I'm sure Plushy will get the ok to skate Sochi. But will he change his mind after seeing the high level quads shown at 2011 Worlds? He will have to look closely at 2012 Worlds as well. If he skates 2013 Worlds as a preliminary to Sochi will he be ready?

That's what I am saying. So many of the top contenders have quads now, will Plushy's quads be the best? Dai and Patrick as well as Nobu, Michal, and maybe Miner will have better overall CoP scoring if they skate their best.

Plush will be 31 in 2014.

Chan's quads could get like all +2's on GOE what if next season Plushenkos quads are all like -1 or -2 or worse Ur-ed a litle! That would be bad but if Plushenko did deliver a quad loop he could regain some points. And I believe his 3A was still one of the best of the 2009-2010 season.

leave no stone unturned
Evgeni was asked about Chan after the worlds. During the arena before the Lp they asked him (russian tv) who would win and he said: Chan.
brief translation he speaks about Gachinsky and before about Chan:
- Q: How far you are willing to go in the change of your image?
- Plushenko: I must change, adapt, to go with today's skating, there are needed transitions, exits, transition into the jumps ...I might be lacking transitions in last season, but I think next year I wont.
Patrick Chan at the Worlds very good skated, jumped two quads, a combination of 4-3, made a small mistake on the 3A, but all other triple jumps performed well - with the transition before, and exits behind them ... Chan's program is excellent, complex, Chan found his image, he had beautiful costumes, emotionally skated ... only on that way - you can win.

That's ok. I'm always amazed in any sport when a winner is well above the average age. Not many can win, but many can make a good showing. Go Plush; Go Joubert, Go Takahashi.

The Japanese MEN are formidable, however one must leave before Sochi to make room for Hanyu. Which one?

Back in 2002 SLC Olympics China had 3 spots for men (how they got 3 was beyond me....), Anthony Liu became a Australian citizen to represent them instead of always getting bunched up with everyone else on team China.
