Who is the oldest skater to land a quad at the ISU competitions? Is it Plushenko?

Actually, I think Konstantin Menshov would have him beaten there. Menshov is five months younger than Plushenko but he competed last season while Plushenko was recovering from his second back surgery, so he would have been older than Plushenko was in Sochi when he landed it at Russian Nationals in December.
Menshov is competing again this season, and Plushenko has also announced his intention to continue, so my guess would be that these two will continue to switch back and forth on who the oldest quad-lander will be until Plushenko's body finally falls to irreparable pieces, though Plushenchrist forbid it come to that.
