Figure skating is one of those sports that looks graceful and beautiful but takes tons of effort, training, strength, and coordination to pull off that way. Audiences have been wowed by the feats of figure skaters for years, with the talent and skill placed into every trick and routine! Evgeni Plushenko was just one of many skaters who had the crowd on their feet – but he did so in an unorthodox way! The Russian figure skater – who has won two gold and two silver Olympic medals – has always been known for his tendency to enjoy performing comedic skating routines.

In a bright red jacket, Plushenko began his routine gently swaying to the tune of “Sex Bomb” by Tom Jones, which will probably strike some as a very odd choice for a skating routine. But from the beginning, the audience could already sense his comedic genius!

And then came and even bigger surprise – when the vest was also shed, revealing an unnaturally muscular physique underneath – courtesy of a local costume store!
#ThrowbackThursday It's been a long time since the king Plushenko performed his exhibition "Sex Bomb". But it's still a masterpiece and every time I watch this, I can't stop laughing! 😂😂😂
