Plushenko retires...but he will be back!

Evgeni Plushenko announced his retirement from conpetitive skating yesterday.
It is sad news, such talented skater is not to be found again. I admire his great achievement.

Latest news (February 19)
I read FOX sports (US sports news) today,
It said,"Perhaps Sochi won't be Evgeni Plushenko's swan song".
At a Russian talk show,he told that he may come back to Pyeongchang Olympic in 2018 :)
He said,
"I don't exclude the possibility that I want to remain in sport,to prove it to many people and to myself."
I take my hat off to his unyielding spirit!
