    The elements are nice, he needs more speed, though.

    I ve heard Arthur has a great Lp this season to Anna Karenina.This is a vid from his training at FT.

    I haven't seen any of bionic Plushy 's programs, has he skated them yet in public?
    Great to see you, Seniorita! I'm glad to see that Plushy has been able to skate in public and seems to be making progress. Wouldn't it be funny if the top contenders for OGMs turn out to be the two old-timers, Plushy and YuNa Kim. It just goes to show that a strong will can work wonders.

    I think the big issue is just how healthy is Plushy and can his back and knees hold up? He will make mistakes if he is not healthy - makes sense if you are worried about a wonky nknee or in pain. You can't execute everything as well. Good bye bielleman - though that has been gone as he got older it seems.

    Right, especially with the surgical repairs he has had on his vertebra/discs. Bielleman would be a huge challenge, not to mention a mistake from a stability and pain standpoint.

    Plushy hasn't done/been able to do the Beilmann since 2004.

    He did do a Bielmann here, though:

    When he was injured no less... (A hernia, I think it turned out to be?) This might have been his last Bielmann?

    Gachinski's akte today at Panin Memorial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kc6QZzIhKCU

    jumps are tilted and unstable - I think Gachinski is done, retirement in mind perhaps after Sochi ?,
    even Voronov got a higher PCS than him considering what Voronov is like 29 or 30 years old.

    Oh give it up skyfly. He's not retiring, not going away and he's getting better this year. Deal with it!

    He's improving. By Skate America he should be ready

    I think that Gachinski is as likely or unlikely as Kovtun to close the gap on Plushenko...

    He won't win anything there anyway. He won't even place in top five. The competition is too tough for any of Russian men, ru fed had probably just sent there the one they had less pity for.

    They say yesterday morning Zhenya was training at AFK, there Panin Memorial is held, and he planned to compete, but then desided against it.

    Wow! Interesting, but this competition wasn't planned. But who are "they" ? What did they think about the training?
