ST. PETERSBURG, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The 2006 men’s Olympic figure-skating champion Yevgeny Plushenko spoke about his post-Sochi plans in a recent interview with Itar-Tass.
"I like Japanese figure-skater Yuzuru Hanyu. He reminds me of myself when I was 18. He spins like a top just as I did. I would not mind becoming his coach after Sochi,” Plushenko told Itar-Tass.
Plushenko’s post-Olympic plans also include a show of Olympic champions in which prominent figure-skaters like Stephan Lambiel, Brian Joubert and Johnny Weir will take part. “It’s going to be more than skating to music intermixed with short runs to which spectators of ice shows have got accustomed in recent years. The emphasis will be made on sport elements and components,” Plushenko went on to say.
“We are going to perform in 40 Russian and some European cities. The show of Olympic champions will kick off shortly after the Olympic Games in Sochi where I am planning to compete both in the individual and team events,” the Russian figure-skater said.
Plushenko has taken part in three Olympic Games. The one is Sochi will be the fourth and the last in his sport career. However, he did not exclude his new return theoretically. “Technical progress advances constantly. What if nano-falciform cartilages are invented and I will be able to get new abdominal rings? If that happens, I will continue competing further,” Plushenko said, jokingly or seriously.
The Olympic figure-skating competitions will take place in Sochi on February 6-20.
