Two-time Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko shared his opinion about the men’s figure skating in Russia. His words leads to “Sport-Express”.
According to Plushenko, Russian figure skaters too sorry for yourself and not serious about training. “I was in the group of guys left, thank God. I go to the gym — and they have something in the mirror on the person looking. Narcissism. And you need to plow,” said he.

At the last Japan world Cup the best among the Russians became Kolyada, who took sixth place (262,44 points) behind winner of the competition — American Nathan Chen (323,42) — more than 60 points.
