COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Olympic champion Evan Lysacek's comeback is again being delayed by injury.
Lysacek, a Naperville native, was to compete later this week at the International Skating Classic, his first event since winning gold at the Vancouver Games. But he withdrew Monday, citing a slight abdominal tear. A similar injury forced Lysacek out of Skate America last year, and he eventually had sports hernia surgery.
A release from U.S. Figure Skating says Lysacek expects to make a full recovery from the latest injury.
Lysacek is still entered in Skate America, which is Oct. 18-20 in Detroit. The U.S. championships, where the Sochi Olympic team will be selected, are Jan. 9-12 in Boston.
