    Plushenko May Withdraw

    From FSU:

    "Just read a report on another website from someone who is at Worlds. Apparently there are rumours going around at the arena that Plushy may withdraw because of a stress fracture."

    Poor Plushy

    That's sad to hear. Is it a rumor or a fact? Anyways, it's sad for Plushenko, and if it is true I hope he gets well soon. I'm checking the news reports but so far I haven't read anything about this. There are pictures of him training today.

    Since it's my post at FSU that is being quoted - let me assure you that when I said *rumour* I meant it. Rumours go around at major events like this all the time. They may be based upon fact, they may not.

    Given the knee thing, I think he would have done well to take the whole season off PERIOD, tho I can understand why he didn't, Worlds being in Moscow and all. From his possible perspective, BAD timing, considering the Worlds haven't been in Russia in over 100 years, and then the year they are, is the year he probably should have taken off to get some of these issues taken care of. I've also read recently that he's feeling a bit burned out.

    Oh my gosh! I am really worried. Yes I want him to win. But I would rather he heal properly.

    I'm wondering if by not taking care of the knee problems, he contributed to other injuries. I would think that you would tend to compensate (consciously or subconsciously) for the injury and put new stress on different areas.

    I think he will stay. Russian needs him to secure 3 spots for Turino. For what worth hope he take care his body. I really like to see him win next Olympics, even I'm not a big fan of his skating style.

    ah, this is terrible for plushenko.. missing 3 jumps in a row during practice? this doesn't bode well for a 4th world title. will he withdraw? he has a high tolerance for pain. some sometimes, your body just can't take it anymore.

    at least kwan seems to be landing all her jumps very well,, "with confidence and vigor.".. she is going to perfrom well i hope.. don't know how this will translate result-wise..but hopefully a podium finish once again.

    I think the poster may have been meaning "good" in that there is substantiation to them....that they are not just off the cuff, but may be in fact. I doubt that anyone, even the least appreciative fan of Plushenko, would find anything "Good" about an injury to the boy. Try not to assume the worst of other people right off the bat.
