Evan Lysacek Says He Will Compete at Skate America

New, 1 comment
Stop me if you've heard this one, but Olympic champion Evan Lysacek says he is returning to competitive skating. Icenetwork reports that Lysacek will compete at Skate America.

Lysacek had been planning to participate in the Grand Prix and U.S. National Championships last season but could not come to a contract agreement with U.S. Figure Skating. I assume that the agreement has been reached for this year, but no word on the details. Not that those things would be made public, but I wonder who made the concessions.

So now we have (likely) Johnny Weir and Evan Lysacek competing against the younger crowd. And Jeremy Abbott. I feel like it's the aughts again!
