Evan Lysacek has withdrawn from next week's World Figure Skating Championships. This is especially disappointing for Evan and the USFSA after his solid season. The United States stood an outside chance at landing two men on the podium for the first time since 1996.
The US men should still qualify three men for next year, as Carriere has delivered strong finishes at every international competition he's entered this season (3rd at Skate America, 4th at Cup of China, 4th at Four Continents).
Jeremy Abbott will replace Lysacek.
More details to come.
