Strong Man - 2006.

... OTHER PHOTOS HERE : :mi_ga_et:
I actually liked not pics only but the interview too! The interview is quite old, so I skipped all the stuff about Russian FS Federartion, his meeting with Putin, etc., the stuff that we already heard many times. I translated only the parts about him and his personality. :plush45:

I.T.- Are you a sociable person?

E.P.- Yes, I always support the conversation. But mostly I am concentrated on myself. When I am in the middle of training or competition, I feel a huge outburst of emotions, energy and adrenaline. I am completely focused on my work, on myself. I simply don't have any power on doing something else. As the result at the end of the day I sometimes feel empty- I don't want to do anything. Just go to bed and sleep.

I.T.- Zhenya, in your opinion, what does it mean "a strong man"?

E.P. - For example, me- a figure skater Evgeni Plushenko (smile). I think I am a stong man, in life and in sport. When I just started and when I couldn't succeed in everything, my mum always told me that I was strong, I was the best and I would be able to reach all targets. With such a great support I was heading to my goals. I do love to win.

I.T.- You are always so serious, you don't smile enough.

E.P. Me? But if I smile all the time, people will think I am an idiot. I find it strange when people smile with no reasons. I like good jokes and laugh, if they are on topic.

I.T.- I heard you are very emotional but yet you do manage to control yourself. Would you share your secret?

E.P.- When something is going wrong at training, I scream at myself. I always do my best to be perfect at skating. The Free Program is only 4 minutes 40 seconds. During this time I have to perform a lot of elements and they must be clean. I do need super-concentration and super-attention. I still can't stop thinking what a difficult sport FS is. There is no room for mistakes.

I.T.- But the same can be said about any other sport...

E.P.- Yeah, but in game sport like football even if you miss the score, you still have a chance to score back. But in FS there is no such a thing as the second chance.

I.T. - What' sthe difference between Plushenko on ice and Plushenko off ice?

E.P.- There is no difference. My life is FS. I am the same person on ice and off ice. I don't do such a thing as "Now I will finish my program, take off my mask and go home."

I.T.- Is there such a thing as "the perfect sportsman"?

E.P. Definitely, no. Because even a very strong person can lose.

I.T. - I heard you want to act in a movie. What part would you like to be?

E.P.- The leading one (laugh). It could be a historical film or an action.

Blitz Survey:

-The most expensive present you got?
-The car from Putin, the apartment from Matvienko.

-Your hobby?
-Lawn tennis, Russian billiard, football.

-How much cash do you have on you now?
-Sometimes I have none, like today. But I always have my credit card on me.

-What thing in your wardrobe has the biggest number of items?
-Shoes. I have no idea how many pairs exactly I have.

-Your ambitions?
- I am very strict to myself. If I must do this element in this training session, I do it. I never leave it till next training.

-What is your biggest pleasure?
-Just rest. Sleep enough, do nothing and call no one.

-How do you start your morning?
-With a shower.

-Where is the best place on the Earth?
-I adore my city- St-Petersburg.

-What is a "drug" for you?
-Sport. I can't be without it. After two weeks of no- training I start feeling pain in my muscles.

-What jewelry is acceptable on a man?
-A watch, a wedding ring and a small but expensive diamond on the little finger.

-Your favourite cuisines?
-Japanese, Italian, Georgian. I love shashlik!

-Your favorite perfume?
-Lacoste, Paco Rabanne, Chanel.

-Your favourite colors?
-Dark ones.

Re: Женя на тренировках || Evgeni on training

Second Part:

About this, I want to tell an episode, which shows another feature of Evgeni Plushenko to those who know him only as a proud champion and sometimes aloof.
We’re sitting on the usual place, in the stands, waiting to watch his workout, when the sound of suitcases laid on the ground makes turn our heads. It's Evgeni, evidently returning from an intense session in the gym, sweating and red in the face, a white towel around his neck.
At the same time we see coming down Chiara, who had announced his arrival today: she tells us that Evgeni had reached her on the stairs and he snatched away the baggage, after having embraced and warmly welcomed her. Then, he preceded her, carrying the bags and bringing her to us. We stare at him open-mouthed, and he smiled, amused by our surprise. He asked us "How are you?" and when we asked him how he was doing, he replied:: "Still alive!". Then he went to change his clothes to get on the rink. Also this is Evgeni Plushenko
We greet him in his day off and he tells us about future plans, the return to St. Petersburg in order to continue his training, then a trip to Geneva to meet a new and exclusive sponsor, and finally the Japan Open: it's too early for a real competition, but he tells us that he feels to face up to that commitment. "I still love skating very much", he concludes.
And we like to watch him skating. Very much.

Break a leg, Evgeni!

(Lorella Miotello)

As you already know, Girls, I don't speak English. This is just a rough Google-translation.
I hope this makes sense to you! :smu:sche_nie:

Re: Женя на тренировках || Evgeni on training

Back in Pinzolo, again :hi_hi_hi: .... Lelo's link to Italian article (on Plushy's official Italian site) and her pics :plush45:

Luglio 2011 - La grinta del campione :
... please for short translation :plush39:

First part:

Evgeni, his feet on the ice rink countering the pain of new skates, Evgeni who just finished a hard session on the rink going to the river in order to quench with cold water the throbbing knee pain after the surgery. Evgeni running, riding mountain bike, training in the gym, on the ice rink and running again, back in the gym... These days at Pinzolo, last camp of the "Mishin Mission", Evgeni Plushenko has proven iron will to return to competitions already during the next season. After two surgeries - one on the knee and another one in the back, in order to solve a chronic pain - we find him decided to fight like never before.
He's skinny, even more than he was during the last Olympics, he looks in amazing shape, he reminds me of the 2004 season. The face is sharp, the body is thin. After only one month after surgery, he already lands beautiful triples, also the triple axel is magnificent as always.
I had the privilege of assisting in the preparation of some parts of upcoming programs, and as always I found the beauty of Evgeni's art, his unique ability to convey emotion, even by a simple arm’s movement. Work hard: the spins, wherein he has greatly lowered center of gravity and increased the speed; the transitions, for which he was heavily criticized, both are subject of a special care, and step sequences will be a true feast for the figure skating fans.
I'm excited to witness the birth and development of a new program that will become - so we hope - the trump card in the forthcoming races of Evgeni. This experience once again returns the image of a single athlete and an artist capable of transmitting unforgettable emotions. And this is the reason why I follow him a long time.
But what strikes me most of this unique champion is the grit. The desire to fight, never giving up, seems to be the peculiarity of his character, his winning weapons. After winning the winnable in this fascinating and very hard sport, he's still hungry for victory, the desire to give and to be there, that normally are the prerogative of those who have not yet reached the highest levels. As he replied to those who were saying that the struggle was over by now, "I have not yet stopped fighting."
So Evgeni is still struggling, before with his competitors on the ice rink against himself, against the pain left on his body by many years of skating, against the inexorable advancing age. As he tell us during a break before returning to his training: "I have to work hard because I'm old", we deny this, but he insists: "In this sport you can reach the maximum between 18 and 21 years, then the effort becomes increasingly large and to remain competitive you have to work a lot, harder than others. "
He confirms us that he means to return to competitions during the next season, but he's cautious with predictions: the knee surgery is recent and the pain is still intense. He prefer to talk not about the opponents, he's concentrated on himself and his ambitious goals.
First of all, the Olympics of Sochi, which is one of the engines of his motivation to compete. And we hope he may reach also this goal, for the delight of those who admire him and those who love figure skating, the real one, made of soul, passion, perfect fusion between sport and art. A synthesis that finds in Evgeni its greatest fulfillment.
With us he's always helpful and smiling, he greets us warmly, he laughs and jokes when, during a chance encounter in the park adjacent to the ice rink, we're trying to shirk in order to disturb not his training, he is the one who draws our attention sending us a kiss and a smile.

Re: Женя на тренировках || Evgeni on training

The willpower of this man is simply amazing! All the energy that he's putting into trying to realize his dream, the patience, the amount of pain he's willing to bear... He's doing all this work not only for himself, but also for all of us fans: the happiness that we feel watching him skating is the driving force and the reason behind his struggle! :plush34:

Re: Контрольные прокаты 03-04.09.2011 || Open Test Skating

It was unforgettable. Zhenya really made this day. He tried to start with quad but tripled it (before he succeeded it in the practice section). Then he landed three huge 3,5 axels and showed awesome performance, full of energy, grace and incredible personality. It was real “Je sui malade”, not worse then on Olimpics. I saw Tatyana Tarasova applauding him after every axel. At the end the whole audience greeted him with standing ovation. There were a lot of flowers and toys. Any other athlete would congratulate himself with such a good start but Zhenya was so upset because of that quad as if it was already in Sochi. When we meet he returned to this question two or three times, said us that he was nervous today, that quad is not consistent yet and leg still bothers him a bit. It's obvious that Zhenya feels a great pressure from the very beginning, even before competitions really start. He had to give a lot of interviews for media and met with us totally life drained. But he was very attentive, spend with us enough time despite of some journalists awaiting and answered all our questions. Now as never before he needs every possible support. So my big respect to the girls, they really did the best. Also, a lot of thanks to Irina for her help with invitation ticket.

Re: Пресса о Жене, интервью Жени || Press about Evgeni ON Ic

Евгений Плющенко: "Возвращаться сейчас намного тяжелее, чем перед Ванкувером"
Translated only parts that are not repeated in the previous interviews :mi_ga_et:

Evgeni Plushenko: "Return now is much harder, than before Vancouver"

- Except of the knee, you not so long ago had surgery also on your back. How does it feels?
- The back is more or less normally. If would like today, then in general, it will be possible to live up to the year 2018. (Pause) Just kidding, actually at least until 2014th (smiles).

- Taking into account all operations, when you will able to begin full-time training for the season?
- The full-time training actually begins only now. Work in full force, already in Test Skating. But before was hard, especially in summer training camps. Several times I wanted to end ...

- Helped to overcome the very high goal - Sochi 2014? Or, perhaps, Alexei Mishin found the right words at the moment?
- No, of course, the goal - Sochi. The fourth Olympics. Try it myself at the Olympics again. Maybe even to prove something to myself, and those who do not believe and say that it is impossible to do. But I think if man set a goal and has the desire, he goes to the end, and many can succeed. But I do not advise anyone to do it a second time. Very hard.

- You can compare the current return with that, through what you went to Vancouver? Or all that is still different things?
- No. Now is much harder. Then it was generally playgame. Just because there was no operations, and now the question is related to health. Well, and 27 years - it's not 28, and not 29 (smiles). This affects, to be honest. Very affecting, in the sense that more needed to warm up, more work. The head is still young (laughs).

- While it is a break in active figure skating before you have had longer. And even this does not compensate?
- No. At this time is much harder.

- On the Test Skatings you are doing exibition number. Do not want to show the public the programs in "raw" form? Or because of some more reasons?
- You are right in saying that this is "raw" programs, they need more skated. Because of the leg, I could not do now many elements, for example, spins, some steps, and generally, in full force skated short and long programs. I need to put myself in normal physical condition and then show all in the competitions.

- According to doctors, when the knee will withstand both the programs entirely?
- Doctors recommend a few more injections, which will I get, probably next week. And I think that in mid-October, knee will feel good.

- In your competitive plans appear stages of the Russian Cup.
- Yes, the first start, most likely, will be in late October. Stage of the Russian Cup, I still do not know which specifically.
... For now, first start - it's Russian. It is necessary shown here, to be judges look. And the second event may be international.

- At the closed Test Skating for federal leadership and expertise in Novogorsk, that preceded the open, you showed your programs?
- No, I do not skated there, just practicing. Came president of the federation, some of the judges. Just watched my jumps - I have done all the triples, on several occasions tried 3,5. There was also a quadruple with the touch of ice by hand. But there was already a message, that I can. Leadership liked, they said - go on (smiles).

- The whole story with your the restoration of amateur status has cost you a lot of nerves? Or somehow you managed to ignore that?
- You know, I just continued to train, to perform on the shows. Life continued. I want to say thanks to the Russian Figure Skating Federation and personally, to the president of the ISU Ottavio Cinquanta. I think they made ​​the right choice and did not more spoil anyone nerves. Neither the fans, nor including me (Laughs). Thank you, for supporting me and returned amateur status.

- In this inter-season, appeared to you a new choreographer. Tell us about this collaboration.
- It's Irina Sharonova, a former dancer, now she teaches at the Conservatory of St. Petersburg. She already had occasion to work with the skaters, though not with the largest. I've seen some of her work, and I liked it. I know Irina for a long time. We immediately found common ground, and our work is obtained very quickly.

- She will choreographing you both programs?
- Working on them and David Avdish (permanent choreographer of Plushenko -note), and Irina, and Stephane Lambiel. However, with Stephane we are doing some pieces - the transitions, exits, but not a whole the program. But some fragments, we now put into the program.

- Work with a female choreographer has its own specifics?
- Certainly. I worked most of the careers with men. I tried to try something new. This is unusual, pleasant to work. Men are moving a little differently, while women - more softly, gently. Maybe I just need it.

- Thinking about, how to change something in the habitual image of skater Plushenko?
- You know it's probably impossible. If I start now, it would be I am 15 years old, could be sculpt me. But now, my figure is already done. You can simply add some new moves and new costumes. But the crossover (перебежка?) - as it was in Plushenko, so be it. Naturally, we try to add something new. Especially, figure skating now requires it, because the system is changed.

- There is no boring, that "the figure is already done," do you would like to change something?
- You know, life goes on. At least, I'm not saying "no", I'm trying.

- You follow what are doing eminent foreign competitors? Patrick Chan, who promises two quadruples, or Evan Lysacek, who decided to return in the competitions?
- Of course, I watch all of them. I get lots of information: who, what, which programs. This is necessarily. But I believe that I must primarily think, not about the opponents, than about myself. And do my job.

Мария РЕМИЗОВА — 04.09.2011

Евгений Плющенко: Летом мне хотелось повесить коньки на гвоздь, но потом я понял, что это самое легкое
Олимпийский чемпион вернулся на лед ....
Same interview :ni_zia: - Plushenko decided not to leave the sport 2011.09.04

... later translation :mi_ga_et:
First, translation of video (it is part of the text above) :plush45:

- Zhenya, everyone talking about your wish and wish of all your fans, that you perform at the Olympics. You have still this wish?

- Plushenko: "I would honestly say that the second return - the most difficult. Insanely difficult to come back, especially when you endure all kinds of operations. And this summer in the camps, I often wanted to hang skates, but then I came to the conclusion, that this is the easiest what can be done. But move beyond, to transcend this, not even a barrier yet, than wall... So, overjump him, and make new elements, and regain all the skills which are inherent in me and continue to skate - it's insanely hard.
But I try, I try to overcome these barriers, difficulties with health. And to me, in general, it turns out!

I am very grateful to my fans, the fans who support me. I know that they love me, I can say - they live with me, and it's a great honor for me. Thank you, dear. But I'll try not just to skate, but also to win at the Olympics.

... Today I skated my exibition number. Decided not to show a short and free program, although they are almost ready. It was possible to show them, but I think that it's better to finish them to the end, and then introduce to the audience and judges. It remains to finish the steps and choose costumes. Competitions are soon, literally in October, I will participate in some of the stages of Russian Cup. Probably Samara or Perm. And there will necessarily show the new programs."

(continuation of translation is from the text) :-):

Evgeni Plushenko: This summer I wanted to hang up skates, but then I realized that it was the easiest

This weekend at the Rublevka rink was happened, what the fans of figure skating waited a few months. After the disqualification, and two operations on his knee and the meniscus, Evgeni Plushenko returned to the sport.

Three-time world champion, Olympic champion skated in the show of the strongest skaters in the Moscow region on arena "".

When Zhenya came out on the ice, the hall applauded standing. Do not hold back emotions and professionals: the head of figure skating federation Valentin Piseev and coach Tatiana Tarasova.
Skater at the stands supporting his wife Yana Rudkovskaya and her friend Lera Kudryavtseva.

- Who liked you of those guys who were on the ice today?
- Plushenko: Many today worthy skated. The guys are perspective. There is competition, growing. To me will be difficult to perform. But my task is: doing my job, doing that, what I can do. And then everything will be fine. Many today have made a quadruple jump, a quadruple toe loop, someone made a three and a half, there are new images, added in the slip (в скольжении?) and in the spins. What can I say, I am happy to deal with them.

- I saw that to you today Tatiana Tarasova standing applauded. And she is, known a strict judge, and first-class trener. It was not at the rink today, your coach Alexei Mishin. It was hard without his support?
- Plushy: Of course, it is hard without my coach. I think it's the last time, that this is happens. Mishin is now with Arthur Gachinsky in Japan. With Mishin, of course, I feel myself more confident.

- Tell me please, in your Twitter, you recently wrote that your son Egor went to the hockey section. Why not in figure skating?
- Plushy: Yes, my sonny are involved in the hockey. Today he had already the fifth training session. That is, he goes to kindergarten in the morning, after kindergarten his mother takes him to the rink. He works for now as an individual. Learn to skate with hockey skates, in nice hockey equipment which I had bought him. Egor love all that. In general, and I like it. One figure skater in the family is enough. I and Masha (ex-wife of Evgeni Plushenko - remark.auth.). Agreed that it was necessary to send him to hockey. While, may be and football
parallel will play.
I would like my son to become a real athlete. Trainings was excellent, he already calmly skating on hockey skates. Egor already can go through entire the ice rink with high speed. It's amazing. Maybe, I remember in that on myself. Egor is a grown man: my son is five years old, through two years he will going to school.

(Evgeni's meeting with fans after Test Skating 03.09.2011 Rublevka, Moscow)

Встреча c поклонниками. Часть 1 КАТОК. РУ 3.09.11
Часть 3 КАТОК. РУ 3.09.11

Hey, girls! What a lovely interview/meeting you had! I wish I had been there :plush27:. I am not sure I recognize all voices, there are some fans asking him questions. One voice sounds more often and louder than others, probably because the person was close to the camera. Is it Irina? Well, since I am not sure, I'll just call "Fans" when I translate the girls' questions briefly.


Fans: Today is not an Olympic day, not the Worlds and yet you looked so committed in your skating. You did it for whom? For the committee, for the specialists?

Zhenya: For you. For you- my fans, for myself, for Piseev (girls: :-) ha-ha-ha), for Gorshkov, for Mutko, well... for everybody!

Fans: How is your knee?

Zhenya: It's okay, more or less, but it still hurts.

Fans: How does the operation change your training routine?

Zhenya: Well, I am trying to keep the schedule normal. But if it hurts too much, I just stop training. If it doesn't hurt, I'll keep it going. But recently because of the test skating I had to train in any case. By the way today I was happy that I didn't feel strong pain when I landed a quad at the training. At a warm-up I touched the ice with hands but the pain in the knee was not awful. The most difficult part to do now, after the operation, is to sit in a sit spin. Also, I had to warm-up the body longer than usual. If I don't do it, the pain in the knee becomes unbearable. But don't worry! I'll do it! I had tougher times in my life.

Fans: Can you tell us a little more about your new programs? Everybody is very interested to know.

Zhenya: The SP will be the same that we planned from the start. The FP was changed. At first we started working on another FS, but then we changed the program and made absolutely another one.

Fans: We asked because Flade wrote in her interview that you chose the music for FS but for SP- not yet.
Another fan: Flade took that interview ages ago!

Zhenya: Yes, that's true. That interview took place long time ago. The point is my new programs, both SP and FS, are ready. We haven't finished footworks yet. My new choreographer is Irina Sharonova. She is not that famous but she is very smart. She is from St-Petersburg and she teaches at the N.A. Rimsky-Korsakov Saint-Petersburg State Conservatory. This year I tried to work with Zhulin, I worked with Lambiel, I planned to work with Browning. David Avdish is my friend, my choregrapher and the person who prepares me for the skating- stretch my body, etc. We discussed with Mishin a new choreographer and decided to work with Irina. We particularly wanted to work with a female choreographer, we think it will bring some new plastic lines in my skating.

Fans: Why your cooperation with Zhulin wasn't continued?

Zhenya: We worked with him and made one program that we thought would be my new FS. But then we changed our mind. It's just not mine yet (about Zhulin's FS- *letsy).

Fans: Have you ever thought at your camp in Italy, and especially after the operations, about finishing your career?

Zhenya: Yes, I thought, more than once. One day I got up, I felt fine, I worked hard, etc. On another day I just couldn't get up, I couldn't control my body, my head, I just wanted to hang my skates somewhere and fly far away on holiday. I sometimes felt angry with myself. It's really hard to come back for the second time, much harder than the first time.

Fans: What inspires you? Yana? (girls- :hi_hi_hi: )

Zhenya: Yana always inspires me. But also, I have the target, I have the idea and I have the desire to skate. Not just skate as #2 or #3, but as #1 of course. I want to skate in Olympics. Not just participate there but I want to win. I alread told in my previous interviews that I see this season as a mid-step. My main target is 2014 year. Before that I want to jump a new quad. I had some successful attemps of 4S and 4Lutz before the operation. But now, after the operation, it's impossible for me to do that stuff. For now.

Fans: What do your doctors say? How long time will the reabilitation take?

Zhenya: It depends. You can't predict it. When they operated my right knee, I could get all my skating stuff back in a month. Of course I felt some pain but in general it was okay. But with the left knee things are not that fine. My current diagnosis is related to bone tissues (hell knows how to translate that med term- *letsy :-( ). Before between the bones there was a full cartilage. Then they cut a part of my meniscus and now the bones are rubbing each other directly. It's not that horrible, the docs say, but I shouldn't overexercise my left knee for sometime.

Fans: Your global target is Sochi. But about your plans for this year?

Zhenya: My current one is the Championship of Russia. If I made it to the team, I will go further, to the Europeans and Worlds.

Fans: After this test skate what do you think about our team?

Zhenya: You saw everything, right?

Fans: Yes, we did, and we were disappointed a lot.

Zhenya: Well, I am sure everybody will do his best. We shouldn't think that if the guys couldn't skate well now, so they wouldn't be able to skate well in the future too. That's just not the right way of thinking. Everyone will skate well, with quads, footsteps, combos, etc. Actually, I shouldn't think about how poorly they skated. I should think about my own skating and do my job.

Fans: What about Switzerland and the promised surprise? We are dying to know!

Zhenya: You'll see it soon in the magazine "Hello".

Fans: Will it be a big surprise indeed?

Zhenya: Well, it depends. For me it was a very big surprise and I am interested to know what will come after that.

Fans: Our shouting before the skating to support you, does it disturb you? We are not on your way to concentrate?

Zhenya: NO! I am really grateful to all my fans and I told that in the interview to "Komsoml'skaya Pravda". Your support, your cheering, the banners that I see everywhere, all this helps me a lot and I feel much happier. Please keep doing that!

Fans: How does the new judging system reflect on your training?

Zhenya. It changed things entirely. The FS became much more difficult. For example the footstep that I did today is only of Level 1. It looks emotional but technically it is only Level 1, because it doesn't have a lot of stuff that Level 2-4 requires. I personally like when the footwork looks impressive. But the current judging system requires to perform a lot of tricks during the footstep. Sometimes it might look boring and less colorful when you are in a hush to perform all of them in order to hit the right level. The effectiveness might suffer but the scores will win.

Fans: I agree. Let's take ice dancing. I used to watch it a lot because it was interesting. Now I don't watch it at all because they all skate the same things.
Another fan: That needs a really good choreographer to succeed in both- effectiveness and pleasing the technical commettee.
One more fan: Chan, for example, with his huge second mark. Judges do love him! Or maybe it's because of his origin, he is Canadian after all (girls: :plush42: ).

Zhenya: Chan is good. He is doing a great work. Let him skate and I will tell my word in Sochi. (girls: ;;-))) ::yaz-yk: )


Zhenya: Today (on 3rd- *letsy) I was disappointed that I didn't do a quad. I should have tried it.

Fans: We heard you had a new tattoo.

Zhenya: Yes, I did (showed it). It' s a scorpion. Here I have "Yana" (in Japanese ヤナ- *letsy.) But when we with Yanochka have our children, I will write their names and the name "Egor" too. So here I'll have the names of all my children that the scorpion will be protecting.

Fans: We want to see your son Egor. Can we do that?

Zhenya: Of course you can. He is in St-Petersburg, training in an ice-hokey school almost every day. He is cute, active and energetic. He tried the skates for the very first time when he was 2 and a half. Then he didn't attend any school for sometime. But now we enrolled him in an ice-hockey club.

Fans: His mother doesn't object?

Zhenya: No, Masha is happy with this choice.

Fans: Have you thought about enrolling him in FS?
Another fan: Come one! You should pity your own children! ( :ni_zia: - *letsy)

Zhenya: No, we don't want him to be a figure skater. That's a too difficult sport, especially now. It's better to be in a game sport. You know, if you don't feel well, you can always wait for a while on the bench (joking, laughing). Of course any sport is very difficult. We chose ice- hockey. Maybe because it is on skates too! I am sure Egor will be fine there.
Thanks to you all a lot! :ki_ss:

After Yana, also Zhenya tweeted about yesterday's awful plane crash in Russia:

EvgeniPlushenko - 1 hour ago:

Мои искренние соболезнования всем родным, близким погибших и болельщикам ярославского Локомотива. Вы навсегда в наших сердцах! Вечная память

Re: Контрольные прокаты 03-04.09.2011 || Open Test Skating

This is Vera 's video :plush45: - спасибо Вера! :plush40:

Встреча с поклонниками в Одинцово / Meeting with fans 04.09.2011:


TRANSLATION: (thanks to Darina :plush39: )

- Evgeni: Now, of course, training again, and I suppose in late October – Samara or some other cities in Russia
- Girls: We are preparing for it.
- Yana: Are you gonna go?
- Girls: Yes, we'd like to go, now we think about the Worlds.
- Evgeni: Well, ОК, today the main thing was that I tried quad, because it's hard to overcome… and at the warm-up I also did two quads, not so clean but it was very close. Now I'm physically not ready to skate two days in a row yet. But the most important thing is that I have advanced, moved forward. Now we have to complete everything.
- Girls: And you should take care of your leg.
- Evgeni: Yes, I should heal my leg, it bothers… (to Yana)Well, let's go, Коtya).
- Girls: Good luck to you, goodbye!
- Yana and Evgeni: Thank you very much!
- Girls: Take a rest. Good luck.
- Evgeni: A master class? Yes. I’ll think and you also think what we can do for the fan-club. While I’m in Novogorsk (most of you are from Moscow, aren’t you?) you can come there and if you can skate, if you are interested, I’ll give a master class with pleasure. We'll rent the ice probably on Saturday or Sunday and skate for an hour or an hour and a half. Let us think and make such action. IMO, it’s good.
And also, while I’m in Moscow, I’d like to bring children from orphanages to Novogorsk, you’ll know about it.
- Girls: And we will be shooting video there.
- Evgeni: I want to do it before 16 September .
- Girls: You need some healing first.
- Evgeni: We’ll do everything in parallel.


:du_ma_et: Well, date for master-class will be now probably moved later (due Plushy's rehabilitation) but I am sure that it will still soon. :plush45:
For fans outside of Russia - I think Plushy will consider and about you later... :mi_ga_et:

Фигурист Плющенко после возвращения способен на многое - Рукавицын

МОСКВА, 11 сен - РИА Новости....
Evgeni Rukavitsyn is coach of Konstantin Menshov .... he always has some comment about Plushy, and they are always somewhere in between praise and malice :)-(:

Figure skater Plushenko after the return is capable of many things - Rukavitsyn

"I watched first Plushenko's skating, and I really liked it. It was just great. I, of course, will not do predictions, but that Plushenko after the return is capable of many things - it's obvious.

Evgeni is a great athlete, you can, at will, to treat him in terms of that his skating somewhere are not up to modern standards. But this, that Plushenko is always interesting - it's a fact. Here, on Test Skating, he came out - and, as usual, not dropped below some bars, below his level. "

Re: Женя в Твиттере & ВКонтакте || Evgeni at Twitter & VKont

Ok, Ok, girls, i understand. Maybe, he was only exaggerating...and he was too childish, but his fans aren't children. Relatively many people don't like the video. Oh, it doesn't matter, I'm going to like this video. :mi_ga_et:
I don't know why, I haven't yet read this post of yours, Lala :ne_vi_del:
Luckily you agreed with what Let's Talk said about that "famous" video, so I'm feeling less stupid! :hi_hi_hi:
Anyway, I have this quote for you:

"It takes a long time to become young." (Pablo Picasso)

The fans who don't like the childish side of Plush, are not true fans of our hero. Zhenya is a wonderful kind of man, so rare nowadays: he's strong, brave, a warrior capable to face any difficulties to reach his goals, honest, clear, a faithful friend... and a passionate man, so hot, so "desiderable"! In a word: a true man! He got all the good skills you should wish to find in a adult man.
But: he's also funny, sweet, crazy, wild, unpredictable, "childish". This is not a defect: this is miracle! In fact, warriors are often boring people.... Not him! His multifaceted mind inspires me every single day!
So Girls, be worried about his health, but enjoy his wonderful childish/adult mind: he's the best man in the world!
It's such a great honour to be his fans!

Re: Пресса о Жене, интервью Жени || Press about Evgeni ON Ic

I've read the T.Flade article also at WFS. Maybe WFS is more raw ("unedited"). :plush38:

For example
EP - I want to open my own skating school here in St. Petersburg. If Alexei Nikolaevich agrees with me, I would like to continue his school. Because I intend to train students with his system and technique. Yes, I will add my original process later as I got more coaching experience. I have this dream to build a school, not just a skating school with an ice rink, but maybe with a place where the young skaters can live train and study. I also would like to produce my own skating shows after Sochi when I retired. I have a lot of plans. I want to stay involved with skating and help to educate new athletes.

TF - You open new school at Yubileyny where you have been training since you were 11?
EP - I want to open my school which have two ice rinks for figure skating and ice hockey. I want to talk to top ice hockey players to establish our school together. This is the full details of my future plan. I will work hard for the growth of children and people's better health.

TF - Does anyone help your project?
EP - For now, private investors and my friends support me. Of course, I think my plan will be supported by the Russian government. When my plan became more concrete, I will talk to Dmitrii Anatolievich Medvedev and Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin to get permission about all of my plans. We still don't have enough ice rinks in St. Petersburg. Academy of figure skating and Yubileiny are too crowded. Room (for ballet or warm-up) is insufficient. We have only one room. My school must be equipped with a fitness centre or choreography room, Swimming Pool, Sauna, everything. ... [he talked about his dream school] ... I know it's difficult to make my plan reality. But this is good for children, coaches and figure skating.
I prefer WFS version to IFS version. IFS version was too edited and made me feel impersonal. :ga-ze-ta;

Тренер Алексей Урманов.: Плющенко способен выступить на ОИ-2014

13 сентября 2011, 17::20

Олимпийский чемпион-2006 Евгений Плющенко обладает достаточным физическим и психологическим потенциалом для того, чтобы достойно выступить на Играх-2014 в Сочи, считает олимпийский чемпион в мужском фигурном катании 1994 года, а ныне тренер Алексей Урманов .

Плющенко принял участие в завершившихся на прошлой неделе контрольных прокатах кандидатов и членов сборной России по фигурному катанию в Москве и Подмосковье.

«Честно говоря, я боюсь уже что-то предсказывать конкретное по поводу Жени и не буду этого делать, - отметил Урманов РИА «Новости». - Скажу просто, что на самом деле Плющенко большой молодец. Большой профессионал. Если Жене хватит здоровья и если он сам этого захочет, то до Олимпиады в Сочи он способен выступать».

(After Open Test Skating Alexei Urmanov said: I'm afraid to make any prediction about Zhenya but he was just great, he is a true professional and if his health permits him he will be able to compete in Sochi)
