    Click on the ISU communication 1629 and scroll down unil you reach this: 4. DISTRIBUTION OF POINTS (10% steps). The amount of points depends on placement: In an IC = international senior competition the winner gets 250 points as far as I understand the matter.

    .....
    Does this mean he will compete next season? Sorry if this has been addressed already

    Lysacek is listed in USFS' 2012-13 International Selection Pool (as is Weir).

    Even though Lysacek is no longer ranked in the ISU World Standings list (his 2009-10 ranking points have been removed in the latest update today -- see the thread in GSD), that shouldn't affect whether or not he can compete internationally this fall.

    He was also seen doing 3axel half loop 3flips. If doing the flip at the end of the sequence helps him take off on the back inside edge, then great.

    OMG... I think it will be very very interesting if Evan will return to compete in Sochi together with Plushy. We can then call Sochi ... battle of the Oly gold medallists with World medallists in the outer ring! Gosh.. no one will want to miss the men's competition ever.

    Oh yeah, it sure will be a battle!!! And of course the ones with best Olympic nerves will fare well. Thanks for the jump info, Iris81....

    Maybe after all it was good that he was not able to compete in past season. Better chances to stay healthy until the Olympics are over, I mean.

    I came across this article from last month about Lysacek's trip to Sweden and Belarus: http://boxscorenews.com/us-state-dep...-p35136-68.htm

    ETA: Evan is currently listed to perform in 2 of Sun Valley's summer ice shows on July 21 and August 25, 2012 - see the schedule linked in SV show thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83527

    "It's a work in progress," he said. "I love the music so much. It's beautiful. And not too many people have skated to it. It's very repetitive, very driving, which I like."

    The program showed off Lysacek's smooth speed and power to good effect, with some big, clean triple jumps: Lutz, flip and loop. Lysacek also premiered a new Vera Wang costume in gray and black with a white collar.

    "It's something we're trying -- it's a possibility," he said. "Vera sends me things. For 'The Climb,' my costume is navy and black; it's not that exciting. My clothes are always subtle. I like navy, black, gray."
    Not a fan of the 'Samson and Delilah' costume, it's so weird, looks better in motion, but still weird; the new costume for 'the Climb' looks really nice though, he should wear that in competition.
    I realized that these videos from the Skating Club of Boston's Ice Chips show in late March/early April have not been posted in this thread:

    Trankov tweeted that Evan was apparently doing 4-3
    (I guess at the practice ot All That Skate).

    OMG в Сочи у мужчин рубка будет! Лайс 4т + 3f через ойлер фигачит!
    ETA: Oh sorry, I see it has already been mentioned.

    Well, the challenge is definitely on! Evan has certainly signalled that he's in it for real. This looks to be a very amped up competition for the gold in Sochi. This is going to be interesting...

    ^^ I love the idea of Oly Golds showdown .. now that Evan has quads and Plushy has sequences and transitions (okay.. read that on Plushy's thread that he's doing pretty well on that). They are on equal plane so there HOPEFULLY whoever wins there won't be any disappointments and winching.

    And then Chan swoops in and beats them all because he has everything including 2 quads

    I have nothing against Chan winning, but the question is his consistency. He does not often skate faultless freeskates, does he? And my impression from Russian male skaters doing a CoP choreography is this: They may have lots of arm gestures but what they do with the feet is not that impressive and there is a looooong preparation for every jump. That is the Russian idea of transitions, so far. It is a lot easier for Evan to bring back the quad (which he was able to jump while uninjured) than for Plushenko to have real transitions before his jumps.

    Marco, Chan is not in the same league as Evan and Plushy. Evan & Plushy are Oly gold medallists. Chan is not even an Oly medallist. The battle is really between E & P.

    You are joking, right?

    Chan was still very young at the last Olympics, he hadn't reached his full potential yet (even SS wise), and he wasn't doing quads (which he does now). And, even then, he could have won a medal, if he had skated clean. So, you really must be joking.

    Absolutely not in the same league. Chan is clearly a much better skater.

    Not when he is doing his Zamboni imitation.
