The king is gone. Long live the king!



Evgeni Plushenko was unable to continue his performance at the Olympics.

Several times the operated spine did not allow him to do this.

In general, the appearance of Eugene at the Olympics is worthy of not only respect, but of royal honors. This is true patriotism. After all, he did not go for a medal, prizes and respect. All this in his abundance. One side. And on the other hand, he could end every jump with a disabled person who was chained to a wheelchair at best. However, he went on the ice.

It is no secret that, to put it mildly, there is no success in this form of figure skating in our country.

FM-2013
Maxim Kovtun - 17 place.

EURO-2014
Maxim Kovtun - 5 place.

Obviously, it was necessary to somehow save the situation. And Eugene did what few did in his place. He started anew training and went on the ice. And trampled Chan. And contributed to the command "gold". The first "gold" of Russia at the Olympics. The act of a man, a citizen, a fighter. For me personally, this is akin to entering the tank with the last grenade. There is no war, but we were all for Plushenko. Whole country. And, a person who is so risky in the name of the prestige of his country is worthy of not only respect. It is unlikely that we will be able to assess what it cost him two performances in team competitions. But - are required.

Yevgeny, thank you, thank you for your pain in a twisted back, for the first “gold” for the country, for your heroism.

Everyone who has seen it, and who is able to understand and appreciate it, we all say thank you to you. May God grant you health and long life. You are the king of this Olympiad.

The king is not the one with the most medals. This is the one who can act like a king. In accordance with the conscience, honor and dignity.

Long live the King Plushenko! And thanks again from all of us.

      I want to object to you! The athlete may have expected to perform and win. He's cocked, that's fine. But this is where the trainers, doctors looked !!! They that did not see the condition of the athlete? So what kind of specialists are they then? Although Kovtun would not have won, he would have gained such necessary experience! Or maybe in the prizes would be ... Now we do not know.

            The Olympic disgrace of Russia!


            The main Olympic disgrace of Russia is a certain part of its fans, who are just waiting for how to throw mud at our athletes from the couch, if they fail and get ambushed when they succeed.

            As for Plushenko, he is a hero and this is without a doubt!

            All who say about Kovtun - do not understand anything in principle, the main thing for them is to express their dissatisfaction.

            Well let's estimate
            Kovtun goes to the Olympic Games, and in the teams he falls / makes mistakes / shows a weak program (we look at his results at international competitions) and gets fifth place, the situation could be repeated in the free program, since all the favorites from other countries would certainly go there. Accordingly, Trankov and Kolosozhar would be forced to perform the following hire in the team ..... Question. What is the likelihood of gold in such a situation with the weakest link in the male form? Or at least silver?

            Well, the fact that Kovtun would definitely not have taken anything in the individual is as clear as God's day. So with the arrival of Plushenko, we only acquired, and let Kovtun show his level at least in Europe.

            So, Zhenya is a hero! Thank him for everything and a speedy recovery!

              Though I don’t water anyone with mud - but questions are piling up -
              Where are our medals ?? Having the opportunity to train before playing games on all tracks - had to memorize every turn by heart - this is not.
              Plushenko is certainly a great skater - but if I know that my back hurts and I can break, I don’t climb to the bar. I’d go as an assistant coach, if I wanted so much for the Olympics, and so, maybe some sort of young skater broke off with the trip and did not start his career ...

                And what did you personally do for sports to ask for it ?! Do you sponsor a sports section or are your children in sports boarding schools in the first roles?
                You know, blaming the simplest. But the one who really does something for sports does the least thing he does.

                  We, the audience, are not obligated to love athletes. Love for athletes comes when there is a positive result of their work and is replaced by hostility when negative results appear. Plushenko and Rudkovskaya spoiled the whole country for their upcoming tour of the cities, publicized themselves to the detriment of young athletes. Naturally, with their influence, other athletes will not openly say anything (so far) so as not to lose the remaining opportunities. This is the situation in our country.

                    You know. From a fan of our motorist I heard a beautiful phrase.
                    "When a team is at the top, everyone at once supports it and all its fans. But when things go hard, many of them turn away. Are they fans? If children start bringing triplets from school instead of fives, you turn away from them?"

                    These athletes have done more for the country than you, and you can only blame them.

                    Please publish your tax return here ?! You paid a lot of personal income tax ?! And how many athletes can be fed for this ?!
                    And then people like you can only "Yakat" when you talk about good deeds. And "Poke" when you talk about the bad.
                    And please study the income and expense items of the budget, so that you do not hit yourself in the chest and say that you have deducted a "bunch" of money for athletes.
                    And yet, yes, do not use the word "OUR". Speak first of all for yourself and YOUR tax deductions.

                      What is this single-brazen tone? Your tax return requirements look at least silly. Everything that is built in Sochi, built on OUR! money. Oh, how they got there, that's another question. Either Gazprom robbed US with incredible gas tariffs, or that money was simply stolen from OUR wallet, or we honestly work, each in our place, we pay income tax. By the way, Plushenko became Plushenko also on OUR money. And if he knew (and he knew) about his problems long before the start of the JI, then he would invest in youth and give all his experience. So no. His shirt is closer to the body.

                  For example, I pay taxes at least. And for 44 years of work experience I paid, I think, enough to ask, not from Plushenko, God forbid, Plushenko is a hero, but from the leaders of the sport: "Where are the new buns, where are the brass, where are the modern Tretyakov who are not running headlong to the West. here they will wipe the snot and teach (at the state expense) to play, run, jump, etc.? And, gentlemen, sports leaders?

                    Have you looked at your taxes? Pension, Social Insurance, Transport tax. And personal income tax is a trifle diverging into hundreds of budget expenditures. Most athletes abroad live on advertising contracts and prize money from performances. State support there at the national team level is even minimal.
                    And so citizens do not write such nonsense that they pay athletes with their taxes.
                    And the tax burden in Europe is much larger than the Russian one.
                    And respect for me cause fathers who lead their children in the section, and not who are taught from the couch to lead the country.

                      31231 you think the Russian people in vain for a herd that has no right to ask anyone in our country in vain, and your comparison of athletes competing at the Olympics with children studying at school is, to put it mildly, incorrect. Now, just, our biathletes justified themselves according to the full program (they didn’t even enter the first 40), and if NPP engineers had not done their job as well? Why should we pity and love them? For their laziness? Good parents even smash the same students for deuces.

        We work and pay taxes for the training of athletes (construction and maintenance of sports facilities, training of trainers and athletes themselves, maintenance of sports officials, etc., etc.) Therefore, we have every right to ask for low results.

        Once again, for the faint-hearted: study the experience of Europe and America. Who makes the main material contribution to the education of athletes and their further maintenance at their peak.

          Classic!
          As soon as someone tries to declare their right to ask for the result (at least from the authorities, at least from the athletes with the help of which this government promotes and raises its rating), or not even ask, but to express their dissatisfaction with the failed results, the pro-authorities immediately begin to fool around and defamate those who ask.

There is least of all sports in this situation, but PR, immoderate ambitions, unreasonable hopes and expectations, decisions dictated by personal interests and non-"sports" behavior of both the athlete himself and the leaders, coaches and doctors more than enough.
            And do not talk about tragedy. In sports, nobody is pulled by force.
            Yes and beyond the sport of tragedy more than enough. For example, after several years of working with pneumatic tools at the factory, I also don’t feel hands. Also now I can’t work in my specialty.

        I do my job - the athletes do my job - I get a salary (just imagine the same), but if the "end product" of my work is a product, then theirs are medals and records.
        If I stop producing goods, they will not understand me, they will stop paying money and will undergo all kinds of obstruction in the form of dismissal. In your opinion, can I kick a bolt at work and should everyone love me for this?
        If you carefully read my first post (and you obviously did not read it carefully) I can repeat myself - I did not doused anyone with anything, but asked the question - where are our medals? (or is it a sin to ask an athlete about medals?)

I talk about it this way because I know that I myself was in a similar situation. For his child he bought sports ammunition, and accessories, at his own expense, travel, at his own expense, or a sponsor (if you're lucky). There is no money to travel the child in flight, and usually those who have babos, or dad’s sponsors of trainers, Well, in the end, when the competition takes place, then these daddy's little daughters-daughters, when they meet a worthy opponent, simply lose. And the arrogance flies, but that’s not all, the judges announce that my dad’s son won, (at inter-regional competitions).
    And at such a shame-competition, I personally attended, one guy who was tried to sue was defended. So why do we need such a sport ????

      I completely agree with you. I reached my sporting heights back in Soviet times, and the costs from my parents were minimal, and there were more than enough opportunities to train. And now in our town for 54 thousand inhabitants - one (paid) outdoor ice rink, one (paid) pool, one (free) stadium. And everything about equipment, travel to training camps and competitions falls on the shoulders of parents. Sports schools survive despite the conditions. And how much do parents need to invest to equip young talent? This is incomprehensible to the mind! And Plushenko? So why talk about it? He made a name for himself, but forgot about the country. So maybe he is right, judging by her attitude to SPORT (not the image of sports, namely SPORT).

    What happened is something - what we were told only about the official version is a fact.
    The fact that Kovtun could fail too ...
    The fact that they are now watered with guam and they say that with a pillar instead of Plushenko we would take gold - only shows that from the hero to the shit, a large part of the population has a very short path.

    But why didn’t Plushenko be removed from the individual due to injury and did not put Kovtun in advance?
    Why did the Olympic quota selection fail?
    Unfortunately, these figures are unlikely to be asked by the officials of figure skating, since they are now on a horse, the number of medals the skaters will take will once again allow officials not to answer uncomfortable questions.

          Andrey, I don’t even argue, that's right! I spoke in relation to this situation. As a result, we were completely without anyone. And you must admit that now we would not know how Kovtun would have acted. And suddenly, this is the Olympics! And the rivals are wrong, and he could get together. Where do you get Olympic experience? Did you expect that young Lipnitskaya will shine so?

        According to the olympiad.
        In terms of the number of medals, we do not look very bad, but in terms of quality, there are no words. But this is most likely historically formed, "we will throw our hats."

        Quasimodo is Baturin. The type from the point of view of psychiatry is the most original. It was with money, and Rudkovskaya naturally decided to have something, but didn’t take into account quasimodines, so she didn’t have much and decided to retrain for the younger generation (Plushenko). He will be seven years younger than her. So after a quasimode to whom Yanke could not be steered, now he steers in full.

          Knowing how everything happened before the OI, he concluded for himself:

          There are 2 groups of 1st Explicit Applicants and 2nd Applicants:

          1. Swedes. Canadians, Americans
          2. Finns. Czechs, Slovaks.

          Between them, we, because until 1 we simply do not reach the number, well, we are ahead of the second because All the same, our level is a bit higher. Plus we play at home.

          But after watching yesterday's game ..... no words ..... I really don't know what 2 words .. from how many floors "Zinetula" brought "into their brains ... but.
          come out. damn it, pros .. on pokatushki-amusement .. rolled two and that's it .... let's indulge. but then ..... they can’t get together.
          There is no protection at all, the Swedes. By the way, the same ... the Czechs "cut" like butter.
          Radulov generally played alone, with himself and with those who got in the way.
          All the other guys from the KHL. who performed so well ... now ... a free app to the top five.

          Generally .. they push us .. the very .. "I can not."

          Well, about "figure skating", it was a tremendous PR ... so the rumor was resolved that ... "on TV, the MOST MAIN, MOST IMPORTANT. Well, and so on in the same style of" no one in the world ".. COMPETITIONS"
          And that all other competitions sucks belay

          They just can’t admit to themselves that in spite of the most grandiose SHOW-PUMPU with the discovery and acceptance of everyone and everything (they still come back to everything like that ... it’s not enough) ...... the pancake infrastructure was built for everyone ... ..that I bring the comments of one of the members of the forum ... I already want to cry ... for everyone wassat

          So ... The Olympics according to the results for us will be FAILURE !!!
          The only place where they could get gold was men's skiing, well, figure skating ... everything ... in the remaining 9 profiles), at best, only medals.

          Unfortunately .. but this is a fact ... That is why such harsh statements from people about this. Because "hooters-hopes" and "hooters-slogans" .. are not the same thing.

      To lose something, you must first at least claim it. As shown by the performances of other single skaters claiming to be included in the national team, they do not claim anything. Only "disabled" Plushenko could compete for some kind of medal, and he sacrificed his health to try to do it.
      And it is not his fault that Russia was able to break through only 1 place in men's single skating.

      So there’s nothing to run into a person.

        You cannot perform at full strength for health reasons, you do not have the opportunity to give all your best to the end - there is nothing to do at the Olympic Games. Moreover, there is only one place in the team and is occupied not by sporting results, but by past merits. Plushenko excuses (but does not justify) only that "Putin asked" And yet, if it were not for his own and his wife's exorbitant ambitions, then Putin's "request" would not have any effect.

    NAGANO-1998. FIGURE SKATING. OKSANA GRISCHUK (RUSSIA)

    In Nagano, Oksana Grischuk, who was paired with Evgeny Platov in dance couples competitions, became a two-time Olympic champion. But only after the end of the Games it became known what difficulties the athlete had to face.

    Before the main start of the four-year anniversary, Oksana broke her wrist, but did not even allow herself to miss the Olympics. She came forward with an unhealed injury, and they say that she even hid her from her partner and coach Tatyana Tarasova. One way or another, the skater showed courage, and together with Platov to this day they remain the only two-time Olympic champions in ice dancing.
    TURIN-2006. FIGURE SKATING. Tribute to Zhang (China)
    At the Olympic Games in Turin, a real sporting feat was made by the Chinese figure skater Dan Zhang, who paired with Hao Zhang in the competition of sports couples. After a short program, they were inferior to Tatyana Tatmyanina and Maxim Marinin and were forced to take risks at random.

    In one of these moments, performing an outburst of four turns, the risk did not materialize, and Zhang fell onto the ice from a sufficiently high height. During the fall, she hit her knee on the ice, and then crashed her back into the side. The pain was so severe that the skater hardly rose from the ice, and the program was stopped. It was all the more surprising to learn after a few minutes that Zhang decided to go back to the venue and continue the fight. This moment was the culmination of the competition of sports couples. The rules did not stipulate what actions the judges should take, but, seeing the reaction of the public and the desire of the athlete herself, they allowed the couple to prove their program to the end.

    The Zhangs not only completed the competition, but also won silver medals. The standing room applauded the Chinese couple. As it turned out later, during the fall, Tribute sprained knee ligaments. The skater was forced to miss a month due to an injury and only at the last moment managed to recover for the World Cup.

    About doctors: after such an operation (replacement of the intervertebral disc), the patient is assigned a third group of disability for 3 year, followed by a repeated medical examination. This means that the person is NOT WORKABLE at this time! He is given time to recover. At this time, he can walk with support. What are the jumps? Plushenko could simply become a wheelchair user for life! Any doctor knows this when passing a medical examination! Most likely the medical commission was "asked" to let it pass. Next. The country must know its heroes! Who specifically decided to send Plushenko instead of Kovtun?
    1. According to the results of the Chechen Republic of Kovtun-1, Pl-2.
    2. Kovtun is young, he needs to be "run in", prepared with the next OI. With all due respect to E. Plyushchenko, he has already done everything for Russia, his name is already inscribed in golden letters in our sports history, but we need to leave in time. We don't put V. Tretyak on the gate?
    3. How was the medical commission? Even before sending the bus driver on a flight, he undergoes a medical examination.

The fact that ONE man was found who tried this world and its material boundaries on a fortress speaks of the man’s unbending will, unique qualities that happen once every hundred years. Doctors watched, it was Evgeny’s decision - to overcome pain, to overcome himself, to overcome illness - to do the impossible, and he did !!!!! Nobody has ever done more than him!
    And here you don’t have to be a specialist, there would be no prizes, if not for Eugene, it is enough to look at the tournament tables for recent years.

      The fact that Plushenko, all broken and broken, went to the Olympics is not a sport, it is ambition. Whose ambitions - everyone can draw a conclusion for himself. "They asked" whether Plushenko, or he himself decided: it is necessary to perform, at least in the team competition. And there, even to hell with horns.
      Rudkovskaya, I think, also could not do without influence on Plushenko. It is obvious that Yana put the maximum of her "charm" and "influence".
      And who and how "influenced" Rudkovskaya and what and how much promised her for the fact that the semi-disabled Plushenko will be noted in the team competition - one can only guess.
      PS <Alexei Mishin, the coach of Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko, said on Thursday that it makes no sense for his pupil to continue his sports career. Plushenko withdrew from the individual tournament in Sochi.
      "I don't see the point in this. When I said that Plushenko could still return after the Olympic Games in Sochi, I had only one possibility in mind - if figure skating is included in the Paralympic Games program">

        Plushenko is an outstanding athlete, still not focusing on this incident, let's recall his previous achievements
        Of course, it’s hard now to say something, did he have to go to the Olympics or not,
        Now each side will have its own theory of conspiracy, they will analyze the record of his jump every second, examining and proving whether or not to damage his spine again, I’ll say that he continued to play sports with such injuries and achieved a lot - he is honored it’s a pity that everything ended like this, now you can’t prove anything to anyone (even if you really have a back) it looks very much like artificial (received another Olympic medal and left undefeated) - the Japanese set a new world record (by points) Plushenko simply I couldn’t compete with him, but I didn’t want to lose (this will be the statement of the second side)
        In any case, this is not what was expected of him, but at the same time it smells of an incomprehensible combo - beautifully or not - he has to live with it until the end of his life, only his statement that he fought to the end - I do not believe it, but respecting him as a great athlete, all this glamor in which he lives the last 5-7 years - apparently left his mark on him.

          What did you expect from him? For him to skate, somewhere in the middle of the program, he fell and would be carried away on a stretcher and he would spend several years, atom and his whole life in a wheelchair? You therefore do not believe? The man took second place in the short program, giving Chan and only an unsuccessful drop cut him off from the silver or bronze of his last Olympics, and whoever thinks Kovtun would get at least bronze - a stubborn critic. See performances at the World Cup and European Championship.

            Athletes who won medals in spite of injuries.
            NAGANO-1998. FIGURE SKATING. OKSANA GRISCHUK (RUSSIA)
            In Nagano, Oksana Grischuk, who was paired with Evgeny Platov in dance couples competitions, became a two-time Olympic champion. But only after the end of the Games it became known what difficulties the athlete had to face.
            Before the main start of the four-year anniversary, Oksana broke her wrist, but did not even allow herself to miss the Olympics. She came forward with an unhealed injury, and they say that she even hid her from her partner and coach Tatyana Tarasova. One way or another, the skater showed courage, and together with Platov to this day they remain the only two-time Olympic champions in ice dancing.
            NAGANO-1998. SKIING. HERMANN MAYER (AUSTRIA)
            The courage, stamina and courage of some athletes can only be admired. They got to the medals through incredible pain. The Austrian skier Hermann Mayer at the Nagano Olympics, for example, flew off the track at a speed of 100 km / h, hit his head on the ground and flew through all the barriers.
            The fall of the Austrian looked so terrible that most athletes in his place would never have returned to the track. But Mayer, despite numerous bruises and fear, did not withdraw from the competition and again went to the start.
            As a result, it was in Nagano that the Austrian won both of his gold medals at the Olympics: in the supergiant and giant slalom. Fans after this act began to call him Horminator.
            TURIN-2006. FIGURE SKATING. Tribute to Zhang (China)
            At the Olympic Games in Turin, a real sporting feat was made by the Chinese figure skater Dan Zhang, who paired with Hao Zhang in the competition of sports couples. After a short program, they were inferior to Tatyana Tatmyanina and Maxim Marinin and were forced to take risks at random.
            In one of these moments, performing an outburst of four turns, the risk did not materialize, and Zhang fell onto the ice from a sufficiently high height. During the fall, she hit her knee on the ice, and then crashed her back into the side. The pain was so severe that the skater hardly rose from the ice, and the program was stopped. It was all the more surprising to learn after a few minutes that Zhang decided to go back to the venue and continue the fight. This moment was the culmination of the competition of sports couples. The rules did not stipulate what actions the judges should take, but, seeing the reaction of the public and the desire of the athlete herself, they allowed the couple to prove their program to the end.
            The Zhangs not only completed the competition, but also won silver medals. As it turned out later, during the fall, Tribute sprained knee ligaments. The skater was forced to miss a month due to injury and only at the last moment managed to recover for the World Cup

              Do you even know what a back injury in skaters is? My friend wears bolts in his back. At first, as usual, he dragged gravity. And then, when three of the four broke down, he began to take care.

            ANCUVER-2010. FIGURE SKATING. Joannie Rochette (CANADA)
            A terrible tragedy happened in the personal life of Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette a few days before the start of the women's singles competition at the 2010 Olympics. Joanie's mother died, who specially came to support her in Vancouver from her native Montreal. If the skater had withdrawn from the competition, no one would have dared to condemn her, but she gathered her will into a fist and went to the start.
            After a short program, Joannie cried in front of the eyes of 11 thousand spectators, who at that moment also could not hold back their tears. And according to the results of the free program, it became clear that she won the bronze medal, which she dedicated to her mother. All Canada was proud of her, the whole world was delighted with the strength of spirit of Joannie. Following the results of the Games, she received an award for courage and the will to win.
            VANCOUVER 2010. SKIING. PETRA MAYDICH (SLOVENIA)
            Even the gold of Canadian hockey players could not overshadow the feat of the Slovenian skier Petra Maidic at the Olympics in Vancouver. She was considered one of the main favorites in the fight for victory in the classic sprint, but the situation changed when at the warm-up Majdic did not fit into the speed turn, falling into a ravine and crashing into a tree. A skier suffered a fracture of four ribs and damaged a lung. Her continued participation in the competition was a big question.
            However, Petra continued to fight. She held all competitions, starting with qualification, overcoming acute pain. She was led to the start by hand, and after each of the four finishes she hardly left the track. The Slovenian was especially hard during her last performance, after which she was taken away from the arena in her arms, but already in the status of the owner of a bronze award! Majdic was already taken away from the awarding ceremony in a wheelchair and after some time was taken to one of the Vancouver clinics by helicopter.
            By the decree of the President of Slovenia, Maidic was awarded the Golden Order of Merit. As for the medal, then, as the skier said, for her she became not a bronze, but a diamond. Note that this was the first ever award for Slovenia in cross-country skiing at the Olympic Games.
            SOCHI 2014. SKIING. JUSTINA KOVALCHIK (POLAND)
            Four years later, Justina Kowalczyk was in Meydich's place, who competed with the Slovenian in Vancouver and then took second place. In late January, she received an injury to her left foot, and already in Sochi, after a duathlon, where she took sixth place, Kovalchik performed an X-ray examination, which revealed that she had a multilevel fracture of the foot bone. Perhaps at that moment Justina recalled Maidich's feat and decided to start the classic style in the 10 km race.
            As a result, the Polish woman won the gold medal, ahead of her closest rival by 18 seconds. “I drank the medicine before the race and did not feel pain in my leg. It was very difficult for me to train for the last three weeks because of my broken leg. In Poland, many discussed my situation. I am very glad that I found the strength to win. It was one of the most difficult races in my life, especially the last two kilometers. There was a rise, the sun was melting the snow. I endured as best I could, "Kowalczyk said after the finish.

          Who can argue that Plushenko has merits for the country. But yesterday he ruined himself. Plushenko got to the Olympics "by pulling", losing the Russian championship and not going to Europe, according to the results of a test run, which no one has seen. But even here, not all was lost. He could have gone as an Olympic champion, but one medal was not enough for him. Now he will be remembered as a person because of whose ambitions Russia will be represented by only one skater at the 2018 Olympics.
          Generation change in sports is normal, the main thing is to leave on time. His coach says that back problems appeared immediately after the team ones, but Plushenko still showed up for an individual. And as soon as he starred "with a back injury" he was giving interviews from the TV screens, he was advertising his March tour of Russia.
          And what a shame, neither to the fans, nor to the boys, who, unlike him in the pre-Olympic series, showed real results, but lost the opportunity to speak at the Olympics, he not only did not apologize, but also said that he had nothing to apologize for.

              Only Plushenko himself has complete information, neither his supporters nor his opponents can only believe or not believe. I only analyze what I see and hear. And I see that an athlete who has just withdrawn from the competition due to back pain, which is difficult to sit with in a normal situation, immediately after an injury, is treated and gives an interview and advertises a show that takes a little over three weeks and where, apparently, the back is not needed.
              I also remember how many times this athlete withdrew from the competition if something went wrong, and tomorrow the injury miraculously passed, as he refused to go to the official tournament to play for the country, and went to the commercial to play for money. I remember Plushenko not shy about pouring mud on Yagudin and Kovtun, who had the nerve to beat him, as I missed the pre-Olympic training. And I remember how he got to the Olympics.
              But wretched ... Wretchedly turn the Olympiad, on which the honor of the country depends, into a booth for the sake of self-promotion.
              And what happened, sorry, looks like petty revenge for the defeat at the Russian championship or the desire to attract additional attention.

He does not even doubt a decent result with a favorable set of circumstances. But there is another aspect - this is the guilt of those who agreed to Plushenko’s participation with full knowledge of his health information. I'm not longing for a lost medal in the team event. I am sorry for the guys who won the Russian championship, performed with dignity in Europe and flew past the Olympics. And the experience gained on it would be very useful to them, regardless of the result. And so ... In addition to disappointment and a sullen disbelief in justice, so far this educated decision of those in power has not raised anything in them. So this act comes back to us both in future performances and in future skaters. And now we just have a donut hole. It is a pity that the honored guy agreed to this adventure, he predicted the fate of young boys. Yes, and disappointed the fans

        The truth of the day is such that they are sent to perform, mainly, not the best athletes, but those who pay more. Those who defend Plushenko so vehemently, want to say that there was no better athlete? Who won the Russian championship with us, do not remind !? Or did you forget that at the beginning It was the young athlete who wanted to send to perform! ?? Forgot how the same Plushenko, because of this, broke up and got hurt! ??
        Yes, you can’t reduce the merits of this athlete, but there is his fault, his egoism was the reason that we have, he wanted to show himself, well done, SHOWN! I am offended to hear the statements of some people that supposedly in the team performances it was Plushenko who achieved the victory of our team, this is complete nonsense, the team won! You need to be able to leave on time and with dignity!

    Shot poddyh. Olympic champion Aleksey Yagudin called the Russian skater Evgeni Plushenko, who had withdrawn from the lone skaters tournament at the Olympics, uncompetitive. As Yagudin said, Plushenko said that he was ready to play only in the team tournament, but not in the personal one.
    NTV Plus commentator Georgy Cherdantsev commented on Evgeni Plushenko’s decision to withdraw from the men's figure skating singles tournament at the Olympics in Sochi.
    As you know, Plushenko made such a decision shortly before his appearance in the short program. Later, the 31-year-old skater said that he could not go on the ice because of back pain.
    “It is a complete feeling that the whole story with Plushenko is a vile, planned setup. I don’t even want to delve into. God be their judge.
    There would be an even more unpleasant aftertaste if Plushenko took a medical certificate immediately after the command, while there was still the possibility of replacement, ”wrote Cherdantsev
    Sergey Voronov and Maxim Kovtun were declared reserve for the Olympic tournament from Russia. The latter is the current champion of the country. However, now it’s too late to declare a short program for the reservist.
    Vladimir Zhirinovsky promised to “disperse” the Figure Skating Federation, if her bet on the titled Evgeni Plushenko, as a leader in single skating, would be a failure.

      and without Rudkovsky would have done! Max his result in the short program is 97. At the Olympic Games he showed 91 - judging by yesterday's short program - he could only count on the “bronze”. he knew it beforehand. and the "gold" in the team he received the labor of the team.

    One feels the muddy handwriting of Rudkovskaya.
    Gold in individual competitions Plushenko did not shine and everyone understood this
    He cannot afford to leave with a bronze or even a pedestal, ahead of the Russian and world tour
    Yana began to actively earn money on his behalf, because a lot has been invested in promotion;

    If it were not for the team competition, Plushenko most likely would not have gone to the Olympics
    He needed fresh gold, but earned together, in a gangbang, you can freebie.
    I do not like Plushenko in that there is always some fuss around his name
    Now here he is in the role of a heroic victim

    Let him go young and stuff himself with cones, but that would be garlic ...

    Plushenko is not particularly judging, but he once again confirmed that he was no longer an athlete, but a showman ..
    Sad ...
    But there was more Arshavin in the country.
    Honor and praise to Maxim Kovtun. He declined to comment on the situation at the Olympic figure skating competitions. Decent behavior. I hope that at the next Olympics he will win his Olympic well-deserved medal. Sport is not only anatomy and physiology. Sport is Ethics, which Plushenko violated, but Kovtun - no.

      I fully support. My wife had a similar spinal operation, there is a whole year of restriction in everything. Any jumping is FORBIDDEN for life. He had an operation in February 2013 - not a year has passed. Any neuropathologist, even after graduation, will not take the responsibility of releasing him on the ice. What the federation of figure skating thought there remains a mystery, Zhirik correctly said - to disperse.
      I think everyone saw what Rudkovskaya sat nailed on the podium, and more recently there was an interview with them, where she showed herself to be maximalist. And the fact that she kicked her husband out on the ice for fame and money I have no doubt. They both knew that this could lead to disability and still trampled ... Well, come out on the team and take off, give Kovtun a try, or vice versa. And now a new operation and a moan on the box what kind of hero he is.
      Rudkovskaya's greed and thirst for glory ruined.

    And what a shame?

    Shame that put a disabled person? Or what 10 years could not prepare him a replacement?
    Or a shame that the quota for two participants was not pulled?

    No, great at you.

    Regarding the so-called ambitions - who has not seen - his problems, but in a press conference after Solchi's approval, none other than Putin said to the camera that "we will ask Plushenko to speak well." Is it a scrap or am I wrong?

    Farther. Yelling about the fact that without him would have won the team competition. Well, you learned howl. Now try to learn how to use the calculator. Subtract Plushenko from the total 19 points and add what Kovtun could bring to the piggy bank. How much, based on his place at the World Cup? 5 or 6?

    In the sports committee, we have a lot of freaks. But they know how to count. And winning Kovtun CR ... do not make my liver laugh. But the fact that not having shown himself outside the country, he already started talking about performances for another country - an indicator.

    Plushenko was a tit in his hands. Which can bring something unambiguously. And the Crane Kovtun in the sky is another question. So I understand the idiots from OCD. The Olympics are in the yard, and we are not ready as always.

    In general, with this approach we will go far unambiguously.

    I agree !!! Plushenko is a shame for our team! And he is not a king, but some kind of daffodil. Why explain to me to go to the Olympics with a sore back? In the hope of crawling through, they say, native walls, the judges will not find fault, but in fact in the team competition only three times, and his gold is the merit of Volosozhar and Trankov, and Yulenka Lipnitskaya. After the team competition, he realized that nothing could shine for him. He cannot do quarter jumps, and all his rivals twist out as they want, so the illness has come at the time! The intrigue on which he got to the Olympics may become clearer after the competition. Kovtun, when asked by correspondents: “Why was he not taken to the Olympics?”, Answered that all the comments were after the Olympics. Most likely he was given to understand that you do not belong here, but a place for the "king." So we got what we got. Plushenko is not, he is the gold medalist of the Olympics in team competitions, and will remain so. Still, they say that he is a prize-winner, and do not specify that in the team. And in the individual, alas, he could not have taken anything, and that would have been his shame. Plushenko not, but maybe this is Rudkovskaya's tip.

      At the team competition, he skated well, but it must be borne in mind that few countries are able to put out full-fledged teams and a significant part of them, hoping for medals, decided to save their first numbers. If there was still competition in the short program, then in the free-style for single men, the second squad consisted entirely. Hence the first place in Plushenko’s arbitrary. And in short he was only the second.

So Zhenya should be thanked for this medal, just like the rest of the skaters! And at the expense of whom he did not let in, whose place he took in the Olympic wrestling - TIME WILL READ! We will see how young guys will perform at the next European and World competitions, then we will see who was right!

    Let colleagues in order.
    1. The President asked Plushenko to speak at the Olympics a few years ago.
    2. After the Chechen Republic, it was announced that Kovtun would go, but the guy went to Che and decided that he should go PLYUSHCHENKO. He didn’t decide, but the officials.
    3. What kind of PR are you talking about if a person has such an injury. what do you think he? And didn’t understand that he could act disgustingly? So why would he end his career? because no one would have thought to condemn him if he refused. But the man went.
    4. Is Plushenko to blame for the fact that in addition to him there are no normal men of figure skaters in Russia. Let me remind you that Russia could not put more than one athlete, just because the quota did not allow. And quotas are given based on the achievements of the country. And them after the departure of Eugene was not.
    5 and the last. Our officials dragged PLYUSHCHENKO to the Olympiad because they made a bet on IT. They were afraid that in Skates we might be left without medals. and for our country it’s a shame. Women are very young Julia. How would she skate who knew? Yes, no one.
    Who knew Kovtun? Yes, no one. As a result, we could be left without medals in the male, female, and God knows how it would have happened in the doubles. The same thing in the team. So officials decided that only Plushenko is guaranteed to be able to fight for the victory. So they dragged him.
    Easy sitting in front of a TV set with chips and beer, yelling what an eccentric there is. To the letter M.
    I think so. What Plushenko did is worthy of respect. And I think that if he could ride, he. would roll

        He did not participate because he WAS CARRYING OUT. And he was asked by big uncles to return to Sochi.
        And why, apart from him, our country cannot give worthy skaters, this is not a question for him. Is not it.

      Sorry of course. But how do you explain Plushenko’s interview when he claimed to be 100% ready for the Olympics, showed his scars on his back, claiming that the spine was normal. They even showed a separate film about the operation. And all this information went in an avalanche immediately after the decision of the Olympic Committee to justify the violation of the charter.

        So I’ll answer ..
        So he thought he was ready.
        And in the team event, it showed.
        And the funny thing is that if there wasn’t this team, he would have skated his lonely ... he took the gold and left ... 7A you would have pissed boiling water here.
        And then it turned out that the load was increased 2 times more than usual. Well, I could not stand it .... So what? mix with shit?
        Who are you mixing? the person who took GOLD a few days ago? Just for the second time that his health has let us down?

          Nobody (as I think it’s possible for a man to personally blame Plushenko that he is such and such). He was persuaded and he agreed. His merit in the country in the field of sports and figure skating is obvious, it is important that he succumbed and took someone's place. Overestimated its capabilities it is bad as a result, a country without medals and it is watered by taking out its anger on it. Let's look at such things more objectively!

    Honestly, the situation is again not clear for Plushenko, all in bolts and prostheses, why go to the Olympiad in this form, especially since he already had the gold of the Olympiad in his asset, if he wanted to remind himself, he would skate a group one, and then on the same Kovtun was replaced, but perhaps he would not have won medals, but would have gained good experience and incentive to develop, and so the strongest minus morality. In general, Mudko begins to remind the well-known unfortunately, the former Minister of Defense Taburetkin also apparently does everything in his power to finish off the sport, but how else to explain this story with Plushenko, with Kuzmina who could not find a place in the team and as a result, the gold went to Slovakia , as young athletes should make their way to the national team, when in 99% of cases preference is given to veterans and do not care that there are already a lot of injuries and age. I am still wondering how Julia made her way, if there were an analogue of Plushenko, too, probably would have flown by. The army is being updated, it would be time for Russian sport to catch this trend.

      Actually, why did he have to go out on the ice in this state? In addition to Zhenya there were still candidates, without names, without titles, but they were just starting their way and participating in the Olympiad, as I already said, could spur them to self-improvement and work on themselves to achieve excellent results.

Let me remind you that Russia could not put more than one athlete, just because the quota did not allow. And quotas are given based on the achievements of the country. And them after the departure of Eugene was not.

It's a shame, but a young and very promising athlete could have played instead of him, and not the injured Plushenko, and that's not the point here " where did the coaches and doctors look ... "Money, comrades, money!" Because of this, there is no place for our young promising athletes in the Olympiad .....

Alas, he is disabled, even if he could skate, even if he won gold. No money is returned to health. Kritikanov please take a tour of traumatology or neurology.

This boy did not have to wait 30 years, he needed to get a prize in Europe and we would have a 2nd a ticket to the Olympic Games, but his result is 5th place. 5th place in Europe is 8-10th in the world. The team result, at best, is “bronze” and the shitty mood of the whole team of skaters, and there certainly would be no silver in the figured doubles. The decision on the participation of Plushenko was made by the coaching council of the federation and I very much doubt that Plushenko influenced this decision. I suppose I'm afraid that because of such situations our best will leave to play for other countries (and they will do it right). So let them leave for these countries with their parents at the age of 5-6. By the age and for their money they train and become at least prize-winners

And let’s for the fact that he couldn’t come forward, we will take away all the awards from him at the Russian competitions and, just in case, deprive him of his citizenship, you don’t respect Plushenko.

                You and I had a dialogue about Koftun, where you wrote that you wouldn’t go with such intelligence. That's exactly the comment I answered.
                I want to please you: -such as you do not send in intelligence !!!

                Your Plushenko then throws, then returns, then the injury is not ...
                As a commercial tour, so there is no injury, but as for the country, so all the penny !!!

                Do you want me to respect Plushenko? .... So you begin to respect Koftun in turn.

    But it seems to me that one can refuse the opportunity to speak at the Olympics, even at home, only in the most extreme circumstances, which, apparently, have come about in the case of Zhenya. Very sorry.
    And yet, in my opinion, Plushenko with his achievements has long proved to everyone that he is a real man, not a glamorous Schwal, man, stubborn, tough, able to set goals and achieve them. Reproach him for lack of character or lack of patriotism can only absolutely biased, blinded critic.
    I am waiting for the first to say that Plushenko had read Shenderovich and refused to raise Putin’s rating wassat
    And on my own behalf: Zhenya, health, good luck and thank you! Do not listen to anyone, you had the right to decide whether to go out on the ice. You have earned this right with your labor and victories. Thanks again! hi

    Here are the poems to the topic ...

    Some kind of scary evil
    (would pull them all hands for it!)
    Did not grease skis for Russian athletes
    Athletes fled, tried, but where there ...
    Cursed skis stuck even cry
    And this is only a small part of the setbacks.
    And then, all those same insidious reptiles
    They continued to build obstacles for athletes:
    Not so sharpened skates for hockey players
    That's not what the bobsledders suggested.
    Not those who gave mops shtob in korleng to play
    Framed Plushenko, fuck your mother!
    Turn on the TV to see about the medals
    And hear - the medals again profiled
    And text offscreen muddy tales
    On the topic of lack of proper lubrication
    Nothing ... They’ll come back and they will grease it as it should
    Votrut Vaseline in the hemisphere of the backside
    They will punish anally and exact in full
    For that country again in the ass!

    Plushenko, of course, went down in history and I do not dispute that, but the main thing is to leave in time and not hope for a miracle. And once you come out - then fight to the end, and not PR. And the words of Rudkovskaya "... He already did everything he could for this country ..." - I don't know how to evaluate at all. The first step towards the betrayal of the Motherland is the words "THIS COUNTRY". I do not like the country, get out of here from here to hell from geyropa !!!!

    Now the negative has gone to Evgeni Plushenko. The truth in this, right - wrong, could, could not, probably only he himself knows the Lord God. I don’t know, in my eyes, Eugene is an Olympic champion, a hard worker, who brought with the team of skaters one more GOLD medal to his RUSSIAN HOMELAND!
    Here it flashed that he was leaving
    waisson SU bought he is already going to Israel

    Blaming unproven ... well, somehow not decent.
    And about the fact that he was "going": firstly, perhaps he was going to undergo medical treatment or have a rest in Israel, and secondly, if "well-wishers" - compatriots EATED, he might leave altogether.

    Still would! If this continues to continue, if the bureaucrats, and not the achievements and the athlete’s uniform, decide at the moment who will be in the national team and who will not — all of our athletic youth will dump abroad.

Yes, already at this Olympiad how many have flown by healthy applicants? You put them all below "shame"? And Plushenko all did, Chana went around, even Chania went around by the sum of two appearances, brought 19 out of 20. If only each of our sportsmen brought one gold ...

    Yes, Plushenko failed. Overvalued myself. But I do not consider him guilty.

    But where were the coaches, starting from Mishin and ending with the coaches of the figure skating team? Where were the doctors?
    Why do none of them sprinkle ashes on their heads? Why not repent not only in this, but also in the fact that they did not give the young an opportunity to at least gain experience?

    I am a production worker and more than once, at the failure of my team, I considered myself guilty and wrote orders to myself. And these negative ..., fu, what a dirty nasty thing!

    I never evaluate by results. Much more said interviews and the condition of the athlete. Plushenko would not have questions if he left and said that he was guilty. He started talking about malaise, about the tour. Yes, yes, about some kind of tour around the country. By the way, on the same day, Kovalchik won gold with a broken leg.

    About where the youth are at the competition and what the old man is doing at the Olympics.
    Our old luge ranks 2nd. And look at Bjerndalen, gold again. How old is he? I wonder if he didn’t get the gold, would it be watered at home too?
    By the way, about the champion of Russia Kovtun, he wrote above at the World Cup and the European Championship crap, why are you so broke as if he took a high place here? The only where the jamb is, so why Plushenko was not replaced immediately after the command. But if someone watched the speeches, but not buttherit after posts on the Internet, then he knows that Plushenko felt normal after the team, there was a little discomfort during the performance on the team and that’s all. but already when he went to the individual room and rolled out there, he cracked several times and that's all ... That’s why I didn’t replace him, because he broke off with the back of the individual, and not after the team ...
    True, you just need to pour bile ...

    I am amazed how many people consider themselves specialists in sports, sports tactics and strategies, who are ready to easily justify anyone who has not justified HIS trust. Shame on you gentlemen.
    1. Injury Plushenko, and what, a lot of athletes at the Olympics without injuries. Almost all athletes have injuries of varying severity. Everyone is at risk, for that he is a high sport. Skier from Poland won gold with a broken leg!
    2. If Plushenko had not performed at team competitions, gold, and indeed there would be no medals there, this is 100%. Everyone can find their own balance of power in those competitions.
    3. To send Kovtun to the Olympics instead of Plushenko is a deliberate failure. Participation Ivy is certainly a risk, but a reasonable risk, since there is not much choice. He was told "must", he will answer "is". I think his personal ambitions were far from the first place, although ambitions are positive qualities for an athlete than negative ones. All athletes have ambitions, without this there are no victories.
    4. In general, some "smart guys" write nonsense about some kind of money, kickbacks, etc.
    PS. Yes, I, like many, counted on a medal that HE WILL bring to us, but it did not work out, no luck. This happens all the time in competitions. And blaming a person for being sick is the most scanty thing, think critics.

    I love our fans. The team won - "Hurray, come on!", "Cool" well, etc. And if you stumble, such a tub of slops is poured out that very few people could get out afterwards. Yes, it happens that the athlete stumbled, did not achieve the result expected by many. But why throw mud at? Have you done anything for him yourself? for this victory? Well, except for smearing the beer folds on your belly.
    Evgeni Plushenko has already proved it to everyone. Since the 95th year on ice, since the 2000th just do not fall below the second. And you still dare say something about him? Yes, refused at the last minute, but do you know what back pain is? Yes, it can be overcome, but there are limits for everything. Do you think he has no replacement? I think the coaches were warned and this probability was foreseen (and if you did not foresee it, this does not set off the coach, not the athlete)
    Zhenya, you are the best and you have already proved it. Lie yourself and tell your squaw to lay on these islands.

      ShadowCat: Evgeni Plushenko has already proved everything to everyone.

      That's when he proved it was necessary to leave and give way to the young. And according to your words, if an athlete became a champion, is he allowed to disgrace the country and perform before 80?
      Evgeni Plushenko “failed” his program at the European Championship - the athlete unexpectedly fell. Because of this unfortunate fall, he took only sixth place, shamefully not getting into the top five. The proud skater generally withdrew from the Championship, citing his old injury.

      Yagudin smart and Ivy is Ivy !!!

      You talking about injury do not make people laugh. All this is a performance. After a team victory, he has no reason to play singles, as I understand perfectly well that he has no chance there. He received gold thanks to others and now the shame on the fig.
      And the fact that when he was ... so the fact of the matter is that he was !!!!!

        Yagudin smart and Ivy is Ivy !!!

        Post-Olympic season 2002 — 2003 also starts with victories. Alexei Yagudin wins a series of semi-professional tournaments, becomes a two-time world champion among professionals. However, pain in the thigh, with which it was previously possible to somehow cope and ride, makes itself felt with renewed vigor. And Aleksey for the first time in his life withdraws from the competition: after executing the short program “Racing” on Skate America in October of the 2002 year, he takes first place, but a few minutes before the rental of an arbitrary program he is forced to abandon the further struggle. Spectators escort the skater with a standing ovation.

        “Everything happened yesterday in training,” Plushenko began his confession. “I fell while playing an axel. I felt pain, but it seemed to me that this was not serious. I had similar difficulties while training in St. Petersburg. In the morning I woke up, felt that the muscle in my back was constrained. Despite this, I went to training, went out on the ice and ... could not jump. In the end, we left the rink after six minutes. I thought that everything would be fine: now I will take pills, I will come to my senses ...
        I drank a pill, came to the rink, stretched my arms. Until recently, he hoped for a miracle. But when you don’t feel your right leg, you realize that the body is really protesting. The head just doesn't work.
        At the warm-up, I made a triple rittberger and triple lutz. From a hard landing, I felt severe pain on the right in the back, she gave an arrow right in the leg. Riding a little, I once again tried to make a triple axel, but this only worsened the situation. I could no longer ride further. He made a decision to finish. Very upset that this happened. All year I trained, prepared to participate in both team and individual competitions of the Olympics.

    He played a good performance ..... this creature had to leave the champion, here he was in the guise of team competitions and became one. Ours would have won gold in team competitions without him.
    And so he became the champion (where his merit is minimal) and now he definitely does not need to take risks. More than sure, if he hadn’t won gold in team competitions, he would have ridden anyone in singles.
    In Soviet times, he would have been sent to explore Siberia .... it's a shame that the Country and the Fans suffer from greed, self-interest and personal interests.

    What happened, as a possible and most likely scenario, was voiced from the very beginning, when Plushenko announced his desire to exhibit at the Olympics. Did it come true 100% not true? Such a scenario was conceived and implemented both by Plushenko himself and by officials from sports. Why? Everything has a reason. Officials have their reasons, Plushenko knows the reason - a bitch with clapping eyes depicting an angel. Plushenko is certainly a respected athlete, worthy of all praise ... but not in this situation, which was predictable and obvious through and through. To extend the Plushenko project. , which was supposed to end a few years ago, at someone else's expense .... Ugly. Do not you say athletes? Yes, really? And the figure skating sections that have been packed to the eyeballs have already become scarce for 20 years? And it seems to me that officials from impunity and omnipotence have long been not in Russia. That is why they expel, from the national teams, or do not accept people who win medals of the highest dignity under false flags. And at this Olympics there are a lot of them. Oh well, one, It happens like a gritsa. But no, the tendency is, however, So we push the gold medalists away, what to expose the cripple? And I will ask the author of the article, Agree, Rudkovskaya is a force, a powerful tiotka?

      I agree.
      You have to be a complete idiot to disagree.
      Rudkovskaya is at least 40% of the current situation. Minimum. And it is quite clear what her "merit" is and what she wanted from this situation. But, in fairness, I will note that it would hardly have been enough to carry out this "operation". Unambiguously, gentlemen from the FC federation also put their hands on. List? Izvolte: Chairman VN Piseev, members of the Coaching Council (the main body of the federation): Gromova Zh.F., Kudryavtsev VN, Mishin AN, Moskvina TN, Tarasova TA
      Have a list of questions? I personally do not. See for yourself who these people are and what their merits are. And, especially, WHEN there were these merits. And a lot will fall into place.
      http://www.fskate.ru/info/coachcouncils/.

      Look at the list. Were these people aware that such a situation could occur? I think yes. Sure for all 100%. But, the desire to get more medals prevailed over the mind. And so Kovtun stayed at home, and Plushenko went to speak.

      I don’t know about you, but I’m sure that such a gopa could have been used to push anyone. So Rudkovskaya - yes, definitely, but this gang should not be discounted.
      I don’t know how things are in figure skating, I was engaged in biathlon, and if it was the same as in biathlon (and I think that it was trickier, then biathlon was not so popular) then I have no questions on this topic. "We must, Vasya" - and. You go to the start and perform. And what then - it actually does not bother anyone BEFORE the start. The main thing is the result, we'll figure out the rest later.

      Given the well-deserved Soviet past of this entire company, I am not at all surprised at the current situation.
