    News Plushenko a dark horse for 2014 Olympics

    Russia's Evgeni Plushenko is arguably the most recognizable figure skater in the world. Yet, one year before the Olympic Games in Sochi, the 2006 Olympic Champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist remains the dark horse in the race for the 2014 Olympic title.

    My wife told me, ‘Zhenya, I beg you, do not go for quads’, and my mother said ‘it was out of question.’”

    “Mine was the last word, though.”
    MY HERO! Anyone who can stand up to his wife AND his mother both at the same time is OK by me!

    He is going to ignore his doctor's instructions one time too many I fear.

    Plushenko is amazing, one of a kind. He is possibly the greatest competitor I've ever seen, in any sport. I worry about his health, though. He should listen to his doctor's instructions. But, as the article makes clear, he'll do what he wants, regardless of what anyone says. I guess that's what makes him Plushenko. :-)

    I love this man so much. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVGRZLmIEIw Sometimes I don't want that he competes, because I worry about him. But he made the decision,and he competes thus I want to help and support him in all ways...
