Evan Lysacek, the first U.S. man to win figure skating gold in 22 years is dating fellow Olympic gold medalist gymnast Nastia Liukin. The pair met back in 2008 and have been exclusively dating since last simmer. "We became good friends and have become really close since then," Lysacek told the press. Liukin, 20, has been in Vancouver to root for Lysacek. "To see his dreams come true was amazing. Even though we're not in the same sport, we got to connect at the same level because there's nothing like the Olympics. It was nice to be on other side of things and be the support system, but I was nervous," she said. Lysacek added, "She been so helpful to me. She has been through it herself. If I'm having a bad day, she tells me to have faith and to keep going. Sometimes your support system has more faith in you than yourself. And when she tells me things are going to be fine, I really believe it."

U.S. Olympic bronze medalist Scotty Lago just left Vancouver after racy pictures of the snowboarder were leaked. Lego apologized to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association after the photo was published. The photos were taken on a public street in Vancouver and don't seem too bad but they were bad enough for Lego to pack up and leave town.
