Evgeni Plushenko Shows How Figure Skating Should be Done at the Olympics
The 2014 Sochi Olympics are in full swing. The medal count between the Netherlands, Russia, Canada, the United States and countries from all over the world, continues to grow.
The winter sports of hockey, skiing, bob-sledding and even curling, all rank near the top of spectator’s favorites. But the one sport that seems to grab the most attention is ice skating. And whether you love him or hate him, Russia’s Evgeni Plushenko was one of the best men’s skaters to grace the ice.
Even though Plushenko had to withdraw from the men’s individual event because of a previous injury, many aren’t aware that he already has 4 gold medals: two gold and two silver. Plushenko is also married to music producer Yana Rudkovskaya, was elected to the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg in 2007 (though he left politics in 2012), won a singing/dancing contest in 2008 and was voted Most Stylish Man in Russia according to ‘Hello Magazine.’
So is it any surprise that someone would find a routine done by the man that was voted Most Stylish Man in Russia, change the music to the song ‘Pony’ by R&B singer Ginuwine, and give the 90’s routine a ‘Magic Mike‘ feel?
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, (ladies…it’s okay to blush and keep watching!) I give you ice skating the way it should be done at the Olympics!
