    What is impossible for Plushy? Nothing! )) One nice reflection of http://whitebamboo.tumblr.com/post/7...91/dont-be-sad
    don’t be sad

    When he first said the word “Sochi” after Vancouver, everyone said, no, it’s impossible.

    When they took away his eligibility on trumped-up charges, everyone said, no, it’s impossible.

    When his knees were giving out, and they were cutting into his meniscus again and again, everyone said, no, it’s impossible.

    When it became clear just how close to permanent paralysis he had come, everyone said, no, it’s impossible.

    Everyone was wrong.

    He proved that it was possible. He stood on Sochi ice and competed, he helped Russia win its first gold medal at these games. He is the only male singles skater in modern times who have medaled at four Olympic games.

    He walked a road that no one has ever attempted before, that no one has ever thought possible before. He walked really, really far. This far.

    (one more reflection by @alena_hu) We should not remember our heroes only by their glory and victories..http://whitebamboo.tumblr.com/post/8...-only-by-their


    We should not remember our heroes only by their glory and victories, and avert our eyes at the moments of their adversity, trying to forget as if ashamed. For these are the moments that reveal them to be human, and reveal us to be human.

    So I don’t wish that people will forget what happened in the men’s individual competition at Sochi, but I will wish that eventually, people will come to remember it as it was. Namely, that Evgeni Plushenko, a mere human being, lost only to God in this particular competition. And that steel and titanium broke, but not his spirit.

    After Sochi he initially said he'd retire, but then said he was too rash and there was a 1% chance he'd skate in 2018 (lol). As lala noted above, in 1.5-2 months he'll start training again for his fall tour, and then I guess we'll see. He's just crazy enough to see if he can still do triple axels in shows and take it from there, I guess.

    What I would like to know from the medical types is that since his spine fused on his own and they were able to take out the screws, is there any chance that his skating could actually be stronger without the screws there?

    I think there was someone that was a medical professional who posted on one of the other Plushy threads that discussed his surgery. They stated that it would be wise that he not attempt to compete again and that jumping was iffy too. They stated if he did compete again it would almost certainly be detrimental to his back.

    That said, I honestly think he's done with competing. I think he likes to keep people guessing, but from here on out he will be enjoying his life as a father, husband and entertainer (not that he didn't before) and will leave the competition to the youngsters who will always be chasing his legacy.

    If anyone is interested translation of Italian version of interview with Tim Goebels:

    The American Tim Goebel recently gave an interview in which he was asked a few questions about Plushenko.
    OT: who were your favorite rivals?
    TG: Yagudin & Plushenko. In the year before SLC and in the Year of the Olympics we were always in the top group. It was exciting because of the competition between us about who would be the best. Twelve years have passed since then and skaters have begun to do what we used to do in 2002. It has taken a long time for the following generations to implement the quad jump in the new judging system.
    OT: What impressed you the most about Plushenko?
    TG: The most surprising thing about him is that he has always been at the top level of the sport for such a long time. It is really amazing that he has been able to come back, train and compete at the age of 31. I can't even imagine being able to train physically at such a level. No one in our group could have even taken it into consideration. Yagudin and I would never have had such a possibility to come back. Doing things that are technically so hard for such a long time is a kind of miracle. I can't even believe that he is still capable of doing them,

    That's cool. I remember when Goebel was on TSL and he was kind of implying Plushy was crazy to come back in a "good luck with that" kind of way.

    I also remember him being adamant that the judges were determined to give the Olympic Gold to Plushy in 2002, but since he messed up the in the SP they had no choice, but to give it to Yagudin. I never agreed with him on this. I always thought it was obvious that the judges favored Yagudin during the 2001-2002 Season, and that Plushy would have to move heaven and earth to win the big titles that year along with Yagudin skating helping him by skating on his butt.

    Anyway, it's still nice to read what he has to say about the Yagudin/Plushy rivalry 10+ years later.

    from his officials http://evgeni-plushenko.com/forum/vi...t=6&start=2830
    Old Plushy's interview ... but just now i found full translation - english and italian
    Strong Man - 2006. http://www.artonice.it/?q=en/node/480 and http://www.artonice.it/?q=it/node/441 he is very handsome on those pics

    this article shows his personality...

    The Olympic champion Evgeny Plushenko doesn't like releasing interviews, but he never denies a talk.
    He doesn't suffer of "prima donna" behaviour, but he's well know all over.
    He gets brilliant results, but he never stops.
    He has always liked hockey, but he has become a skater without equals in the world.

    In the following interview we'll identify with "J" the journalist and with "P" Plushenko.

    J: Mr. Plushenko, you don't like a lot communicating trough the press, is it the same also with journalist, even if they talk well of you?
    P: At the beginning of my sport career I hesitated to talk with the press. But with a bit of time journalists have got my trust. So I feel disappointed when one of you, suddenly and all alone, damage anything: he/she writes intentionally lies, he/she publishes false things without any interview. And these are not single cases. That's why anytime I loose my desire to talk with journalists.

    J: But not all are the same…
    P: Yes I know, most of you write true things (he smiles). I'm glad to release interviews to them!

    J: But, Mr Plushenko, are you a companionable person?
    P: I always maintain conversation. But most of the times I'm absorbed in my own thoughts. When I trainee, when I compete, there's a strong mix of emotions, of energy, of adrenaline. I'm totally inside my work, concentrated on me, and simply I have no forces for other things. At the end you feel a vacuum around you: you have not desire to do anything, but only lay down ad have a rest.

    J: And here you are, these boring journalists!
    P: With their questions, cameras and microphones. And you have to dedicate them a bit of your time, to talk. Sure, it's not easy.

    J: Mr. Plushenko, who's Zhenya for you? A "strong man"?
    P: It's me, for example, the skater Evgeny Plushenko (he smiles). I think to be strong both in life than in sport. When I began to skate and I was not able to realise a lot of things, my mother always repeated that I was strong, that I was the best and that I would have achieved my goals. And with this encouragement and support I went towards my destination. In general, I like winning.

    J: MR Plushenko, do you bear hard defeats?
    P: My family, my close and faithful friends and a first-class trainer. With this team we're simply invincible!

    J: Mr. Plushenko, are you always so serious? You smile just a few...
    P: Me? (He smiles). If I should smile always, people would think I'm an idiot. And normally I think that's strange when people smile without a reason. (He laughs). I like good jokes, farces, but they don't have to be "unhappy".

    J: I heard that you, Mr. Plushenko, are very irascible, emotive, but however you're able to control yourself. Can you tell us your secret?
    P: If during training sessions something goes wrong, I shout. But when I go at home and I talk with my wife, I get back serenity.

    J: Against who do you shout?
    P: Mmm, against myself when I'm not able to do anything. After all I try to be perfect: don't say a word more than necessary, don't do useless movements. Try to imagine: the free-programs lasts 4 minutes and 30 seconds. In this period of time you have to execute a lot of elements, all in a right way.you must have a remarkable concentration and attention. I never stop to wonder myself: "damn it! How it's hard this sport!", in ice-skating there's no space for mistakes.

    J: After all, as in some other sport.
    P: Oh yes, but in team sports it's totally different. If, for example, in a football match the opposition scores a goal, you still have a possibility of rescue. The same thing is for hockey, baseball and hand ball. In figure ice-skating you cannot get a second chance.

    J: So, why did you choose it?
    P: I didn't choose it. My mother sent me in a sport school to grow her son in a more healty way. (He smiles). When I was four years and a half old, during a walk in a park of Volgograd, my mother and I met a friend f her with her son. He got a pair of skates and was crying: "I don't want to skate!". Skates in those times were simply unavailable, and it displeased to waste this good. So this woman proposed to me to try skating. At the age of four I started skating, only two months later I had my first competition, with children who still skated for one or two years, and I finished seventh on 15. after that I decided to go on with the training. I liked it, because there was always something new: jumps, step sequences, elements.

    J: As far as I Know, when you were young you had to choose between hockey and figure skating…
    P: These are the facts: once I saw hockey players and I decided to change sport. My mother told me "try a bit again, then if you want to change you can do it". But I didn't do it. But passion for hockey always remains.

    J: And what is the difference between Evgeny Plushenko during his life and on ice?
    P: I think that there's no difference. My life is figure skating. And in my life I'm the same as on ice. It doesn't exist something like "Now I finish to skate my program, I whip off my mask and I go home!". I'm resolute. If I have a goal, I have to reach it, I must win. Not only in sport, but also in life. Sure, sometimes failures and defeats occur. It's normal, not always things are so easy. I got a lot of success and victories. My mother always told me: "Now that you've got winning, forget it, go towards new success, reach new tops!". During my all life I got in this way my victories. And I won all that I could win. But I know, I'm able to get more of this.

    J: For example?
    P: For example, repeating all that I said.

    J: What is the reverse of the medal?
    P: A lot of traumas and an unbelievable tiredness.

    J: Mr. Plushenko, what is your relation with glory?
    P: During my life I've always tried to be the best. But maybe it's for this reason that glory has not reached me casually! And until now I'm not bored of it! (he smiles).

    J: Don't you suffer of "prima donna" beahviour?
    P: Oh, it's not easy to judge. Maybe I should look at me with other people's eyes. Actually, I've been ill of this behaviour when my career was at the beginning, when I got the first money and appreciation.

    J: At the beginnignof March, Mr Plushenko, you and the other winners of the Olympic Games of Turin, were received from Putin. How is Putin's handshake?
    P:. I met more than once Vladimir Vladimirovic. Sure, it's pleasant when is the President of the Nation to congratulate, I can't hide this fact. The meeting happened with spontaneity and nonchalance.

    J: Did you have also a private meeting or everything happened following a rigid respect of the protocol?
    P: Yes, we had also a private meeting. But I don't want to tell you about this, it's a secret. (He laughs).

    J: The way towards the Olympic victory has been quite long. After the Olympic gold, didn't you ask to yourself:" What will I do in the future?"
    P: After the Olympic games I've tought: "Cool! I've everything!" But you don't have to relax, to lay down. You must work, go on.

    J: A comment from you: Ira Slutskaya's third place is deserved?
    P: I would say that Ira has lost a good opportunity. She has not been able to control her emotions, her adrenaline. That's what I really told her. She had to achieve the fixed goal, but in this competition he has been not able to do it. I'm really sorry, it was a pity.

    J: Do you think that the ideal athlete exists?
    P: Of course, no, beacuse also a strong person can loose. Every athlete has his weaknesses. Me too (he smiles). But only my team knows them. If my antagonists would be able to guess them, it wouldn't be so easy for me… (he smiles)

    J: Zhenya, what's missing to the Russian figure skating?
    P: Support! If the Federation would support its athletes like in the American one, maybe we could have best skaters. This is an example: we arrive to a competition, but you don't see that we're a team, because we don't possess a suitable equipment. Look the athletes of other nations: costumes of Americans and Canadians have not been seamed in some Chinese laboratory, they are pieces of design. You look at them and you think: "Here there's a real team with the aim of winning!". We, Russians, don't dress so bad, but we're not a team.

    J: And what is the cause?
    P: Maybe because of the management. But it's possible to change everything, it's only necessary to tell the truth. People have fear, but that's not right.

    J: Also you, Mr. Plushenko, have any fear?
    P: I never fear anybody. Maybe that's why sometimes other people call me "revolutionary".

    J: Somebody told that sport is fitness brought to the absurd. Do you agree?
    P: I disagree. Fitness means maintain the body on fit. Professional sport, instead, involve you at 100%. Doing fitness at least you can get a trauma, but doing sports it's also possible to die. Usually, sport is perceived in two different ways: as politics or as business. Rich parents, for example, think that their children have to do sport because they spent a lot of money (break)… about this topic we could have a long talk…

    J: Don't you fear to live without sport?
    P: Until now I've never thought at my life without sport, but I don't reject that in a next future I won't be an athlete anymore. I will have to look for another way. I've a lot of projects, a lot of friends. I've no fear.

    J: I heard that you would like to do cinema...
    P: I'd like trying something new. Even if this is relatively new: figure skating is also a bit theatre, a bit dance, a bit cinema, a bit acrobatic show. And I feel mine all these things.

    J: Which role would you play?
    P: The protagonist (he laughs). It could be an historic film, or maybe an action film.

    P: Car, work, house (a well-known saying during sovietic government, to indicate the three essential things that a successful person must have N.o.R.)

    I dont know who are "The Neighbourhood’s" group... but they used Plushy's "Sex Bomb" for their new music clip :-)

    Watch The Neighbourhood’s “Lurk” Video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKP-y8as5v4

    In today’s world of endless access to music, some genres are falling behind. Hip-hop, pop, and electronic are growing with the internet, adapting to the increasing speed of music consumption and the new opportunities created by the online world. Rock music, it seems, isn’t keeping up. We don’t have many emerging rock stars, and the old format—a few singles, a few videos, and an album every couple of years—just doesn’t mesh with the fast pace of today’s world.

    The Neighbourhood is looking to do things differently. Lead singer Jesse Rutherford wants to make it cool to be in a band again. The California group has already conquered charts and sales numbers with hits like “Sweater Weather,” and now they’re looking to take a note from something hip-hop has been doing for years. They’re planning on dropping a mixtape.

    To go along with the announcement, the band has made a video for “Lurk” that features footage of Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko. It’s a routine that might leave you confused as to whether you should be taking it seriously or laughing at it. It’s also a routine that won Plushenko a gold medal. :hi_hi_hi:

    The Neighbourhood’s upcoming mixtape is called #000000 & #FFFFFF and it will be made available, for free, on Live Mixtapes. This isn’t some random rock remix album of leftovers and freebies that they’re calling “a mixtape.” They’re actually releasing a mixtape. Until then, check out the video for “Lurk” above and listen to “Silver” and “Unfair” here.


    Do you remember ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMIErbpN_ys Pony Bomb Routine It seems the Americans like Plushenko's Sex Bomb...
