    OK. per Hersh's article, it really isn't certain that he is committed. He has a wait-and-see attitude and will make a final decision later this Summer. But, the article mentions that he is back and training w/ FC

    Wish Evan good luck on his summer training. Based on his spectacular performances in SOI, I think he'll have a successful comeback.

    if it doesn't pan out, perhaps he's like to try pairs? I bet he could lift Caitlyn no problemo
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    This makes me really happy....For Mirai I want her to be World Champion this year, I hope training with Evan amps her up like during the Olympic season.

    I feel like Michael Scott from The Office when he realized Toby came back from Costa Rica

    I'm happy for Evan, hope he can make a successful comeback, but I'm even happier for Mirai - it can't be anything but a positive influence for Nagasu to have Lysacek training there again.

    Publicity stunt.

    I'd happily bet money on him not actually competing again.

    I mean look at the protocols from the Men's competition at 2011 Worlds. The bar has been raised a lot and Evan never had a consistent quad.

    From Philip Hersh's article: "While Lysacek told Carroll he wanted to wait until the fall to decide whether he actually would compete at Skate America, the coach thinks it is likely." "Knowing Evan, of course he will," Carroll said. "Once he makes up his mind to do something, he does it."

    I know I wrote that Olympic champions competing is something I like but he really adds nothing contributes nothing and is all about celebrating jump regression in mens skating

    Exactly. Chan would have to fall 5 times to lose to a clean Evan at this point. Evan had his window to possibly be on top in 2009-2010 and took it in flying colors and got out at the perfect time. I dont see him giving up his comfort now as the Superstar on Stars on Ice to train to return on an aging beat up body and maybe fight for a bronze medal.

    Until he's in the K&C at Skate America, I won't believe it.

    Another article by Mr. Hersh:

    Lysacek, who turned 26 on June 4, has not competed since the Vancouver Olympics. But throughout last winter, when he was on tour with Stars on Ice, the skater from Naperville frequently would call Carroll to say how much he missed skating and intensive training for competition. The coach sensed Lysacek was thinking about a comeback.
    A short time ago, Lysacek told Carroll: "Frank, I'm not afraid of losing. I'm not through yet.
    When a football player wins the Super Bowl, he doesn't stop playing. I feel like that.

    "It doesn't matter if I win again. I miss it and I love it."

    What can I say, it seems that he really wants to compete so I wish him good luck.

    I´m very happy if Evan is indeed coming back, WOW!!! And I think he has a very realistic attitude, he just very much has missed competing:

    I wonder who is the other athlete mentioned in the article who wanted to train with Frank C.?
