Plushenko says Lysacek is not the champion

Evgeni Plushenko says Evan Lysacek is not the champion because Lysacek didn't attempt a quad jump.

“Just doing nice transitions and being artistic is not enough because figure skating is a sport, not a show”
Guess what both scored 82.80 on artistry. It was the technical score that won it for Lysacek. I am not a professional, hell I still can't tell a triple axel from a triple toe loop but Lysacek looked like the better skater last night. He had more jumps...more combination jumps AND he performed them all better. Judges should look at the entire routine and not just one quad jump. GET OVER YOURSELF. If you blame anyone...blame yourself!

He did look pissed during the medal ceremony. I guess now we know why. I thought Lysacek was much better too!

Did his mama never teach him about not being a sore loser??

Even the commentators indicated that the precision of Evan's execution was superior to Plushenko's. Not by a lot, but possibly by enough to beat him.
