Evgeni Plushenko: “My disqualification is Piseev's revenge.”

Image

2006 Olympic champion and Vancouver Olympics vice-champion Evgeni Plushenko has begun training after a short break, however, he does not rule out the possibility that he will only perform in shows this season. He blames the leaders of the Russian Figure Skating Federation for this. He talked to a NV correspondent about this.

- Evgeni, are you already preparing new programs for the upcoming season?

- So far, only on the level of ideas. I have begun training, but I'm already behind in the schedule; I can't say which competitions I'll start with.

- Why are you not fulfilling your training plan?

- I had planned a sports meet in Italy, starting on June 14th, which, unfortunately, I had to turn down – the Federation refused to pay for it. My trainer, Alexander Mishin, was told: let Plushenko go and buy the tickets himself, and during the meet we [Mishin + Plushenko] would be paid 21 dollars a day. But how can we exist on that sum in Europe? And it's incomprehensible, why on earth should our daily allowance should be paid in dollars, and not in euros? Think about it: how much a hotel room costs, and we need to eat well. These are all trivialities, of course, but they cause unpleasant problems. That's why I said I wouldn't go to the sports meet if the Federation's position didn't change. I'm ready to slave without weekends for three years until the Sochi Olympics, but only if our whole system of figure skating changes. I want bureaucrats to finally start treating trainers and sportsmen with respect.

- In your opinion, will anything change with the election of Alexander Gorshkov as the new President of the Federation?
- I wouldn't want things to stay as they were before, so no one asks: “Why didn't we win the Olympic Games?!” I'm not hiding that, right now, in our vein of sports the situation is lamentable, and, while it's not too late, a change is needed.

- Are you still bothered by the trauma, because of which you couldn't take part in the World Championships in Turin?
- I had two micro-operations in Germany: my spinal nerves were cauterised. Then 8 injections were made into my ankle joint, and I still need to have injections done in both my knee joints. Nevertheless, I feel good and ready to train.

- You were threatened with disqualification, because you didn't go to the WC. Has this problem been resolved?
- A meeting will soon take place in the ISU, and, just maybe, I will actually be disqualified. I mean, I don't know who will be defending my interests. We have talked about this with Anton Sikharulidze, we thought that he would become the Federation President, and the problem could be solved. But Gorshkov was chosen, and I have not yet talked with him. It should not be forgotten that the General Director of the Federation is Valentin Piseev. To all intents and purposes, he is still the one who makes the decisions. That's why I think that things will stay the same as they were before the Vancouver Games. We need to put young, energetic people at the wheel, people who understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, who are not just wearing out the seats of their pants. We need to keep pace with time. Everyone moved on to computers and cell phones a long time ago. I mean no offence to David Avdysh, who is not only my choreographer, but also a very close friend, when I tell the story of how I taught him to use a mobile. I bought him a phone, paid for the connection, and made him carry it all the time. Avdysh kept forgetting it at home, until he understood what a convenient thing it was. I repeat once again: we need to develop, to progress. By the way, I don't know a single sportsman who likes Piseev.

- You're not afraid of saying such things, even though you know that Piseev begrudges criticism of himself?

- And he's punishing me for my words. You think they want to disqualify me for nothing? It's revenge, because I asked the President of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev, to take the work of our Federation under his control. Moreover, I myself hold grudges for a very long time. And I haven't forgotten that no one fought for me in Vancouver.

- It is thought that [Russian] figure skaters ought to get two golds in Sochi.
- Seriously?


- One of the golds is planned to be yours. 

- Oh, I don't know. I'm aiming for a fight, but we'll see when we're there.

- It'll be a shame if Evan Lysacek doesn't go to Sochi, and you won't be able to get your revenge on him for Vancouver. 

- For me, the important thing is to win a medal in Sochi; what quality [type] medal is unimportant. If I end up with a medal, I'll become unattainable for other sportsmen for many, many years, and that is indeed what I want. I dream of doing what no one has ever done in figure skating.

it might be interesting to all, to read what not only Plushy's "non-Russian" fans, than and people which is in general and not are Plushy's fans think about this shameful behavior of Russian sports officials (Piseev), according to a legend of world sport, such as is Plushy

:plush36: You feel the same way too?? I think we all feel this way. Especially the part where he says that noone fought for him in Vancouver, it's ....i don't have words for this. :plush27:
Internal affairs is the absolute disaster of good and genuine athletes. If the federation and bureaucrats don't wake up and embrace the good athletes they are in for an unpleasant surprise at Sochi.
Plushy we are with you and YOU ARE THE BEST!!! :ro_za:
