The skating, and fashion, wunderkind is planning to train and make his mark at the Sochi games!
He may have been robbed of a medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, but fear not Johnny Weir fans, it looks like the skating sensation will be back! The Russophile spoke with HollywoodLife exclusively at the dot429 and David Yurman fashion preview in NYC Nov. 3 and when asked if he hoped to close out his career in Sochi for the 2014 games told us, “I would love to, and am hoping to, compete in Sochi!”
When then (foolishly) asked if placing was important to him, the graceful glider simply responded, “You don’t get to the Olympics by not being great.”
As for life after skating, Johnny is now mentoring a young skater Ksenia Makarova — and even designing her clothes!
Let’s just hope that if Johnny does show up in Sochi the judges actually watch, and fairly mark, the briliant skater!
