When Johnny Weir announced he was returning to the competitive ranks, the cheers from his global fan base reverberated throughout the skating world.
For the past two years the three-time U.S. champion has led a life that most people only dream about.
From performing in skating galas all over the world, appearing in television shows including one all about him, writing a book, attending parties with some of the world’s most notable celebrities and walking numerous red carpets, he has done it all.
“Figure skaters don’t usually become famous, but the world kind of latched on to me as their favorite skater,” Weir said.
