Lysacek lives in Los Angeles, California and trains in El Segundo, California at the Toyota Sports Center.


Evan Lysacek began skating at the age of eight. His grandmother had always wanted to be in the Ice Capades, so she bought him skates for Christmas. He originally wanted to play hockey so his mother enrolled him and his sister Laura in figure skating lessons so he would learn how to skate. Lysacek became hooked and was soon competing as a figure skater.

Early career

In 1996, Lysacek won the U.S. national title at the Juvenile level. In 1997, he moved up to Intermediate and won the pewter medal (fourth place) at the Junior Olympics, after winning both his regional and his sectional qualifying competitions.

After failing to qualify for Nationals on the novice level in 1998,cite web | title =Evan Lysacek | work =figureskatingonline.com | publisher =Figure Skaters Online | url =http://www.figureskatersonline.com/evanlysacek/ | accessdate =2007-03-12 ] Lysacek won the U.S. Novice title in 1999cite web | title =1999 State Farm U.S. Figure Skating Championships | work =US Figure Skating.org | publisher =U.S. Figure Skating | url =http://www.usfigureskating.org/event_details.asp?id=25172 | accessdate =2007-03-11 ] at the age of thirteen and then immediately followed it with the U.S. Junior title in 2000cite web | title =2000 State Farm U.S. Figure Skating Championships | work =US Figure Skating.org | publisher =U.S. Figure Skating | url =http://www.usfigureskating.org/event_details.asp?id=24910 | accessdate =2007-03-11 ] at the age of fourteen, placing fifth in the short program and first in the free skate, placing first overall.

Lysacek had a strong showing in the 2000–2001 season. He showed promise on the Junior Grand Prix circuit, winning two silver medals and qualifying for the Junior Grand Prix Final. He placed 12th in his senior debut at Nationals, at the age of fifteen. Lysacek was named second alternate to the US team to the 2001 World Junior Figure Skating Championships and was placed on the team after Ryan Bradley [cite news |first= |last= |authorlink= |coauthors= |title= PLUS: FIGURE SKATING; U.S. Men Finish First and Second |url=http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9A00E4D9173BF931A35750C0A9679C8B63 |work= |publisher=New York Times |date=2001-03-02 |accessdate=2007-03-16 ] withdrew due to injury. Lysacek performed two clean programs and came in second behind fellow American Johnny Weir. This was the first time since 1987 that the United States had won gold and silver on the World Junior podium.

Over the next season, Lysacek dealt with several injuries, including broken ribs, which resulted in lost training time. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, the United States Figure Skating Association cancelled the Junior Grand Prix event to be held in Arizona [cite web | title =ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating 2nd event in Phoenix (USA) Cancelled | work =International Skating Union.org | publisher =International Skating Union | url =http://ww2.isu.org/news/sept19.html | accessdate =2007-03-12 ] and did not allow their junior skaters to compete on the Junior Grand Prix circuit.

After that, Lysacek changed his diet and his training habits. In the 2002-2003 season, he once again won medals on the Junior Grand Prix circuit, qualified again for the Junior Grand Prix Final, placed in the top ten at the U.S. Championships and competed at the 2003 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, his first senior international competition, and was placed on the 2003 Junior Worlds team. Due to the United States team's performance at the 2002 Junior Worlds, they only had two men's spots. After the withdrawal of Parker Pennington, the higher ranked man on the two man team, Lysacek was the only United States men's skater at the competition. Lysacek landed his first clean triple axel jump of his career in the qualifying round of that competition and his second clean one in the free skate. His silver medal winning performance earned the United States three spots to the 2004 Junior Worlds.

After graduating from high school in 2003, Lysacek made a coaching change and began to work with Ken Congemi and Frank Carroll in El Segundo, California. With Congemi and Carroll, Lysacek won both of his Junior Grand Prix assignments as well as the Junior Grand Prix Final.

Lysacek then went on to the 2004 World Junior Figure Skating Championships, where he won a third silver medal.

enior success

In the 2004–2005 season, having aged out of juniors at age 19, Lysacek made his senior international debut.

In the 2005–2006 season, Lysacek had a rough start. He placed second at the 2005 Skate America, but it was clear that his "Grease" free skate was not working. Lysacek and coach Frank Carroll made the decision to find a new long program. [cite web | last =Shontz | first =Lori | title =An oldie but goodie.

Lysacek was the only American man to qualify for the Grand Prix Final that season. However, he was forced to withdraw from the final because of bursitis and tendinitis in his right hip.

At the Olympics, following a disappointing 10th place finish in the short program, Lysacek became sick with the stomach flu. Unable to practice, he stayed in bed at the Olympic village, receiving fluids from IVs. After considering withdrawing, he decided to skate the next day and went on to skate a career best free skate.

He finished fourth overall, seven points below the bronze. He commentated on his long program on "Olympic Ice" the next day with Scott Hamilton and Mary Carillo.

Lysacek ended his season by finishing third at the 2006 World Figure Skating Championships in Calgary, Alberta. Once again troubled by illness, he captured the bronze medal despite being on three different antibiotics to fight a bacterial infection, which at one point, caused him to cough up blood.cite web | last =Fawcett | first =Laura | title =Men's Qualifying Opens 2006 World Championships | work =US Figure Skating.org | publisher =U.S. Figure Skating | date =March 20, 2006 | url =http://www.usfigureskating.org/Story.asp?id=33467 | accessdate =2007-03-12 ] Lysacek was credited with landing his first quadruple jump in competition, a quadruple toe loop. He pulled himself up from seventh place in the short on the strength of his long program. After Worlds, Lysacek toured with Champions on Ice as a full member of the cast.

In the 2006–2007 season, Lysacek placed second at the 2006 Skate America. Two weeks later, Lysacek won the gold medal at the 2006 Cup of China by a 20-point margin.

Lysacek resumed training a few weeks later.

Coaching changes

Evan Lysacek was originally coached by Candice Brown in Naperville.cite web | title =Evan Lysacek | work =ISUFS.org | publisher =International Skating Union | date =October 3, 2003 | url =http://web.archive.org/web/20031013191944/http://www.isufs.org/bios/isufs00004495.htm | accessdate =2007-03-12 ] After that, he worked with Deborah Stoery in Naperville, Illinois and Addison, Illinois for three years. For the next two years, he had an arrangement where he would train under both Addison-based Maria Jezak-Athey and Moscow-based Viktor Kudriavtsev. Kudriavtsev would come to Chicago for part of the year to coach, and Lysacek spent his summers at Kudriavtsev's summer training camps in Moscow, Russia and Flims, Switzerland. When that arrangement proved untenable, Kudriavtsev recommended Lysacek to Carroll, who agreed to coach Lysacek on the condition that Lysacek would work more with Congemi than with himself, due to Carroll's commitments to Timothy Goebel. Lysacek moved to El Segundo, California to work with Frank Carroll and Ken Congemi in June 2003. Lysacek worked with both Congemi and Carroll through the 2006/2007 season, after which he began working solely with Carroll.

Lysacek has worked with many choreographers over the years, including Oleg Epstein and Kurt Browning. Both his programs for the 2007-2008 season were choreographed by Lori Nichol. He worked with Tatiana Tarasova on his programs for the 2008-2009 season.
