    Ugh. No Daisuke is way more of a headcase than Joubert. May I point out to you 2008 worlds, where Daisuke even did an Oda (did four combos) along with the multiple screw ups. He's only had one good worlds, and even then he put himself far back enough in the short program to take it out of his hands.

    I love Daisuke's skating, but I'm not convinced at all that Daisuke can rise to the challenge. I am convinced that Joubert can, in fact I think part of Joubert's problem is he pays to much attention to others and plays it safe to much. He actually hilariously enough skates his best when he's challenged.

    Joubert vs. Plushenko for Gold!! We know much about Joubert. What do we know about Plushenko since 2006? He's had a difficult divorce; his skating is limited to shows. We don't know if he is able to increase his technical since last Olys. Are there any reports on his practice? He's not the fair haired boy anymore. The judges should not quiver with the mention of his name. Will he skate 2010? Will he be fully trained?

    How can anyone know this?

    Until Pluschenko skates we will not have a clue how the judges will score him.

    Face touching, head grabbing, pelvic thrusting, swatting invisible flies around your head. These are all things that make me cringe when watching skating.

    i just saw the head grabbing, yeah it is not nice...like he wants to get rid of his head.But maybe it is a concentration move.
    I liked a lot some his hand movements though..also the fact that he covers miles of ice when he jumps, i didnt see it in worlds a lot this year and it bothers me when someone jumps and almost returns on the same spot

    and it is not flies, it is bees..

    Yeah, he's natural blond but hair's getting darker with age so nothing's surprising.

    To your first question I even don't know how to answer. I hope it was a joke.

    very thanks. it's just question about some blond guy's hair becoming darker like brown by time going, not only plushy, but also some others as Stephen Hendry (Snooker) and Jurgen Klinsmann. I always wonder if they are dying the hair or not......Sorry for my curiosity and i really don't want to offend.

    Maybe some people think so, but I believe that no-one deserves an Olympic gold medal, it must be won.
