2007-10-19* News of
Meanwhile there's still a chance, that Evgeni Plushenko will gladden
Russian audience in "local" ice. After talking with his trainer Alexei
Mishin, the president of the RFSF Valentin Pissiev reported that Zhenia
would very much like to compete at the Russian championship in St.
Petersburg on January 4th-8th where it will take place also the
selection for the European championships. However, if healthy does not
allow this, then Evgeni is ready to wait until the upcoming season.
Evgeni Plushenko will not compete at the ISU Grand Prix stage in Moscow,
at the best he will be ready for the Russian Nationals in Petersburg on
January. Read more...
Summary of Mishin's
says that Plushenko is doing well, that he is doing jumps now doubles
and triples. That right now, there is no pain and that he sees that
Evgeni really wants to get back on shape. He does not know for sure when
he will be back. Mishin is asked if maybe for Nationals since there will
take place in Petersburg. Mishin says that maybe Plushenko will do
Nationals, he says that Plushenko is skating well and that right now he
is doing some shows (I guess he meant the Korea ones) and that when he
comes back they will start training even harder.
Finally he says "You want to watch? Then come. We have no secrets for
Evgeni Plushenko does not
want to quit figure skating nor politics.
The figure skating Olympic
champion Evgeni Plushenko is going to combine politics and sports. About
this Plushenko, who is a deputy on the legislative assembly of
St.-Petersburg, informed journalists on Wednesday before the first
session of the city parliament after summer vacations.
"I have started
trainings. I had a surgery on the summer. Now I'm training doubles and
triples jumps and I will prepare new programs. Right now I don't want to
quit neither amateur figure skating, nor the legislative assembly ",
Evgeni is releasing a book
called (if the translation is the correct)...
out on September 3rd.
It's 192 pages with 16 picture-pages, costs 157 roubles and
they are doing a first printing of 30 000 copies.
Plush will present the book on September 5th on the
International Book Fair (I'm guessing Moscow?), and he'll do
a radio show.
participate the show on the 15th in Korea. He will enter
Korea on the 13th, by the flight which will arrive at 11: 10
It says that Plushenko's sister Elena will have twins this September, so
Evgeni is all happy to have two new nieces/nephews soon and it's
flooding Elena with toys.
Here it says that Plush will do the 07/08 season (I guess they are
talking about the Euros/Worlds)
skip this season?
According to «SportKom»,
the figure skating Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko will probably skip
According to the figure skater coach Alexei Mishin, there had been some
complications as a result of Plushenko's recent knee surgery. The
trainer has not gone into details about this but just added that "from
the knee that was operated, it starting to grow some bone". Probably,
for this reason, the Olympic Champion missed some exhibitions
performances in Hungary and has refused to participate in the project of
the First channel «Stars on an ice».
Well it's not really surprising, I mean we know Plushenko has competed
with a lot a LOT of pain for years and usually a show with pain is not
problem for him, so when he decided to cancel the shows in Hungary, it
did seemed obvious this time it was very serious.
We'll wait to see if Mishin will say more about this.
- It says that
Plushenko may need another surgery on the meniscus due complications
from his first surgery.
- Ari says right now Plushenko is in Germany and there is a big chance
he may need another surgery on the knee. Says that after the surgery
Evgeni felt great and he wanted to train right away, and because of
overworking there were some problems.
- As for the competitive season, Ari said that there are some problems
but they are being solved now and the important thing is that Evgeni is
still very disposed to train and he will do so in September and it's
very likely he'll compete by January.
- The producers of DOI2 have said that they won't disclosed information
about Evgeni's health and that everyone will find out about him later.
- The tden.ru article mentions a legal problem with DOI2 that the DOI2
wants Evgeni to pay them because he has withdrawn from the project but
Evgeni is saying that the reason he is not doing it it's because he
can't skate at all.
- Evgeni says that what happened with his knee is that he started
training, and as a result there was some bone growing and his foot got
very swollen. So he left for Munich where the doctors decided what to
do. He's had an injection so far and if in a couple of days that does
not work, then he'll need surgery. Doctors had forbidden him to skate or
walk and he is getting constants massages.
Zhenya is not coming
to Hungary. Something bad has happened with his knee but even
IceVision is reluctant to release any information (they say they do
not know the details). There will be a press conference on it on
Wednesday the 22nd so I suppose we just have to wait.
What’s all set is that TT/MM are coming to Budapest to replace
Zhenya at the Syma Hall and Julia Sebestyen will also perform in
that show. The other two shows are cancelled altogether.
In summary it says
that Plushenko's knee is hurting again which is why his
participation in "Dancing on Ice" is in doubt.
It will be the third stage of Cup of Russia (local) to
be held in Kazan on November 12th where Plushenko will first compete –
says Ari Zakarian in this article.
It is also said that his trainings are planned to commence on August
15th where he is going to join the Mishin camp in Jaca.
It's Ari saying one more that Plush will start training in August
15th that right now he is doing physical rehab in St. Petersburg and
that if everyhting goes to plan, he'll do:
- Cup of Russia in Khazan
- ISU Cup of Russia in Moscow
- Russian Natioanals
- Europeans Championship in Zagreb
- Worlds Championships in Gothenburg
And Ari remind everyone that Evgeni is coming back this season in order
to see if he can keep going and do a "good work" at Olys 2010, Ari said
that for Evgeni "good work" means only winning.

his title today. He had several injections before
trainings and before the short program but he reacted bad
to this and it made him feel sick. "I want to say
for my fans right now I'm really sorry. I will definitely
try to come back next season, and I'm looking forward to
Olympic Games next year and be healthy". I think he
did a right decision, his health is most important and we
all now he come back, "the old" Evgeni we are
used to see. Three unexpected took medals this year,
(such things can happen when Plushenko is out of
competition;) the Gold medal went to Stephane Lambiel, he
is a great skater, also one of my favourites, my other
favourite Johnny Weir was 4th, and our Swedish Kristoffer
B. ended at 14th place, very well done! But I had never
seen a competition like this, everyone did several
mistakes and falls...the ice was bad. Evgeni...take some
rest now and take care of your injurys, we love you!!! I
Evgeni only finished 3rd after the short program with
73.28 points. Skating to his program "Moonlight
Sonata". The reason is that he fell on the quad and
he lost to many points by it. His score is now 111.26
overall. First is Stephane Lambiel who did a strong
program as well as Brian Joubert who is second. That
means that Evgeni needs to gain 7.02 points more in the
free skate then the others to win. Wich is possible since
he could get often 20-30 points more overall than the
second placed skater but this time it could be difficult
since he is not in very good health. He had been back on
the ice for only two weeks and he is in a bad, bad
condition because of his groin injury and hip, "
besides his ordinary knee and back problem " , so it
could be difficult. He is a strong fighter and since the
competition is in Russia he wants to skate anyway, and
win of course, and we hope for the best, even if he don't
win, we know he is the CHAMPION!!! But we hold our
thumbs. The free program is on Thursday. Our Swedish
skater Kristoffer Berntsson ended at number 13, which is
good for him. But my heart
is in Russia;) Parts of this news is from :

Today VM in Moscow begins. Petra mailed me this morning
and told me that Evgeni has a groin injury and maybe he
won't skate, but as she said, he is strong, and he
skated! So the men qualification is now over and Evgeni
remained first with 151.90 points. The qualification
points will count 25% of the score and Evgeni will go
with 37.97 points to the short program tomorrow. Evgeni -
take care of your injury, and win tomorrow. Sweden hold
their thumbs for you!!! Source:
