So by now you probably know that Evgeni Plushenko's web site awarded, at one point, a Platinum Medal to the Olympic Skater for his LOSING performance.
Never mind the fact that there is no such thing as a platinum medal, it just sounded better to them and looked Really Cool!
Of course now, that claim to fame no longer exists and he has a statement which now claims he had no knowledge nor did he endorse such a post.
I saw his performance and while he did more than one quad jump, All his jumps were just a bit off. Still it was an impressive performance and he is a talented athlete.
Unfortunately, quads are like blow fish sushi, one should not attempt it unless it is perfect.
