(AP) Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek has a torn labrum, and will miss next month's Skate America.

Lysacek was initially diagnosed with an abdominal tear after a fall in August. But he says he continued to feel pain, and further tests revealed the tear. He says that meant more time off the ice, which will prevent him from competing at Skate America, which is Oct. 18-20 in Detroit.

Lysacek still needs to post a minimum technical score at an international event in order to qualify for the Sochi Olympics, and he says he's already working with U.S. Figure Skating to find such an event. But he says his main goal is still the U.S. Championships in early January, where the Sochi team will be selected.
