Don't know what to say about Plushy. But there are still Verner, Takahashi, Oda, the swedish guys, Lindemann Weir, Lysacek. And if you want to see a rivalry watch Takahashi and Oda Very Happy Each other will try to be at list the best japanese skater if they would not be able to be the best in the world. Razz

It is always sad when top competitors retire, but there are always many others vying for the top & I think that the mens event will remain interesting & competitive.

Yes I miss them too, Plush, Alexei and Lambiel were the ones why I started watching Figure skating...
Ofcourse there are other competitors, but still it won't be all the same

I didnt know where to write it, I have found an interesting interview with Lambiel on the Absolute Skating.

Part I http://www.absoluteskating.com/interviews/2009stephane_bruno_patrick.htm
Part II http://absoluteskating.com/interviews/2009lambiel.htm

I want to warn all of you who like him that dont read my comments from this on, this is mainly meant for girls as Irina :naughty15kz: Twisted Evil

(I mean, really. I dont like Lambiel and I will criticize him now because Im in a mean mood. But I dont want to hurt anyone, thats why I put it as spoiler.)

I've been reading (linked to a newspaper article) that the Swiss fed is pressuring him to compete at Worlds so that they can have two spots at the Olympics & that he has to decide by 2nd March.

I don't know what to make of it - I understand that Stephane has maintained a high technical standard in the shows he has been doing but a Worlds competition is always another matter, especially for a guy with chronic knee poblems.

Lambiel is not my favourite skater but I hope that he doesn't get forced into doing something that may cause him trouble (such as even more surgery & lifelong pain) later, not to mention the mental stress of suddenly having to do a major competition.

I would assume that if Lambiel has chosen to stop training and competing that his heart isn't in all the efforts necessary to train, compete, and to gain points. What confounds me is that the Swiss Federation would want him to stay on the competition scene long enough to endure World's just so the Swiss Fed can be assured of two spots for the up-coming Olympics. That's nuts! If Stephan's heart isn't in competing, if he doesn't possess the necessary drive to put himself out there, heart and soul, to compete and gain a podium placement, why the hell does the Swiss Fed think that Lambiel can medal? If the guy's heart isn't in the effort, he'd not going to be able to focus well enough to get the job done. Add into that, the situation with his knees which, if they suffer more damage, are likely to become so damaged as to make any kind of skating impossible (career ending)!

It never ceases to amaze me that these skating federations care so little about the people who actually get out there and train and compete. These organizations are very willing to coerse these skaters into doing things which will ruin their health at every cost. If the skater goes along with it, whether under pressure from the Fed or not, they risk a very uncertain future if their efforts lead to serious, long-term injuries. The Fed certainly won't come to that skater's aid, and they should since they goaded the skater into it. I hope Lambiel tells the Swiss Fed where to stick it! Mad
