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 Plushenko...you 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!
