Olympian Makes Up A Medal To Soothe The Pain

| Filed under: Zportz


This is either brilliant or arrogant. We haven't decided quite yet.

There has been a lot of talk and controversy over this year's medal recipients for male figure skating. In the end, the judges gave Evan Lysacek of the U.S. the gold medal, while favored to win Evgeni Plushenko received the silver.

Or did he?

Many argue that Evgeni was robbed and that his performance was exceedingly better than Evan's. It seems Evgeni and his webmasters agree on this point as on his website, where a list of his awarded medals appears, it says that he won the "Platinum" medal at the Vancouver games.

See, he's being clever. Since platinum is more precious that silver AND gold, he's awarding himself the medal that doesn't exist to prove his point that he should have won.

Okay, we made up our mind - arrogant.

You get what you get and you don't get upset or make up shiz just to make yourself look better. Take your sour grapes and head back to Russia. Maybe when the games come to you in 2014, you'll have better luck.

And if not, you can just give yourself more fabricated awards.

    What an a-hole!

  2. 2

    the poor sportsmanship displayed by plushenko is shameful. as my mother used to say, "the world does NOT revolve around you, you are NOT the queen of the may." this is not the behavior of an olympic athlete; this is the behaviour of a spoilt celebutard who insists he must always have his way. way to tarnish the end of your career. plushenko, you will forever be remembered as the bratty little bitch who lost in vancouver and couldn't be a man and take it. what a total and compete loser.

  3. 3

    Douche. Unworthy athlete, poor sportsman, sore loser, rude, & in dire need of some rhinoplasty & a decent haircut.

    Yes, well, you give yourself fabricated jobs that fail all the time; you're no better in the humility department either, Parasite. Difference is the Russian guy has some talent while you, so sadly, do not.
    Why does that guy make me think of a young Joe Elliott?

  7. 7

    Earth to Plushenko, figure skating judging is now based on points (thank goodness). Everything has a point value and you just weren't good enough. Yes, you threw a quad, but the rest of your program stunk and you did NOTHING in the last minute and a half. If you look at the programs side by side, Evan is the clear winner… GET OVER IT!!!! Platinum medal = whiny baby that will never have any respect again.

    Did Dancing With The Stars call??
    Dude ya gotta keep calling

    What a sore loser. Or better yet, what a loser.

  10. 10

    He's not arrogant. He is delusional. The sad thing is I was rooting for him cause I had never seen a man want an ice-skating title so bad.
    Now he just looks like a sore pathetic loser.

    His performance might have been more difficult, but there were faults. His landing was bad on two occassions. The American performance was flawless.

  11. 11

    this guy is a prick.. did you know that when he was awarded the silver medal he hopped onto the gold medal platform first then jumped down to the silver? I think his routine was boring and he wasn't nearly as artistic or graceful as Evan.. he thinks because he had a quad in his program he should have won, but the skaters are also judged on artistry and Evan blew him away in that category.

    He was good…but I don´t like him. Didn´t like him before either…
    When he speaks on TV, it´s often bitter bitter bitter…all the time…
    He matches his nowadays WIFE…THAT WOMAN is one of the kind…even more MORONIC than him…Good ,people ,that you don´t understand Russian…haha..It´s a relief for the world that the rest of the world don´t get their BUBBLING ..

  13. 13

    his unsportsmanlike attitude is getting silly. get over it. the russians win all the time at the skating and the gymnastics. they aren't used to losing. look at that svetlana khorkina, also a total bitch.

  14. 14

    Sore Loser and ugly too. Just take it gracefully and stop being such a jerk!

  15. 15

    I still can't believe that he didn't win. He's awesome! Oh and americans seems to hate him just because he's russian. (Guys, the Cold War ended like 19 years ago : D)

  16. 16


  17. Heh says – reply to this


    Im not a fan of sore losers but his performance was MARKEDLY superior to Lysacek's so he definitely was robbed but that happens in the Olympics sometimes so he should suck it up especially since he's won before but yes he is the true winner, I was actually really shocked when he lost

    if this was an american then it wouldnt be arrogant at all would it perez it woulda been brilliant

  20. 20

    I'm confused because I went to the website and he didn't say anything about a Platinum medal. It just showed all his medals…with nothing written underneath. Clarify?

  21. 21

    I don't know anything about the rules and regs of olympic skating but just from what I saw Evan skated better than Plushenko

  22. 22

    NO CHANCE Evan Lysacek's performance was beautiful! even though i was rooting for Lambiel :(

  23. 23

    It's all about what it REPRESENTS. And his medal represents nothing but arrogance.

  24. 24

    this year the russians seem to be poor losers. evan gave an excellent flawless performance even without the 'quad.'
    the russian dance team looked like they were smelling poop when they were standing on the podium with their bronze medal during last night's ceremony.
    they have no grace when it comes to loosing.

  25. 25

    He did a quad, but Evan SKATED BETTER! On trick does not a gold make. This guy doesn't deserve a medal at all for his poor conduct and sore loser status.

  26. 26

    That is arrogant and genius. Lol!

    He should've won.

  27. 27

    Lysacek deserved the gold without a doubt!

  28. 28

    He's a one trick pony who was out-performed on the ice. With the exception of his one big trick his performance was mediocre at best. He was fortunate that he came away with silver.

  29. 29

    Re: Heh – His performance was NOT "Markedly superior." His degree of execution was abysmal. He messed up - however slightly - every jump he tried during the long program. Evan did not. Plushenko lost by less than a point - which means if he had not messed up just ONE of his jumps he would have won the gold medal. Plushenko is a good, old fashioned sore loser who deserved to lose.

  30. 30

    Awww, wittle Russian mullet boy is throwing a temper tantrum. I guess a guy who thinks that haircut is attractive could also be delusional enough to convince himself that he was robbed, or that anyone cares what he thinks.

  31. 31

    Re: jewsa – WRONG! This is not about anyone being American or any nationality. Plushenko is simply being a sore loser.
    If the judges thought someone else skated better…then someone else skated better. The Olympics are about unity between all the countries of the world and Plushenko is ripping at the bond every time he lets his pride rear its ugly head.

  32. 32

    Re: RandolPants
    I heard about Plushenko's website from a friend of mine this morning, went to the site and saw the captions under the medals. I just went back a few minutes ago. I wonder if they took the captions down because he is getting slammed all over the internet about this.

    He's a douche. And he has a mullet. LAME! :0)

    Re: MichelleInWonderland – Umm no… we don't like him because he is an asshole.

  34. 34

    let him keep talking, whining, etc. judges don't like to be called out. if he runs into the same judges elsewhere, he is not going to fair anybetter and then it will be because they do not like him. This time though, he just wasn't the best….. needs to get over it.

  35. isy83 says – reply to this


    Evgeni Plushenko rules!!! Jury you stole the gold medal…you deserve the gold!!!good choice get the platinum!

  36. 36

    What a loser…

    Re: tigrrrlilly
    Couldn't have said it better… the EGO is downright DISGUSTING.
    Whatever happened to "personal best" and "competing only with yourself" ?? What happened to the so-called "spirit of the Olympics" ?
    But in a sense, it's not surprising. We currently live in a world where it's ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, STATUS, APPROVAL AND WORSHIP.
    (Too bad when you die, you can't take your fucking medals with you.)
    I hope he loses his legs in a goddamned car accident and learns HUMILITY.
    The Olympics are a JOKE.
    "Let's all get together and pretend we like each other! And then when things don't go our way, we'll act like juveniles and selfish TODDLERS! And once it's all over, we'll go back to telling the rest of the world how to live, where to go to church, and how to exist on the scraps of money we rich pricks decide to 'help' them with."

  38. 38

    …whatever makes him feel better, I suppose.

  39. 39

    If he was an american, you'd be singing a different tune…

  40. 40

    hahaha the Russians sucked dirty asshole this Winter Olympics

  41. 41

    Here's what he can tell his grandkids someday:
    "Well, I tried hard and did the best I could, and I got second place. But listen to me, children… When you don't win at something, all you gotta do is WHINE loud enough and stomp your feet like a TODDLER, and …voila."
    Awwww, that's a great lesson.

  42. 42

    You guys are Americans so of cause youre gonna pick Evan, But this guy did an excellent job. If he feels he deserved to win, then he has the right. Let him do what he wants and get over it. Evan won, so be happy and forget about this guy. I thought Johnny W. did better than that Asian guy and was cussing at my tv. It was dumb, but I felt better. If this guy feels good doing this, then who cares.

  43. 43

    wow that cat looks like steve perry!

  44. 44

    Re: Heh – Markedly superior? You've got to be kidding me. Did you see the quality of his jumps? They were off balance, out of kilter and the landings were horrendous in quality. His footwork was lackluster and his fawning hip wiggling and kiss blowing was pathetic. One quad does not a performance make. If that was the case we would call it 'ice jumping' and not 'ice skating'. He thought he could waltz in and demand the gold after working for only 6 months on his routine. He didn't lose because he's Russian - he lost because he wasn't as good under the new scoring system (which gives points for not only tricks perfomed but the quality of those moves). He's a poor sport, poor loser and miserable excuse for a human being.

  45. 45

    If it had happened to an American athlete, you'd all be saying how horribly unfair this. Plushenko skated better than Lysashek. That's all there is to it.

  46. 46

    Without a doubt Plushenko was the best, smooth and athletic skater, with a quad followed by a triple ! Wow, stiff as a broomstick Evan should try doing that someday when he's not working on his tan. Yes definitely Evgeni deserves a triple platinum medal, how bright and smart to have thought of that. BRAVO Evgeni you are the brightest star on the ice, you deserved first place, there was cheating and I understand why you may sound bitter to some, the gold medal was stolen from you.

  47. Heh says – reply to this


    Re: jeb328 – Strictly from my point of view (Note I am not employed by the Olympics committee) just a random viewer but from what I SAW Pushenko gave a much stronger performance and he is by far the better skater, but ya cant win them all so better luck in 2014 I guess

  48. 48

    Always suspected he wears a size extra small athletic support and skivvys…

  49. 49

    How effing pathetic!

  50. 50

    seriously… seriously?!?! what kind of an asshole shits all over an Olympic SILVER medal!! does he realize how many millions of people have only DREAMED of a silver medal?? what a fucking prick. his performance wasn't all that great, yeah, he had a quad, but evan's performance was sooo much cleaner & exciting. they deserved what they got.

  51. 51

    Hahaha… how slightly "gangster". Funny marketing ploy, but yes.. he is yet the latest douche.

  52. 52

    He should have his own Douche Bag Olympics.
    P.S. Steve Perry wants his face & mullet back.

  53. 53

    You'd think as particular as the IOC is with representations, they would call him on it and make him correct it. Maybe it's just the coverage we're seeing but the US team seems to be grateful for what they get this year and just happy to be there. The attitude of Plushenko and his Russian supporters, and the South Koreans, is overshadowing their sports and is contrary to the spirit of the games.

  54. 54

    He should get the GOLD for poor sportsmanship.

  55. 55

    Wow, this guy just can't face up to the fact he's not as talented as his agent and government has told him. Sorry Russian skating federation but you've got a one trick pony. So he can jump and revolve four times, but he lacks grace, a sense of music, and good choreography. I'm no fan of Evan Lysechek either, but his routine was definately more balanced. And the sport if figure skating, not skate jumping. Somebody tell this looser, literally, that his 15 minutes of skate-fame are over. If he wants to learn the rules of the game, he needs to grow a sense of humility and learn to be a man and know he's been bested. Whinning ninny.

  56. 56

    What a load of BS. He thinks he should have won because he had a quad jump in his program. Well, good for you, clown, but every other (triple) jump you did looked wonky in the air. ALL of Evan's jumps looked wonderful, even if there was no quad in his program. It's not JUST about the degree of difficulty of one jump, pal. You didn't win the gold. You won the silver, which is still something to be proud of. Count your blessings and grow up!

  57. 57

    Sad to see such a talented person waste the spotlight on negativity. I saw a side by side comparison of the two performances and I think the judges got it correct. Plushenko did pull the Quad, but his entire performance was robotic, lacking passion, creativity and artistic presence. These athletes aren't judged solely on the ability to spin in the air. I'd love to see him refocus on becoming a better athlete and performer.

    It's an insult to the figure skating association. If you don't take them seriously when they give you a silver medal, how can you take them seriously when they give you a gold one? Or they're only right when they give you the top prize? Disappointed in you, Plushie!

  59. 59

    Ick! What an ugly human being, inside and out.

  60. 60

    What a joke. Plushenko is an even bigger attention whore than Mario.

  61. 61

    At first I thought this was Eminem doing some sort of prank photo. Ha. Just blur your eyes a little.

    What a sore looser!!!

  63. 63

    Bahaha he should've won Evan can't even do a quad, I thought the Olympics were sports?? Prancing around in flamboyant costumes seems to be the norm now, this so called sport is a joke….and Mario funny how you say you get what you get and don't be upset? lol so why did you get upset when you got slapped in the face by the Black Eyed Peas in Toronto? lol you got what you got and deserved it!!

  64. chlyn says – reply to this


    He only showed up so that Russia wouldn't miss an Olympic year without getting any figure skating medals. He's been retired for the last four years. He only recently decided to compete in the Olympics this year. So he basically showed up without being fully prepared and expected to be rewarded just for showing up and being the Great Plushenko.

  65. 65

    Re: Russians_R_Olympic_Losers – i think you are an ignorant loser.

  66. 66

    Weir did an exceptional job and got NOTHING. Talk about being robbed! We could all argue that the QuadMeister Plushenko "added up" to a high score technically but Evan's program was flawless and easier on the eye. Plushenko skated like a machine, not an artist. Evan has been gunning for that gold for years now. Get over yourself, Russkie

  67. 67

    before you comment on Russians, maybe you should check who are the coaches for your skaters! how come lots of american skaters are trained by Russians?

    and at least Pluschenko is not trying to get a gold medal by crying like few years ago canadian skaters - HA!

  68. 68

    Re: alysissa98 – xD that was brilliant! I thought so too !

  69. 69

    Um, nice try there Pez but you can totally see the craptastic photoshop job on your image. AND a quick trip to his website (thanks for that handy-dandy link there), you can see that he did NOT label those medals at all. He might me a loser for bitching about his medal (a medal that plenty of other skaters would be honored to earn), but you really take the cake by making this shizz up.

  70. 70

    ha! what a little baby!

  71. 71

    he needs to stop he's such a douche dude he lost the gold and he should get over it

  72. 72

    I am sorry if the kid got kicked out of the athlete's village for party pics then this dude making up and changing an Iconic symbol should get him in trouble too. Where is the Olympic commity on this one!!

  73. 73

    good for him he got robbed,the American just ice danced he didn't do any difficult jumps..Americans are assholes…all of them..

  74. t. says – reply to this


    is it just me or does he look like Joe Elliott from Def Leppard in this photo?

  75. 75

    Honestly, this really is inexcusably poor sportsmanship. If you look at the actual routines, Evgeni flubbed several of his moves, Evan was consistent throughout. When the guy who is used to winning ends up getting second place, obviously he's going to be less than happy, but where is that Olympic spirit and attitude we admire so much? Just be grateful to have had the opportunity to go to the games again and to make it on the podium. What a spoiled brat. Honestly, the man isn't two years old, he should start acting like an adult and accept that he didn't turn in his best performance.

  76. 76

    he is such a dick! the olympic commitee should make him take that down. he is NOT acting like an olympian at all. i think he should be stripped of his medal for the way he has been acting AND for trying to pass off the silver medal as platinum. GROW UP. you lost. get the eff over it.

  77. 77

    he was robbed actually. it is pretty obvious.

    Bwaaaa….. that is tops!

  80. 80

    The TRUTH is that JOHNNIE WEIR won!!!!!! They didn't give him the GOLD because he's gay…… otherwise, he would be GOLDEN! This Russian idiot is a bunch of sour grapes because his performance wasn't perfect (it wasn't, he made mistakes which cost him…DUH!) and even though the one that won was good (sorry, but the truth is the truth…) was good, better than the Russian jerk (OMG, NO sportsmanship, class or manners AT ALL!) he wasn't as good as WEIR!!!! In 2010 and we're still stuck on things that have NOTHING to do with skating, I'm so tired about all this. Johnnie Weir should have that Platinum Medal and the %##%&* Russian should be put down like the lowlife he is…. he should be blacklisted from ANY competition! And now the Russians are gathering votes (as if this would sway Olympic officials) to take the Gold away from the US Winner…. GIVE IT TO JOHNNIE WEIR…. LET'S VOTE OURSELVES TO PREVENT THIS JERK FROM EVER COMPETING AGAIN!YAY!!!!

  81. 81

    Huh. Well, they both delivered unbelievable performances, but in the end, Lysacek's was more refined, smoother, on jumps. Plushenko needs to grow up. And platinum medal? Really?

  82. chlyn says – reply to this


    @ ya-whateva:

    This story has been all over the news; Perez didn't "make it up." Also, the "platinum" label was on the website earlier and has been documented by other news organizations, so the screencap wasn't doctored. If you have so much dislike for the website owner, I wonder why you waste your time reading his posts and commenting.

    It was the hot topic on all the radio stations on this evening's commute.

    I don't normally stick up for the States, but in this case, I will because this GUY is a fucking douche bag… He fucking thinks he is GOD…. just because he BARELY landed a quad… what a sore SORE loser… I am so glad the American EVAN won, he deserved it, he was graceful & he was technical…. that dickwad was neither. he just thought that he was good cuz he BARELY landed a quad….

    anyways this guy is a primadonna, he was knocked down into his place, but he can't take it… and hes HELLA UGLY

    this was his last olympics too right??? hahahah sucks to be him

    of course YOU'D think it's arrogant of him, you're american.

  88. 88

    The Russian pair in the ice dance are being sore losers too, publically saying that the Canadians didn't deserve to win, that they were the best (they got bronze) The russians act like they own figure skating! Get over it.

    @chlyn -
    I didn't say I hated this column or website, I was only talking about this particular post. But thank you for attempting to speak for me, however your spokesperson services are not needed.

  92. 92

    Dude should be thankful for so many things. He is behaving like a two year old.

  93. 93

    Meh, I still love Evgeni. Also he is right - male figure skaters should be able to land quads. If they can't, then they should just be in the women's category.

  94. 94

    hes brilliantttt
    still can't believe he lost to Evan..
    its almost laughable!

  95. 95

    What a douche. Sigh.

    Oh well. Patrick Chan got fifth. I'm happy.

  96. 96


  97. 97

    I didn't like Evan's performance… it lacks what Johny has; passion… beauty… dance… elasticity, beauty! it's so, uh, choreographed, he looks like a stick…

    Johnny is awesome, he's kind of immature and all, but the guy does love what he does and does it with grace. Like swan :)

    Plushenko is pretty awesome, but he's letting this get the best of him, and what he should be doing is being grateful that he didn't study all that much, showed up for the test and still got away with scoring a B+, that alone is pretty awesome… he wasn't in top shape, and was also overconfident of his ability to score gold even though he had retired and been away for a while…

  98. 98

    Re: MichelleInWonderland – WTF are you talking about? We hate him because he's Russian? He clearly did NOT have a clean artistic program like Evan did. So he can do a quad. So what? I happen to think that quads are ugly. I'm not impressed at how fast you can spin. I'd rather see a program like Evans that has a lot more elements that are done flawlessly than Plushenko's one quad! His program was full of errors and it was boring. He needs to grow up and move on. He blew his last chance and he's bitter. THank GOD he'll be to old in 2014 to compete. I can't take anymore of this spoiled brat.

  99. 99

    Re: belibtn53 – Weir was good too but he wasn't anywhere near the top of the pack going into the long program. He blew it on his first day. I'm really tired of people like you insisting others were against him because he's gay. Stop insulting everyone. When a gay person loses it's not all a conspiracy for fuck sake!!! Some people throw the "gay card" out there as easily as black people throw the "race card". Always an excuse.
