Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko sounds off about losing to American Lysacek

  1. Pretty arrogant; poor sportsman. Too bad, he puts on a good ice performance.

  2. He is right. SPORT failed, actually it was done also when they found spare set of 'gold' whining medals.

    Now – there should not be mens or women figure skating – now unisex skating, because of such faulse winners, who demonstrate Womens figure skating 2o years ago
    shame to the SPORT (((

  3. what he doesn't realize it is about quality not quantity. his moves are big and done well, but intricate and heart felt it's not. plus his choice of moves don't match the music. sure patrick chan didn't win, but brings quality, he has such perfection in his intricate well timed heart felt moves. that is the future.

  4. After what happened to Canada the last skating olympics.. how can anyone even take the judging seriously…. its not consistent, its not honest… its just crap.

  5. I watched both Plushenka and Lysacek skate and Plushenka’s performance was good in the short program, but not the long program. Lysacek skated perfectly in both. Plushenka may be a great skater, or was, but his performance, regardless of the details of the program, was sloppy. His jumps were slanted and if he had done his best, the end result might have been different. He transmitted that no matter how he skated, he was going to win. Lysacek skated his heart out and his dedication and passion was transmitted. He deserved the gold and Plushenka didn’t. Plushenka comes across as a poor sport. Not a good attribute in an Olympic or world class sports figure.

  6. Plushenko was powerful, dynamic, strong. He lookes much better on the ice than Lysacek. Lysacek at the end of his long program, looked tired, weak, almost ready to faint. Listen the intervew with American Skaters Sasha Kohan and Stoiko. They were shocked with the result.
    Plushenko is a great part of the World ice skating history, he is a hero. He deserves much better attention. The NBC reports always take only one side. They need to create "cold war", evil images, conflicts. But Plushenko was bringing beauty and joy for millions of people for more than ten years. Go on internet, watch his fantastic performances in different countries, in Japan, Italy, with famous musicians, with Andrea Bochelli! Did NBC tell us about this. No. They were happy to create an image of an arrogant Russian man who was beaten by the American. So sad. World heroes deserves better.

    • Sorry "Natasha", Plushenko is an arrogant ice-punk! His skating sucked, with no heart in it! He was more worried about his "quadrupal" jump, than being artistic and fluid in his movements. He was jerky, sloppy, and inconsistent in his moves on the ice! He may be a hero in Russia, but not to the rest of the world!! I,m not really into figure skating, but even I could see that Lysacek was very fluid and artistic in his moves on the ice!! You need to look at the skating, in slow motion. Then you will see the difference in control and beauty of the skaters. Just beacause "you" say something, doesn,t make it so!! Plushenko has an additude problem, he,s so full of himself, he lost touch with art!! Better luck luck next time!!!

      • He is the hero in his sport, he is showing real sportsmanship here! He landed quad combo clean and should deserve to win Gold in Olympic! It is not ice-dancing lady! I just admired how he treated it like a sport! funny how you've mention to watch it slow motion in the only NBC channel?? They can manipulate how fast or slow and what angled they want to display. Don't be brained washed by the American media. I came across Plushenko in Vancouver 2010, just wondered why the media protrayed him so badly but he is so great! Love his ART! Plushenko is a star, he has given us countless performances worldwide, even with the artist Andrea Bochelli, Seal, and Famous ballet dancer Nijinsky in his 2006 Olympic program. JUST TUNE OFF the american tv for a while, watch his performance on youtube and you might probably see why

  7. Evan Lysacek has class — both on and off the ice.
    Plushenko does not. Boo Hoo; he is just a whining sore loser who did not deserve to win.
    Poorly executed routines will never win over consistent good routines.
    Take it home Plushenwhino……

    • obliviously you have been brain washed by the American media. What Plushenko display is like a hero, defending his sport. Olympics is about pushing limits, do you know what is Poorly executed routines? Your so called "consistent routines" Plushenko and many others performed like 20 years ago, Plushenko himself mastered and won at age 15! Don't make comment like this and show some class!!!

  8. This Russian dude sucks big time. Go back to your goofy country and quit crying… you pathetic loser! I hate people who try to steal the efforts of their competitors with their arrogance. If I were there, and i were nearby that podium when he stepped on to the middle gold platform…. I would have gone up and knocked the crap out of him, and left his behind flat on the ice. Then told him to go home to Russia now, before all of the Americans show you what really being a bad sport is all about. Idiot.

    • probably there's only one arrogant idiot here- you.

  9. "He is the hero in his sport, he is showing real sportsmanship here!" – You're dreaming. A HERO is someone that saves lives, moron, not a figure skater, and he's showing POOR sportsmanship not "real" sportsmanship.
    "He landed quad combo clean and should deserve to win Gold in Olympic!" – He DIDN'T LAND IT CLEAN, STUPID ASS. If he did landed it clean than maybe he would have won, get that through your thick skull. He doesn't DESERVE shit besides a kick in his boney ass.
    He didn't deserve the Oly's Gold Medal in '06 either. "It is not ice-dancing lady!" – It's also not Ice Jumping, dipshit, and if it were he'd still make stupid mistakes and lose as always.
    "I just admired how he treated it like a sport!" – I just laugh at how stupid you are. "funny how you've mention to watch it slow motion in the only NBC channel??" – Go back to school and learn how to write in meaningful sentences next time..

  10. "They can manipulate how fast or slow and what angled they want to display." – Airhead, they can't manipulate what ANGLE a jump is at – nutjob, everything is a conspiracy theory to you blonde twits that like the Pussy.
    "Don't be brained washed by the American media." – Look who's talking, you ARE AMERICAN yet you're perpetrating brainwashed BS YOURSELF from the stupid, arrogant Russians. Give me a break!
    "I came across Plushenko in Vancouver 2010, just wondered why the media protrayed him so badly but he is so great!" – If he was so great, why the fuck can't he grow up and take responsibility for his MISTAKES? The American Media didn't portray him as anything, he portrays HIMSELF as you see him.

  11. "He is the hero in his sport, he is showing real sportsmanship here!" – You're dreaming. A HERO is someone that saves lives, mo, not a figure skater, and he's showing POOR sportsmanship not "real" sportsmanship.
    "He landed quad combo clean and should deserve to win Gold in Olympic!" – He DIDN'T LAND IT CLEAN, estupido. If he did landed it clean than maybe he would have won, get that through your thick skull. He DESERVE shit besides a kick in his boney behind.
    He didn't deserve the Olys Gold Medal in '06 either.
