Olympic champion Evan Lysacek's comeback is again being delayed by injury.
Lysacek 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.
