Could Pluschenko produce his jumps again?

Translation of an article by Jaroslav Korobatov from the Russian Language publication “Komsomolskaya Pravda” printed on February 21, 2008

A few days ago, Evgeny Pluschenko finalized his divorce from his wife, Maria Ermak.

Finished with the hardship of the divorce process, he immediately stated that he was ready to come back to amateur sports and even mentioned the specific dates.
He said that he planned the start of his new career for September/October of 2008. It would be a small national or international competition. He said that he was in good shape now and can easily do jumps of three and a half turns. If everything will go fine, he hopes to participate in the Vancouver Olympics.

But the emotional trauma of the divorce, the split of properties and the separation from his son, Egor, should have left a scar on the sportsmen. His fans are still guessing if he would be able to come back to his best form. The history of sports has a lot of examples of negative effects of emotional traumas on sportspeople’s careers.
