SOCHI, February 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russian renowned figure-skating coach Tatyana Tarasova said the most important thing was that Evgeny Plushenko helped Russia to win gold in the Olympic team figure skating event.
On Thursday, Evgeny Plushenko, the first figure skater in the modern era to win medals in four Olympics, retired from competitive figure skating shortly after withdrawing from the men’s individual short programme competition for medical reasons.
“I have nothing to add to what Zhenya told journalists the day before,” Tarasova said. “He performed in the short and the free programmes of the team competition and entered the team who gave Russia the gold medal. Then he felt bad. Things like that can happen to anyone. And I cannot and will not ever regard an Olympic champion as a cheat.
