Evgeni Plushenko is planning a comeback to defend his Olympic figure skating title at the Vancouver Games.

Plushenko’s agent, Ari Zakarian, says the three-time world champion is back training with longtime coach Alexei Mishin and already has mastered two quadruple jumps.

“Evgeni is really focused on the training. He took away all his major show appearances, and he is looking to the Vancouver Olympics,” Zakarian said Wednesday.

Plushenko has not competed since he overwhelmed the men’s field at the Turin Olympics.
