I feel sorry for Oda and Verner. They will probably be the best skaters to never win a World medal. They just cant handle pressure and time is running out on both.
Chan is certain to win every competition he is in until 2014 atleast, maybe beyond is he chooses to continue. He is just so far ahead of the others right now, it must be embarassing for the rest. Hopefully next year some of the other guys pull up their socks and get their acts together, hopefully feeling embarassed how far Chan has gotten ahead of all of them.
So true! Will that be too late for Plushenko to go to Tarasova?Imagine what happens if Plushenko does return, since he and Gachinski have the same coach, Alexi Mishin.
After all, it had been Plushenko's rise that drove Alexei Yagudin from Mishin to the United States, where he went on to work with another Russian coach, Tatiana Tarasova, and win the 2002 Olympic title.
