    ^^Thanks. I feel like I've seen parts of the video before, but I seemed to have missed out on where he talked about the gala. He was actually going for a quad on that first jump? I didn't realize it at all, I thought it was just an intended warm-up jump before the 3As.

    And of course, the part about Mao.

    EDIT: ISU retirement trophy?!

    While we should encourage everyone to live life to the fullest and leave on one's own term; I still just feel time he has had his fifteen seconds of fame and he risks serious injuries. GRanted maybe if he takes a 1.5 years off he could skate in the next olympics and place say 12th?

    You keep on saying things like that - about a whole load of skaters, note, not just Plushy - and then you always go on to say how they ought to retire... And while I don't think you are necessarily wrong in principle in this case - I do think that Plushy has had more than "15 seconds" of fame.

    There is no such competition as ISU retirement trophy?
