It's difficult contemplating the damage those guys do to their bodies. The jumps these days are a kind of planned body obsolescence--guaranteed to drum up business for suppliers of artificial joints. But it's Evgeni's decision to continue, and I admire him for it. I do hope he is able to sustain his high level of achievement, but even at lesser strength, he's still an immensely impressive skater, and he always brings something extra to a competition. He's earned his place as an important part of skating history.
