    My favorite skaters too! It's hard to choose, but for me it's clear. I'm Russian

    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

    Thanks for the video.

    Was it just me, or did I hear Carmen playing in the background at one point?

    Thanks for the correction. My elderly mind has its problems. But the point remains, there is a tendency to appreciate more the boasting rather than the substance. After all it is about skate-to-ice firstly and anything else is just an added attraction.

    Yes, it was Katarina's music. She and Evgeni have the same coaches and practice at the same place

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
    and i thought i had put you on the virtue path..thats what happens when i m away!

    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

    Stop it, I am trying to flame the next big rivalry
    However it is is not the words, it is how he says it.

    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.
