The corresponding restriction was introduced by ISU and is relevant for the short program. Plushenko believes that the ban is not too correct in relation to female figure skaters, because it can be regarded as an infringement of their rights. In this regard, the athlete does not doubt the need to remove the restriction. It only hinders the development of figure skating. At the same time, Evgeni Plushenko himself trains skaters who can perform the specified type of jumps.
There are no restrictions on quadruple jumps for men in the short program. In this regard, it is not clear to the athlete on what grounds this is prohibited for girls. Plushenko hopes to get ISU to cancel the rule, believing that he will receive support from the skaters.
