SOCHI, February 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Two-times Olympic champion Artur Dmitriyev told Itar-Tass on Friday that Japanese figure-skater Yuzuru Hanyu had fairly won the Olympics in Sochi despite two falls in his free skating program.
“Anything can happen at the Olympics. However, despite the falls, Hanyu deserved to become the champion. Had he skated his free programme faultlessly, he would have scored a phenomenal sum of 300 points,” Dmitriyev explained.
According to Dmitriyev, it is now impossible to say what potential chances Evgeni Plushenko would have had in the struggle for medals in the individual tournament.
He said it was hard to say how Plushenko who had won the team event would have skated his free programme even if he were in his best form.
“Anything can happen at any competition, let alone the Olympic Games where everything is absolutely unpredictable,” Dmitriyev said in conclusion.
