Olympic Spectator Michelle Kwan "Very Happy" Off the Ice

Michelle Kwan

The Olympics still make Michelle Kwan nervous — for a different reason now.

"I always get nervous watching friends and people that I know skate," Kwan tells TVGuide.com. "I want them to do well, but it's fun and exciting to be in Vancouver as a spectator now. When I was competing, I saw pretty much the village, the rink and the practice rink. Or physical therapy. That was my extent of the Olympics. Now I get to see ...

Olympic Moment: Plushenko Reluctantly Surrenders Gold to Lysacek

Evan Lysacek

Evan Lysacek's journey to men's figure skating gold included more than a little jesting — and even outright criticism — from defending Olympic champ Evgeni Plushenko.

Plushenko jokingly stepped to the top spot on the medal platform before allowing Lysacek — the first American to win gold in men's figure skating since Brian Boitano in 1988 — to claim his rightful place.

"I was positive I had won," Plushenko told ESPN. "But... read more

Will Gretchen Bleiler Spin a 1080 into Olympic Snowboarding Gold?

Gretchen Bleiler

Gretchen Bleiler is peaking at the right time. The 28-year-old snowboarder "went to a whole other level" at the Winter X Games last month to claim her record fourth superpipe title. "It feels amazing to win that. I finally stepped up to my potential," she tells TVGuide.com. "I know I'm capable of doing more at the Olympics." The Aspen, Colo., native, who nabbed silver in Torino, is back to win gold and is contemplating a never-before-landed trick in the women's competition to help her do it: the 1080 (three revolutions in the air).

To Quad or Not to Quad? Evan Lysacek Aims to Bring Olympic Figure Skating Gold Back to U.S.

Evan Lysacek

The last time an American man won Olympic figure skating gold, Evan Lysacek was a toddler. That was in 1988 when Brian Boitano edged Canadian Brian Orser in the Battle of the Brians on Orser's home turf in Calgary. Twenty-two years later, the Winter Olympics are back in Canada, and Lysacek, the defending world champion, is seen as the one who can end the U.S. drought. "Scott Hamilton is a good friend of mine, and he keeps telling me that most U.S. world champions have won the Olympics," Lysacek, 24, tells TVGuide.com. "But I'm just going to do my best. I'm the type of competitor that just goes about my business and handles things when I get there." Lysacek, who finished second at nationals behind Jeremy Abbott and ahead of Johnny Weir, has his work cut out for him with a loaded international field that includes defending champion Evgeni Plushenko. See what he has to say about his competition, whether he will throw a high-scoring quadruple jump and why the men's team is "going to take on the world."

Catch the men's short program Tuesday at 8/7c and the long program Thursday at 8/7c on NBC.

Watchlist

Nip/Tuck
"I started watching Nip/Tuck because I have a broken nose and was scared about the rhinoplasty procedure. I figured at some point on the show they would show a nose job and I could be less afraid of it. That opened a whole new can of worms. I love watching this show six or seven episodes at a time, which says a lot because I never sit still. I'm only on Season 4 and it keeps getting better. "
