Plushenko was sent to the ice rink by his mother at age four. His mother liked figure skating and had some friends at
the rink. When Plushenko was 11 years old, his ice rink in Volgograd closed, and the boy moved alone to St.
Petersburg to train there. His mother followed later, while his father (a carpenter) and elder sister stayed in Volgograd.
Plushenko has landed quadruple toeloop-triple toeloop-double loop combinations in competition. His trademark is a
Biellmann spin, and so far, he is the only male skater to show this element in senior competitions. He decided to learn
this famous spin soon after he started to skate when he saw a girl doing it. Plushenko's parents never watch him
competing live, even if competitions are held at home, in St. Petersburg. "This has been a tradition since I was a kid,
and we don't want to change it now", he explains.
