Before signing off its Olympic coverage last night, NBC telecast the men's figure skating medal ceremony. Plushenko, Lambiel, and Buttle were on the podium, wearing their new medals, and the Russian national anthem was played.
Evgeny stood tall and erect and he maintained a serious expression throughout the Russian national anthem. Stephan was emotional and cried, and Jeffrey had tears in his eyes. When the anthem ended, Evgeny broke out into a huge smile, waved to the crowd, and the three medalists stood on the top podium for photos.
