    Plushenko 'bombs' for his standard.

    4toe(cheated), 3toe, 3salchow, 3loop /2nd half/ 2axel into 2axel, 2lutz, 2axel (won't count), 3axel

    Jumps aside, the program couldn't have been any emptier. He was stroking from one element to the next, then did some posing in the middle and then more stroking into jumps. CH and TR should in the 2s, honestly... He was quite slow (for a skater at his level) as well. Even on the steps, he seemed a little tired and didn't have his usual fire. His body really is pushed to its absolute limits.

    I will be never tired of saying this: NO TRANSITIONS. 0. NOTHING between the elements. I hope the judges in Sochi will give him the scores he deserves...

    I don't care what anyone says, I love Plushenko and his questionable hip thrusts. He has such a command over the ice, and you can't help but watch him, even if you don't like him.

    Too bad he trippled the second quad and doubled a couple of axels, and doubled the lutz, but good for him for sneaking that triple axel into the end there. Hopefully his score will hold to beat our Kovtun.

    In this program (and the SP) even more so than in the past.

    That was NOT a medal contender performance for sure. Even if he'd done the jumps well there is not a lot going on in the program.

    At least Gorshkov isn't the only one here who can't count. I expected more from Plushenko, jump wise. Program is an aweful mess.

    LOL!

    Honestly, with this performance at the Olympics, anywhere but in Russia, that would be outside of the top 10.

    Really, if the judges were fair, they sould give him something like 3.50 for TR...

    I used to think that before I saw him live.
    He has such a command and presence, that it's incredible, you cannot take your eyes off him.

    Oh, and if his name wasn't Plushenko, it would be outside the top 20. You know, transitions and stuff.

    One of the weirdest skates i've ever seen ^_^

    Still love this guy, At least he made the quad and the 3axle count,
    Spins look slightly faster
    But what the hell ?! ^_^
