WASHINGTON, February 11, /ITAR-TASS/. U.S. figure skater Evan Lysacek is expected to visit St Petersburg from February 15 through to February 18 as an ambassador of sport, Marie Harf, a deputy spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State told reporters Monday.

She claimed Lysacek’s trip to Russia’s second largest city was timed for the 140th anniversary since an American acquainted the Russians with figure skating - a historical fact that is not confirmed by Russian sources.

Evan Lysacek, 28, the 2010 Olympic champion, the gold medalist of the 2009 world championships, and the winner of bronze medals at the world championships of 2005 and 2006, is not entered in the figure skating tournament at the XXII Winter Olympic Games in Sochi because of a trauma but he continues representing the U.S. in Russia, Harf said.
