But at least 1 Canadian skater/team managed to land on the podium at all grand prix events. while the US were shut out at Skate Canada and Cup of China.

By my count, this is what the team trophy would look like based on the results of the 2013 worlds. I picked The top 9 countries plus Ukraine. I gave Japan, Ukraine and Spain a 3 point on the pairs sho

Olympic champion Evan Lysacek is returning to competitive figure skating.

Lysacek announced Friday that he is entered at Skate America, his first competition since winning the gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. He says he wants to defend his title at the 2014 Sochi Games - something no man has done since Dick Button in 1952.

Lysacek has always left the door open for a comeback, and he was assigned to two Grand Prix competitions last year. But negotiations with U.S. Figure Skating hit a snag, and he wound up not competing.

Lysacek's return is sure to be a boost for the Americans, who are down to just two spots at the world championships after having three from 2005 to 2011. No American has finished higher than fifth the past three years.

With reference to Osmond, we need to see her perform in another competition which sadly she might not get this season. Her next international competition may not be until February in Osaka for the Four Continents Championships.

Plushenko Confirms Retirement After Sochi 2014

ST. PETERSBURG, November 6 (R-Sport) - Russian figure skating star Evgeni Plushenko said Tuesday he is hanging up the blades after Sochi 2014.

Plushenko made the expected announcement ahead of a jubilee show dedicated to his 30th birthday in St. Petersburg.

"If everything goes well, then I'll finish my amateur career after Sochi," the 2006 Olympic champion said. "After next season I'll end my career and retire."

Plushenko is returning to competition after a knee operation in the wake of the European championships in January, where he won the gold medal.

He came fourth in the team-based Japan Open last month, won by local star Daisuke Takahashi, and next skates in the Russian championships in Sochi in December.
