    Good to see that he was able to move on and find something else great to do with his life. There just aren't enough professional opportunities and he'll do well in finance or investment banking. I'd like to see more skaters follow his path when they wrap up their amateur careers.

    Alot more skaters and gymnasts go to college and have plans for careers out of their sports than in the 80s or 90s. Or so it seems.

    What a great interview. Tim is a very articulate young man. Interesting comments about Plushenko at the Olympics.

    Plushenkos combo jumps were better then the solo jumps. That is true with both lutz and axel. I don't think the sportsmanship was bad but that doesn't mean you can't have opinions at the first quadless win since 1994 and just shrug your shoulders at it and proclaim that maybe if you wanted to be better for the system you also don't do something that you can do and was important for many years.

    Lol at daring tha Chinese teams for quints

    I forgot that plushenko skated his best at the olympics. In the sp at the gp of Russia doubled his lutz. If he did that in Vancouver he would have been down there with Oda and weir and it would have been Takahashi vs Lysacek. Russian nationals disaster triples quad and then solo quad and it was just terrible-saved by the fact that it was Russian nationals lol. Europeans also doubled lutz jump in fs would have made he Olympics a landslide for Lysacek. Vancouver was plushenkos best.
