SOCHI, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Olympic champion Yevgeny Plushenko will perform in the individual men’s figure skating event despite suffering from pains in the back, president of Russia’s Figure Skating Federation Alexander Gorshkov told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Yesterday, Plushenko complained a little about his back pain. His coach, Alexei Mishin, had mentioned it first, and Plushenko confirmed his words later, saying he was feeling certain discomfort in his back”, said Gorshkov.
The skater had tried hard to do his best in the team program, "managing to perform the basic men’s elements such as triple and quadruple jumps quiet well".
"But his last two jumps were poorer, otherwise he would have scored higher," Gorshkov added. "All these moves allowed him to get quite high scores, which he deserved. I will refrain from making any forecasts and running ahead for medals remain to be won but there are no doubts Plushenko will participate in the individual event”, he said.
Men’s short and free programs are scheduled for February 13 and February 14 respectively.
