    I've been checking back in GS archives for interviews with Fan Fest Favs, and yes, we have two with Evgeni!

    Our first article mentioning Evgeni was 2001 Good Will Games, when he was already World Champion. In other words, he's been in skating longer than GS has been doing articles

    Any word on NRW Trophy yet?

    Or any word on when we can expect word?

    (I think I'm more excited about this than the rest of the GP season, to be totally honest... Ahum.)

    Yes. Maybe you miss this video. So many adorable pics with the children. For example with Michael Weiss's children.

    So, just recently saw that Plushy is unlikely to compete due to a recent surgery - Drat! But, hopefully he will be well soon - and back in fighting form for Russian Nationals.

    I read the article, too. It says the surgery itself was done in Germany and with the way his training is going, it is highly possible that Plushy will concentrate on making a season debut at Nationals.

    Patrick Chan's "Biggest Rival"
    22.11.2012 at 7:00

    .....
    Quad Energizes Skaters

    Before Vancouver, most men's skaters didn't try to do a quad. Nowadays, quad is no longer surprise. Skaters plan a quad in both SP and LP and if they don't have three, their victory will be difficult.
    Chan used to be one of the most famous being quadless. However after Olympics he changed. In recent two seasons, he landed three quads in SP and LP.

    "I think men's figure skating is fun to watch now. I started training a quad from Vancouver's season. Then I was thinking I need to do at least two quads, otherwise I'll not be able to compete in the future. The quadruple jump energizes for skaters."

    However, all Japanese skaters say the quad is special. They can land Triples or Triple Axel without thinking. But the quad is completely different...


    Painful Memory in Vancouver

    Chan also says "The quadruple jump takes more time. It needs the power of concentration, especially, pattern of before takeoff is very important. Maybe people think I do a quad easily. No. It's not easy as they think it is."

    Vancouver Olympics is a bitter memory for Chan. He won a silver medal at the World championships in 2009. So his home country expected him Olympic gold medal. Then he was 19.

    "All our athletes wanted to win and felt nervous. Everyone felt like that. Most of all, I was feeling like that. I wondered what would happen." However, he finished only fifth due to the injury of before 2009-2010 season.
    Olympics was totally different. "It was a very big event. It's impossible to compare Olympics with other events. It had enormous number of viewers. Though when you stand on the ice, I think it was no different from any other competitions."

    But according to him, the reason why he didn't get a medal was not because he was tense but he felt pressed. "I really wanted very much to compete soon. So I couldn't calm down. At the Olympics, I learned a lot. For example, how important to control my mind and to stay healthy."


    The Strongest - Plushenko and Takahashi

    .....
    Now we can see many strong skaters all over the world. But Chan names the 2006 Olympic champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko and the 2010 Olympic bronze medalist Daisuke Takahashi as his biggest rivals in Sochi.

    "I think they are the strongest skaters. Although today many strong skaters do quads, they are still young and inexperienced. But Plushenko and Takahashi have a lot of experience. I do think it is a great advantage in Olympics" - Chan said.
