Lysacek training again with Carroll
Figure skating gold medalist makes deadline to request spots in 2 of 6 events on fall's Grand Prix circuit


Not long after Evan Lysacek won the 2010 Olympic men's figure skating gold medal, he and his coach, Frank Carroll, agreed on the idea Lysacek was not going to compete anymore.

"It made sense," Carroll said Monday. "He was world champion and Olympic champion. There was not much more for him to go after."

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.

Another skater recently had asked Carroll about training with him. The coach would not take that skater if Lysacek wanted to try to compete again, so Carroll told Lysacek he needed to make a decision by mid-June.

Last week, Lysacek was back training with Carroll in Lake Arrowhead, Calif.

He also made the June 21 deadline to request spots in two of the six events on this fall's Grand Prix circuit. Monday, the International Skating Union announced it had assigned Lysacek to the opening event, Skate America on Oct. 21-23 in Ontario, Calif., and the penultimate event, Trophy Bompard on Nov. 18-20 in Paris.

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."

The ultimate goal would be the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Lysacek's publicist, Lynn Plage, said Monday the two-time U.S. champion does not want to make a formal announcement of his intentions until later this summer.

Discussing the idea of skating at a third Olympics in a Tribune interview in February, Lysacek said, "I would have to be OK with not winning again. My reason for going back would be the fulfillment in the process of getting there."

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."

Carroll said Lysacek has yet to choose music and needs a lot of work on the triple jumps he was not doing in shows.

After one day of training last week, Lysacek was so stiff and sore he needed to take the next day off. Carroll expects the skater back at the rink Tuesday.

Лайсачек возвращается на любительский лед и выступит на двух этапах Гран-при

Олимпийский чемпион в мужском катании Эван Лайсачек после годичного отсутствия принял решение вернуться на любительский лед, сообщает AP.

В следующем сезоне Лайсачек примет участие в двух этапах Гран-при – Skate America в в Онтарио и в завершающем этапе Trophee Bompard в Париже.

Напомним, что прошлый сезон Лайсачек пропустил из-за насыщенной программы коммерческих выступлений, в том числе в известном в США шоу «Звезды на льду».

В апреле тренер Лайсачека Фрэнк Кэролл назвал возможное возвращение Лайсачека в любители маловероятным.

doubleflutz:
Maybe it was a typo, but Patrick (Chan) has been saying he's going to try to add 4S and either 4LZ or 4F this season for quite some time now, so I'd assume it's accurate. The flip is easily his best jump, I don't have any trouble believing he could pull off a quad in practice at the very least, and as for the 1/2LO-3F part, he was doing a 3F out of absolutely nothing in his LP all last season. 4F-1/2LO-3F actually makes a lot of sense for him to try as a combination, based on what his jump layout was this past season, and how the Zayak rule works. Gachinski's been doing 4F in practice, and Adam Rippon's doing 4LZ. If last season was the rebirth of the quad, this season looks like it will be the rise of the multi-quad/quads-harder-than-4S.

SkateFiguring:
I believe Chan is practising a 4F but he has said he will put it in a program only if he can maintain the PCS with it. He is not about to sacrifice the skating for a new quad. I however will not be surprised if he debuts a 4F this coming season. It's likely going to be a race between him and Takahashi for the record book. A few other skaters are doing various quads in practice but doing them successfully in competitions is another story all together.

Yes, that half loop permitted in a combo surely opens up a whole lot of different jump combos to the skaters. I'm surprised Chan has been the only one taking advantage of this new rule, but I'm pretty sure some others will be catching on. If Chan progresses the way he did last season, we may be treated to multi-quads and possibly multi-quad-combos in his program(s) by the end of the coming season.

Here is a frame by frame of Chan's 4T at Worlds 2011: http://a.yfrog.com/img611/6149/3vojj.jpg
As can be seen from the background, his jump direction is to the left whereas the frames are from left to right because most people's eyes are trained to "read" in the direction of sentences in most languages.

Blades of Passion:
Doing a half-loop into a 3Flip is way harder than half-loop into 3Sal, to about the same degree as a 3Loop at the end of a combo is way harder than a 3Toe at the end of a combo. The Salchow generates spring from the blade turning on the ice (which you can get after landing the half loop), whereas with the Flip you need more speed going directly into it and you also don't want the foot to turn as much on the ice; that's not something you get from the landing of a half loop.

Since the half-loop drains your speed and is forcing the foot to move on the ice in a different manner than you'd normally do a Flip, you need to have great ability to somewhat halt that landing edge, then spring into the air from near standstill, then have a very tight rotation to get around far enough after going in without much momentum (plus the ability to land correctly after throwing yourself into the jump like that). No surprise that Plushenko is the only person who attempted such a combination in competition. He had that cat-like ability to quickly spring into the air, rotate very quickly, and still land even if he's tilted.

Joesitz:
That depends on the individual. Some skaters have troubles with edge jumps. The purpose of changing a salchow into a flip is by using a toe-off. It keeps the salchow from prerotating. I'm not so sure judges actually see a strong back inside edge for both the salchow and the flip. I'm sure many skaters take off on the flat of the blade for the flip. If you remember the first time you put on skates, the flat or no edge was the safest way to go. Do you think the Tech Panel sees flat skating elements?

mskater93:
BoP means that the 1/2 loop landing tends to come around which makes a Salchow MUCH easier than a flip to do out of the landing. Bringing the back inside edge deep before a flip is usually a recipe for disaster (most entries are almost flat) because the skater will be not straight in the air. For a Salchow, that is what creates the rotation.
