Have you accepted Plushenchrist into your life today?
Alexey Mishin, a coach, said that they couldn’t withdraw Evgeni and let Maxim Kovtun to do the job because to do so Evgeny had to have an injury (deadline for this replacement was 8 AM, Monday, free skating competition was finished by 11 AM, Sunday, not earlier) right after his last performance and he was okay back then. He felt great pain this morning but it was too late to do anything and he asked for powerful painkillers and it didn’t help. He was doing warm-ups right before his performance and he heard his back pop when he was doing a jump. He tried to jump once more and he couldn’t feel his legs so the jump was bad. He understood that he can’t skate and withdrew (only before that he tried to pull himself up but couldn’t because it’s not something a man can control).
So please. It was not selfish, he didn’t try to make a spectacle, he’s a serious sportsman and doesn’t do things like some attention-seeking popstar. He’s a legend and a hero.
Was Maxim better? Ehhhrrr… From what I saw this guy’s nerves are not the best. But I really don’t know him that good to make a judgement. But you must understand that Plushenko coming to Sochi not his own doing, it’s not a decision that could be made by one person and not Plushenko decides these things. Did he want to participate? Yes. Did he have the capacity? Fuck yes. Is he a fighter? Only an idiot would say no. Did his body betray him? Unfortunately yes. Is it something that can be controlled? NO.
And now you can all relax and stop this ridiculous hating, ok?
I’m more worried about Plushy’s health and his feelings towards not skating again at this point really :/ Shame on the people giving him hate over this.
So. Haters can go and suck a big one because this shit is serious.
So the pop Evgeni heard when he jumped during warm-ups? It was one of the four pins that holds a disk in his spine in place. This one pin cracked. So he should be more than happy that he decided not to skate. And haters should…
