| Olympics Board|| re: Plushenko withdraws from Olympics - Cammie74 on 2/14/14 at 9:56 am|
Russia did have another skater ready, Maxim Kovtun who is just 18 years old and beat Plushenko at Russian nationals.
But Kovtun had done poorly at the World Championships last year in London, ON and only qualified one spot for the mens competition in Sochi so when he did poorly once again at Eu...

We'll know if Plushenko was faking next week when all the medalists are invited to skate a special gala. If he's out there, soaking up the attention, then yeah, he probably was faking and didn't want to be beat in this event. ...
| Olympics Board|| re: Plushenko withdraws from Olympics - Cammie74 on 2/13/14 at 2:07 pm|
He needed to pull out on Tuesday morning for a younger skater to get a chance to compete today; by waiting to the warmup, it was too late.
I'm sure NBC will spend 30 minutes on all the drama tonight of the withdrawal.
He'll be lucky to be walking at age 40 by coming back with his spine in su...

Pairs skating is basically singles skating with a guy and a girl doing lifts and throws.
Ice dance is dance on ice. You can't lift the girl over your shoulder and you have to dance one part of the competition (the short dance on Sunday night) to a certain beat--this year is the finn step/quicks...

That's ice dance and it will be on in a few days. The old looking us girl is Meryl Davis.

Yes, the Reeds choose to skate for Japan to have better opportunities on the international stage. Its a win-win situation as they get to go to all the main events and Japan has a decent dance team.
And Its common for skaters to switch countries. There's a girl from Houston, Texas (Kaitlyn Weave...
