SOCHI, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s two-time Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko will put on an outstanding performance in men individuals at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia’s Sochi, his coach Alexei Mishin said on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old figure skater struggled with back injuries over the past two skating seasons, but grabbed his second Olympic gold last week at the Sochi Olympics in figure skating team event. He won his first Olympic gold at the 2006 Winter Games in Italy'’ Turin.
“Zhenya completed the first part of his work and did it with dignity,” Mishin said speaking about Plushenko’s performance in team’s competition.
“He will be fulfilling his second part of the task in the way to leave only kind and good memories with spectators.
On Thursday night Plushenko will be the seventh of 30 skaters to skate men's short program, which he will be performing to Tango de Roxanne music by Edvin Marton.
“As for the [starting] number, I can say that it is not the number that makes a man lucky, but a man, who makes the number lucky,” Mishin said.
Men’s short and free programmes are scheduled for February 13 and February 14 respectively.
