    The 2012 Skate America website has an updated entry list. Lysacek was added to the Skate America entry list on August 10th.

    The Skate America site still has Evan listed under competitors. I didn't see "stand by" anywhere. ????

    Someone said they saw "stand by" somewhere-I dont know where-but when I go to the site, he is listed just like before, no special notes so I am unsure how this all started :confused:

    Evan Lysacek has withdrawn from Skate America "due to a groin injury"; Armin Mahbanoozadeh has replaced him - press release:
    http://www.usfsa.org/Story.asp?id=48513&type=media

    "Lysacek expects to compete at the 2013 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Jan. 20-27, in Omaha, Neb."

    Hope Evan recovers well, but to be honest I'm not even counting on him being at U.S nats. this year, recovered or not. Im happy for Armin though :cheer::D

    I notified the board to stand by on 9/6. I was sure that he would not be at Skate America, but it was not my place to break the full news.

    I heard recently that Lysacek was skating pretty clean run-throughs and was looking good, so I wouldn't count him out just yet.

    ETA this article link in which Phil Hersh reports
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sport...out-of-skate-america-20121010,0,7288085.story (original article has since been updated with quotes from Lysacek)

    A complete recovery to Evan.
    I hope we will see him compete at Nationals - or before.

    Well I hope he recovers and does compete in one of those B competitions. I would like to see how he stacks up with the current crop of American men at Nationals.

    I would think there's financial incentive to come back- endorsements and all - he's worth more competing.

    Is this the same injury that kept Evan from skating at Champs Camp?

    Apparently, yes. From Hersh's article:

    Better to heal well now than risk more serious injury later.

    Most of the regular show cast who saw him train in his early Sun Valley trip this Summer reported he looked better than ever. Easy quad in both programs, new combinations (3 Lutz half loop 3 Flip) and Amazing footwork. I hope to see him back in top health again soon...
     
    Nan and (deleted member) like this.

    I saw a video of Evan's Sun Valley performances (Poeta & I Believe I Can Fly), and he looked fantastic. I especially liked his performance to Poeta. His jumps were crisp, and his footwork was amazing. IMO, Evan is more musical since his stint on DWTS.

    That's too bad about Evan, and I hope he recovers completely- but I am very happy for Armin. He deserves it and will be great to see.

    A good question is if we will see any of Ando, Plushenko, Lysacek, or Weir at a Worlds again. I would say no.

    Ando- will skate one last event at some fluff event like Japan Open.

    Plushenko- will continue competing at Europeans, Russian Nationals, Cup of Russia, and maybe the 2014 Olympics. Not at a Worlds.

    Lysacek- wont compete again.

    Weir- will compete reglarly, but wont be successful in making the 2013 Worlds, 2014 Olympics, or 2014 Worlds team.

    Groin injuries are typically very stubborn and very easy to reinjure. This really up-ends Evan's proposed season but being very cautious is the only way to get to complete healing with this particular problem.
