In the interview Evgeni said that he've been working for 2 months, he knows that next season everyone will look at his jumps if it will be fully rotated or not, at his spins, arms, etc. and he's ready for it. He also said something about Joubert. He said that he was in shock when Brian had a mistake and didn't do 4-3 but still was at 1 place after SP
The others don't for Plushenko. Joubert's the only one capable of beating Plushy at 2006 level. BUT, I think Plushenko fails to perhaps see that the judges aren't going to be so forigiving with him, or so willing to have him jump in and take Gold.
He said that he was even more confident in his success in Vancouver after he saw Joubert's scores at this Worlds. He couldn't believe the scores Joubert got with that crap skate
Also he sounded like others do not even exist.
There was a feeling in 2006 that he deserved it, I doubt that feeling exists today.
is this free translation or what?cause i read the interview and nowhere he says something like that.He speaks about joub failing his combo and still be first but this had to do with the fact that none was better than this.He couldn't believe the scores Joubert got with that crap skate
maybe the general feeling is that joumbert deserves this time the OG but honestly for me joumbert since last olympics had only one great season with good skating.
and i thought i had put you on the virtue path..thats what happens when i m away!Very sorry to see the crazy haired man who looks like a tramp advising him on choreo from the sidelines though. Looks like i'll still run screaming away from the choreography... new head grabbing...oh dear!
i imagine the hype next year about the reigning OC defending his title,every olympics need its drama i guess (a la phelps) the only one who could be annoyed by plushenko coming back is dick button
Well of course but who knows what shape Takahashi will be in. And well Takahashi is a bit of a head case.
Takahashi. If people keep counting him out I will scream. He holds the record for the highest competition score, not Joubert.
No more so than Joubert, it would seem.
