosphere. And it's impossible to miss.

Yes, Mr Orser, he is special.

Lala, thanks so much for all the Plushenko news/articles. I really enjoyed Brian Orser's comments about him.

Johnny comments on Plushy (I did not know Johnny and Jana were so close):
On Russian star Evgeni Plushenko, who had back surgery last week competing in Sochi: "Evgeni and I are fairly close. I get an email from his wife every week and he'll text. Evgeni is unlike anyone else I've seen in the sport. He fights until he's bleeding or crying every single day to be better. He's the surest thing about the Sochi Olympics. He will be there and he will be in shape. He will excite his home country audience. Whether he wins or not is a different story, but he will be there."

Johnny was invited to every Plushy shows in spring, but the shows were cancelled, of course. Plushy doesn't like to write on his twitter and nowhere, so Jana writes to Johnny..

Plushenko to Sue Over Fake Surgery Claims
What an idiot journalist!

Good! That comment is outrageous.
