Evan Lysacek’s Twitter Q&A, recapped just for you

Evan Lysacek

Miller, Michael (501534472)

Evan Lysacek will enter the 2014 Sochi Games as the reigning men’s figure skating champ and one of the biggest names on Team USA.

That’s what happens when you’re the first U.S. man to take figure skating gold since Brian Boitano in 1988. (Winning the 2009 World Championships didn’t hurt either.)

So how will Lysacek, 27, approach next year’s Olympics? What’s he think of Russian food? And what would he be doing if he weren’t a figure skater? He answered all that and more in a Twitter chat Wednesday when he took over the NBCOlympics handle. Here’s a recap.

I’m taking over the @nbcolympics handle for a live chat right now. Send your questions to @nbcolympics. #Olympics2014
