Olympic champion figure skater Evan Lysacek wins Sullivan Award as top US amateur athlete
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Olympic champion Evan Lysacek won the 2010 Sullivan Award, becoming the fourth figure skater to be honored as the top amateur athlete in the United States.
Lysacek also won the USOC Sportsman of the Year award earlier this year after winning gold at the Vancouver games last year.
He is the first Olympian since gymnast Shawn Johnson in 2009 to win the Sullivan Award, presented by the Amateur Athletic Union, and the first skater since Olympian Sarah Hughes in 2002.
