    Obviously hope he gets better from the mystery problem.

    Terrible for Russia likely no one in the top 10 and loss of two spots for 2011.

    Alexei Mishin: "Plushenko is experiencing pain in the performance of difficult jumps - a triple Axel and a quadruple toe loop"

    Yevgeny Plushenko's coach Alexei Mishin has confirmed that the rejection of speech figure skating at the World Cup due to medical contraindications.

    "Zhenya still wanted to speak, and I had the mood for a successful performance in Turin. But doctors ordered Eugene skating with extremely high loads. He feels pain in the performance of difficult jumps - a triple Axel and a quadruple toe loop. These jumps doctors recommended be deleted from skating. Train him, however, allowed. But classes will be held in lightweight mode.

    Eugene did an MRI scan. We specifically do not pass this analysis to Vancouver to Eugene realized his dream - was involved in his third Olympics. But now, when the intensity of the struggle was asleep, had to go into this procedure. Threads were no more, that the world championship will have to miss, it became clear immediately ", - quotes Mishina Infox.ru.

    An inspired Voronov can make it to the top 10. But I wonder if he has been training or has the right motivation after the humilliating loss of his olympic spot. Anyways, both Sergei and Borodulin can easily finish between the 11 and
    16th range and still retain two spots with the right combo of placements (a 14th-15th will mean 29 points and no second spot).

    As for Evgeni. Worlds was never on his comeback plans, Gold at Vancouver was definetly the only goal. I'm actually surprised it took this long to announce his withdrawal.

    Voronov has been inconsistent in the past, but I believe in Borodulin. He might pull off a minor miracle.

    Can Borodulin go up four spots from 13 to 9 maybe with the witdrawls.

    I was reading Alena Leonova's blog and she skated at the same place Voronov did and after Euros he stopped going so I don't know what kind of shape he is in. Probably not competitive shape.

    28 points for them in all is enough I think for two spots in 2011. I always forget about the qualification rules

    Sad if that is so, but isn't an optimist skater always training hard if he/she is a substitute. Especially now with so many plausible withdrawals. Go Voronov

    I thought Plush would surely come to Worlds because he was a lock to win it.

    He was born in 1987. Does that mean he is soviet? He would have been 4 when it collapsed.

    Don't be so sure. If your podium will be Joubert, Takahashi and Chan, it will not look such a new era. All have medaled before.
