Have you been enjoying the Olympics this week? I sure have!
I haven’t exactly made a secret of the fact that Evan Lysacek is one of my favorite figure skaters (if you don’t remember my previous post about him, check it out here), and last night he certainly didn’t disappoint. If you missed the Men’s Short Program, you missed some great skating. There was some okay skating. Then some good skating. A few great perfomances … and then the cream of the crop!
At the end of the night, reigning World Champion Evan Lysacek is in 2nd place going into the Free Skate tomorrow night. In honor of his fantabulous skating that literally had Amy and I jumping out of our seats (almost like we were watching a football game), I thought I’d offer you a little video of his Free Skate when he won Worlds last year in L.A.
And in case you don’t follow men’s figure skating closely (but why wouldn’t you?), the last US man to win Worlds and then go on to win an Olympic gold was Scott Hamilton in 1984. It’s about time, huh?
Enjoy Evan’s performance … and the Olympics!
