Evan Lysacek

Biography ~

Evan Lysacek is the 2010 Olympic champion, 2009 World champion, 2009 Grand Prix Final champion and a two-time (2007 & 2008) U.S. National champion.

Evan was born in Chicago, Illinois and began skating at the age of eight. Following the 2010 Olympic Games, Evan was a celebrity contestant on Dancing with the Starts for the tenth season. He and his professional dance partner Anna Trebunskaya made it to the finals and finished in second place, behind Nicole Scherzinger (from the Pussycat Dolls) and Derek Hough.

He did not skate competitively in 2010–2011, nor did he announce his retirement. In June 2011, Evan received two Grand Prix assignments for the 2011–2012 season, 2011 Skate America & 2011 Trophée Eric Bompard, however he withdrew from the Grand Prix series. In keeping with his goal to participate in the 2014 Olympics Games in Sochi, Evan once again announced his intention to return for the 2012-2013 season, however after a groin injury, he withdrew from the 2012 Skate America and 2013 U.S. Championships.

With the 2014 Winter Olympics around the corner, Evan is now scheduled to compete at the 2013 U.S. International Figure Skating Classic and the 2013 Skate America competition.

If Evan is successful in making the 2014 Winter Olympics team, he will attempt to become the first man to win back-to-back Olympic figure skating titles in more than half a century. America’s Dick Button was the last man to accomplish the feat, winning in 1948 and 1952.
