OMAHA, Neb. -- Olympic champion Evan Lysacek's comeback is delayed again.

The Naperville native has withdrawn from the upcoming U.S. Figure Skating Championships because of a slow recovery from surgery on a sports hernia. The national federation made the announcement Friday; the event begins Jan. 25.

The 27-year-old Lysacek had the surgery in November. He has been training with coaches Frank Carroll and Karen Kwan-Oppegard, but is not ready to resume competition.

He has not competed since the Vancouver Games in 2010.

Lysacek still hopes to be ready for the 2013-14 season and to skate at the Sochi Olympics.
