Last March, the 24-year-old brought the world title back to the U.S. for the first time in 13 years. Can he achieve a similar feat with an Olympic gold medal, which hasn't had an American champ since Brian Boitano in 1988? Lysacek finished just shy of the podium in Turin but is now a frontrunner entering Vancouver, with wins at Skate America and the Grand Prix Final this season. The two-time national champion stumbled during an attempted quadruple toe loop at last month's U.S. championship, but assured reporters it was just a test run: "What happened here is absolutely not a reflection of what I'm going to be like at the Olympics," he said. "I'm saving my Olympic skate for that night."
