Springs Skaters Nearly Place at U.S. Championships

By  | 

Evan Lysacek won his second straight title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships even though the results will show him with the same score as Johnny Weir. Both finished with 244.77 points but Lysacek won the free skate for the tiebreaker.

These two have combined to win the last five U.S. titles.

Fans didn't quite know how to react. The scoreboard showed the two as even and they booed when Weir was announced as the runner-up.

Stephen Carriere, last year's world junior champion, was third.

Colorado Springs Skaters Jeremy Abbott and Ryan Bradley finished fourth and fifth respectively, just out of medal contention.
