The Russian skater can’t compete in World championships or Grand Prix series after he skated in exhibition shows without ISU permission.

Evgeni Plushenko’s plans to compete at the Sochi Olympics could be on ice.

The Olympic gold and silver medalist has lost his eligibility because he skated in exhibition shows without receiving prior permission from the Russian figure skating federation, the International Skating Union announced Monday. Plushenko has three weeks to appeal the ISU’s decision.
