SOCHI, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. A successful performance from Russian figure skater and twice Olympic champion Yevgeny Plushenko depends only upon his health, his choreographer, David Avdysh, said on Wednesday.
“Now everything depends on his well-being,” he told Itar-Tass. “Plushenko has been in this sport for so many years. He had hit highs and lows so many times! This is simply impossible for an ordinary person. In this respect he is unique,” Avdysh added.
Avdysh said he even felt no special excitement for Plushenko as he had felt at the previous three Olympics.
“Moreover, his victory in the team free skate event was not a surprise for us. It even seems to me that he could skate his programme even better,” the choreographer said.
The men’s individual short program event will begin on February 13.
