Fan video from the show in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. He didn't skate actually, but his few steps and a spin in a finale caused a big eruption among his fans with "Wait, recover first!" mood. Yana said he doesn't jump at all, even on the floor due to the doctors' advice, but it's quite clear that he is eager to skate. Hope he will recover first. There were cases in his career when he rushed to skate and worsened his health conditions, like it happened last season: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98v5ZDhNY64&t=2m57s

Very short interview with Mishin about Plu and his career:
In short he said that the secret of Zhenya's long career is his talent and his training. If he were not born talented or if he were not trained the right way, he wouldn't be able to make his comebacks. He also has a great power and will, as well as the team who suuports him a lot. Besides coaches and choreographers he mentioned Plu's wife Yana as the most effective woman in his life, and his mother. He pointed out the Zhenya doesn't have what Mishin calls "coordinative oldness." He is young in his heart and soul where figure skating doesn't live as some heavy burden that Plu has to carry. He says that now fs fans are divided in two groups: some say "why he needs all this, he has everything." Mizhin said he doesn't like those people and their talks. The others say "Zhenya, go! Reach your goals, accomplish your achievements, win whatever you wish and bring us joy with your skating. Mishin compared Plushenko with people who opened the doors to unknown, like Armin Hary who was the first one to run 100m for 10s, Vlasov who was the first who lifted 500kg and Bob Beamon who was the first who jumped 8m90sm. What Plushenko is doing now is making things considered impossible for a human- possible, said Mishin. That is his main contribution in the Olympics movement in general, ANM added.
