    Not many skaters have a statue in their honor so this is very exciting news!.

    To pick the statue they had a contest and over 300 different sculptors entered their work for consideration.

    Here is the winner!!

    I think they made a wise choice as this magnificent work captures the true essense of Plushy, the man and the skater

    But Janetfan, the statue is upside-down!

    Of course, because it is not permanently mounted yet.
    Currently it is on a temporary base with wheels and is being taken to towns and cities all over Russia.
    The "Mighty Finger" is like their version of the Olympic torch

    Has anyone here looked at the "old" Russian movies - "Alexander Nevsky", "Andrey Rublyov"...?

    Nikolai Morozov:
    «I WOULD BUILD A STATUE FOR PLUSHENKO»
    ...
    NM: I was blown by Evgeni Pluschenko’s skating. So far it’s the strongest impression of the season. I would build a statue for him. It’s hard to give a score for what he had done.

    - EV: I.e. you didn’t even consider the possibility of his comeback?
    - NM: No, why? At the time I was deeply involved in Yagudin/Pluschenko rivalry when they both were getting ready for the SLC games. I know the guys well and I know what are they capable of. When Yagudin considered coming back to the sports before his hip surgery he came to train with me in New Jersey, skated for a couple of days and even attempted to land a quad. Those are the skaters of a different level. Not like any others. In Pluschenko’s plans to come back I didn’t see anything impossible, but I was overwhelmed in Moscow not by his triple and quad jumps, but by the fact that he looks better on the ice now than he was at 2006.

    - EV: Many are mentioning that. As well as the fact it would be hard for Pluschenko to accommodate to the new system as far as the non jumping elements go.
    - NM: I don’t want to talk about it. The last world championships were won by the skaters who can’t even perform a quad. I don’t consider it normal.

    - EV: I remember our conversation half a year prior to the Turino Olympics. Back then you said the value of the quad should be higher. But it still haven’t happened. Is an attempt for a hard element justified when it is not scored particularly high?
    - NM: I think those who are capable to land the quads will attempt them in Vancouver. That is if they want to win, of course. Take Joubert: he meant to jump 3 quads them in Grand Prix in Paris and it was not because Pluschenko came back. And it doesn’t matter that he was unable to land them: after all the goal is the same: to win in Vancouver....

    Cause this is the shortest plushair i may have seen and I could live with that, it looked nice!
    I don't think it is... it's the same style that Keith Urban (Mr. Nicole Kidman) has... which I also don't like lol

    I leave you alone for a while and you write several pages of...eh....stuff. It's hard keeping up with this thread.

    Are we endorsing tanning now? Because really, I never cared for Evan's.

    I've seen this photo before, and I actually really like it. So if Plushenko perm his hair like this, it will look a lot better. But I actually don't mind his mullet that much. It has already become him. Of course, if he ever changes his mind and decides to change to the hair style into this photo, it'll be better.

    I agree and also think the picture of Plushy "studying the dinner menu" is very nice He looks so peaceful mulling (not "mulleting" ) over what to order.

    I also agree that the mullet suits him and after all of these years it would feel strange to see him change it.

    Figure skating needs more iconic images.
    Michelle's coe spiral and Plushy's enduring mullet are without a doubt the two most recognizable images in the skating world.

    American fans are always greatful to Plushy because his mullet honors the original "Mullet King" of men's figure skating..
