He set his personal best performance for a free skate in 2012, and his best for a short performance in Sochi during the team portion of the proceedings. Before his Thursday performance in the short program, Plushenko's back acted up, forcing him to withdraw.
It's been widely speculated that Plushenko would retire after the games.
