Discussion in 'Great Skate Debate' started by Jenna, Aug 24, 2010.
Didn't Mishin just speak about Plushenko regarding Sochi? The ISU is not playing any games..
Not surprised to hear this.
There was no appeal. The headline of the thread is incorrect. The text of the ISU said no appeal so no eligibitly and it is final. But does final mean permanent forever?
FYI, this ISU bulletin and an Associated Press newswire article was posted earlier today in the "Plushenko won't go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport over his ineligibility" thread in GSD -- starting on the bottom of page 2: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=74473&page=2
Probably for the best, although I am sure he would have dearly loved to compete at home. Perhaps this is a chance for him to lend his expertise and experience to some young up and comer skater who could really use some advice from someone with his experience.
How was his appeal refused if he never filed? Sloppy journalism...
I assume this skater would be a Misihin student so maybe Gachinsky.
He didn't appeal anything, i saw.
Sorry for the confusion. By writing "appeal" in the thread title, I meant the possibility of an appeal. It was not worded well.
The possibility was not refused either. He had the possibility, he did not use it. Period.
So the title is misleading.
Actually, I came across an article today, I can post a link to it if anyone is interested later, but a simple google search brought up this article that says that they are still planning to compete in Sochi, they have a plan, and said something along the lines of... it is too early to reveal it yet. However, they are still continuing in their "plan" for Sochi....and it also mentions something about them going to the ISU asking for their eligibility back or something, I'm spewing this out totally from memory now, but yea...
so I guess take it how you like it :S
