Evan Lysacek apparently plans on being tough when it comes to dancing with two broken toes.
The Dancing with the Stars tenth-season celebrity participant is suffering from two broken toes, according to a Friday post to his Twitter account, however the gold-medal Olympic figure skater still plans on performing with partner Anna Trebunskaya during Monday night's live broadcast.
"Feeling better with some pain killers and taping. I trained all day yesterday and today. Felt better in my skate actually," wrote Lysacek on Twitter.
"I will not let a couple broken toes effect any of my planned appearances for Smuckers Stars on Ice or Dancing with the Stars!!!!"
Lysacek's representative told E! News that the figure skater suffered the broken toes while performing the jive during last week's Monday night broadcast.
"But he's still rehearsing the quickstep and performing in Stars on Ice every night. God love him," the representative told E! News.
Lysacek and Trebunskaya have finished in second place behind Pussycat Dolls member Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough on the judges' leaderboards during Dancing with the Stars' first two tenth-season performances.
