Evgeni Plushenko restores technical arsenal
And Artur Gachinski transformed it into Spanish macho, the Russian officer
By long tradition, the famous St. Petersburg coach Alexei Mishin conducts summer camps for their skaters abroad. For a long time it was Spain, a popular winter resort in the Pyrenees, Jaca, but in recent years Professor prefers Italy and Estonia, where since 2007 he has been two weeks each year with their students in the university town of Tartu - the rink SEC "Lõunakeskus." The correspondent of "Evening Petersburg" has visited the training camp with Alexei Mishin.
Interestingly, the site of the hotel "London", in the heart of the city, where prefer to stay with their students Mishin, the name of Alexis on the list of guests of honor - along with the Prince of Orange Villemmom-Alexander, now the King of the Netherlands, and the two presidents of Estonia.
"Tartu, - a city of youth, student city, the city of the future, there is a special atmosphere - explains the choice of location for Mishin fees. - An important factor: many here say in Russian, there is a feeling that you're away from home. And here's a fun new ice rink. "
Charges in Tartu organized with the support of the local school of figure skating. Which is very convenient - by daily master classes for young skaters Alexei Mishin is on the ice to work with pupils Evgeni Plushenko, Artur Gachinski and Elizabeth Tuktamysheva.
However, again according to tradition, to take part in «Mishin's Camps», as these fees are known all over the world are coming young talent from all over Europe and even from overseas - this year, for example, in Tartu in Mishina trained young skater from the most southern point of Africa - Cape Town. Alexei happy - work with young charges with positive emotions, and then with his students, he is working on the rise.
Unfortunately, due to the delay in the issuance of visas correspondent "VP" in Tartu was literally the last day of fees. Evgeni Plushenko has left for St. Petersburg - he was unwell mother. So the questions about the current state of Zhenya had to get a response from his mentor.
"A few days ago held a landmark event for us - Eugene performed a triple axel - told Alexei. - He felt the movement, so now we can assume that this jump in his arsenal. "
"As for the quadruple jump Plushenko - continued Professor - then this page, let's say, we have not yet opened, but soon open up mandatory. The main thing - to overcome the pain. And about the operation that made the wife of Israel, I am now telling everyone that the damaged vertebra was it harder all the rest. "
Said Alexei Mishin and Plushenko programs for the Olympic season. Short is ready, skater showed it to the public, it is the song of the Ukrainian group "Ocean Elzy" "Taka yak ty". But about an arbitrary Mishin put quite vague: "This is a program which did not have so far unique in figure skating. While the more I will not say anything - you will see. "
Is it likely to hire, which this season will be held in Sochi at the end of August. In the fall of Plushenko definitely scheduled to perform at the Grand Prix «Cup of Russia» in Moscow. But he will skate at one of the so-called "trophy" - in Finland, Germany and Nice - will depend on the verdict of doctors.
Not too wondered fees in Tartu and Elizabeth Tuktamysheva - she caught a cold week in Italy and has lain with the unpleasant temperature for 37. However Lisa rolled his failed programs that she loves - is a short in the style of Spanish and Latin music to folk dance Malaguena which was put well-known Canadian world champion figure skater Jeffrey Buttle 2008.
"These programs are in different styles, but they are very suitable for me - I ride, you can tell yourself - I told Lisa. - In the short program I am cheerful, mischievous, such as in real life. And I'm passionate arbitrary. And this is my other self. "
According to Lisa, the music for both programs offered her Mishin. "He knows me well, knows what suits me, and I immediately agreed to skate to this music. And do it with pleasure. " - Figure skater did not hide emotions do not end up splashed out on the ice.
But Artur Gachinski in Tartu has worked on all cylinders. And so exhausting that after training the forces were sufficient only for a walk around the city. The main thing is that he has now reached, according to a skater - has managed to overcome the recession, not only shocked the experts and fans of figure skating, but also of the Arthur. "But it's over. I follow all the instructions coach ride with pleasure - and the recession somehow pass me by "- not without inner satisfaction reported skater.
And Arthur succeeded, he said, "to overcome the stupid line, which ended with endurance." Now, it does not leave power by the end of any program like this had happened before.
This season, Arthur, two new programs - short for Spanish motifs and arbitrary on the music for the film "Anna Karenina" with Keira Knightley in the title role.
"In one program I - Spanish macho, and in another - Vronsky, a brilliant officer and a happy lover - laughs Arthur. - I can not say that I was closer, I have little these programs completely bowled. But I will say one thing for sure: both programs execute with pleasure. "
After fees Alexei Mishin in Tartu will continue to work with its skaters in St. Petersburg, and by August 20, will move to Sochi, where a week later will bring together all the leading Russian figure skaters and demonstrate in front of coaches and sport functionaries of their programs on the Olympic season.

I wish both Evgeni & Artur could compete at the Sochi Olympics. It's so disappointing to see Russia with just one spot in mens field.
BTW during my recent (and only) visit to Saint Petersburg, I told our tour guide how much I love figure skating. She asked me who is your favorite skater? I said Evgeni Plushenko? She looked excited and said- he is from Saint Petersburg! Of course I knew.

I'm still having difficulty with the fact that only one of Evgeni, Artur or Konstantin can go.

I am not saying it's fair but they had such high expectations of Gachinski that they attacked him when he fell way short of them. For Konstantin and everyone else, the expectations were not that high, and they were willing to give him more time. He fell short of even the lower expectations, but the fall was not as hard as Artur's, who was touted as the next Plushenko for years. Again, I am not saying it's fair but that's how people react quite often.

It's true. He did have the expectations and met them in 2011 but then really bombed in 2012 but was victim of nuclear bomb power attacks and was lucky he had a powerful coach so not to be totally obliterated forever.

GET AWAY FROM THE QUAD BIKE, PLUSHY. SERIOUSLY. GET THE HELL AWAY FROM IT. DO NOT TOUCH THAT THING. EVER. AGAIN.
Quad bikes are stupidly dangerous. Stupidly, crazy dangerous. They kill so many people because they flip so easily. So many farm accidents in Australia are from quad bikes. I'd never ride one.

This a quad bike: http://www.9jcg.com/tutorials/ali_is...ad_bike_01.jpg
Of course Plushy has to have a quad bike; the other bikes are for ice dancers.

Just today in the news there is the story of an Italian tourist who was a passenger on a quad bike in Mykonos. She was killed when her scarf got tangled in the wheels and her neck was broken. A tragic incident.
