This aired as a Tease before the Men’s Short Skate at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Yevgeny Plushenko, Russia’s most famed male skater, had essentially come out of retirement to skate his last Olympics. He was outstanding in the Team Event, solidifying Russia with Gold in that category. Thus, the world was anticipating his skate in the Men’s Short and Free to see what he had left in him.
Plushenko did not grant NBC an interview, so I produced this piece with all found sound.
