The figure skater said that he underwent a course of physiotherapy in Israel, and doctors temporarily banned him from participating in competitions. But Plushenko continues to train sparingly to prepare for the 2018 Olympics.
This summer, figure skater Evgeny Plushenko began to actively prepare for the 2018 Olympics. But an unexpected recurrence of a back injury did not allow him to continue training. Shortly thereafter, the athlete was forced to leave for Israel for examination. In this regard, rumors appeared in the media about the upcoming operation of the skater. Also, the Director General of the Russian Figure Skating Federation Alexander Kogan, in a conversation with reporters, mentioned that the figure skater is planning an operation in the spring to eliminate back problems.
But the other day Plushenko denied all rumors about the operation. According to him, he was treated in one of the clinics in Israel, where he underwent a course of physiotherapy, but there can be no talk of drastic measures. Eugene also said that the doctors allowed him to perform all jumps, except for the quadruple. As it turned out, the crack in the spinal disc of the celebrity appeared due to overload during training.
Now the athlete plans to restore his he alth and continue training, but in a sparing mode. Plushenko believes that a temporary suspension from the competition does not give him the right to complete relaxation. He has a positive attitude and is trying his best to qualify for the 2018 Olympics.
