Biography:

Evan Lysacek is a distinguished American figure skater and won the 2010 Men’s singles Olympic gold medalist, the first American to win gold in the event in 24 years. A fierce competitor, he was awarded for his incredible performance that year when the United States Olympic Committee named him the 2010 Sportsman of the Year. Off the ice he has been endorsed by several reputable brands including Coca-Cola, Ralph Lauren, and worked as a spokesperson for Total Gym. A hip injury kept him out of competing in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi but he took over as an analyst for NBC’s Today Show coverage from the games. He also performed many duties for his sponsor’s campaigns at the Games including helping with social media for Smuckers and providing support for Proctor & Gamble’s popular “Thank you Mom” campaign.

Olympic Sports Speaker Evan Lysacek’s career as a figure skater has been highlighted by several big wins and performances on the ice. His first international win on the senior circuit came at the 2005 Four Continents Championship and won the bronze medal at his first World Championships.  He would continue to get better and was the U.S. National Champion in 2007 and 2008. Finally in 2009 he was able to capture his first World Championship and was a fan-favorite heading into the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada. Evan’s costumes were designed by some of the world’s most popular fashion designers such as Vera Wang, Alexander McQueen, and Christian Dior.

After Evan’s gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics he participated in season 10 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and came up just short in second place in the final episode with partner Anna Trebunskaya. He’s always been involved with several charities throughout his skating career including initiatives with Figure Skating in Harlem, the Ronald McDonald House and the Make-A-wish Foundation.
