Plushenko Banned From Skating Competition

2006 gold medalist and 2010 silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko has been banned from all future ISU events because he participated in exhibitions in March and April without ISU approval.

This means Plushenko cannot skate in any ISU events, meaning the Olympics, European Championships or World Championships, as well as Grand Prix events. Plushenko had stated he intended to skate in Sochi, which brings up the question of whether this was a mere misunderstanding, or was Plushenko deliberately disobeying the ISU?

The Russian figure skating federation said there was a misunderstanding in the back and forth paperwork that always accompanies these exhibitions.

Plushenko has 21 days to appeal this ban, or else Sochi will be without perhaps its biggest star.
