Slideshow — Johnny Weir Retires From Skating, Leaves Glitter in His Wake
Yahoo: Perhaps no figure skater in history has drawn more unlikely fans to become spectators of the sport than Johnny Weir-Voronov. But on Wednesday, the athlete-turned-author-reality-star-fashion-icon with a penchant for purses and fur announced his retirement from skating. “While I am not old, part of being a champion is knowing when your time is up,” he noted. He’ll become an Olympic correspondent for NBC at the Sochi Games (which is a whole other story…), and he’s become a fixture at red-carpet events, so this is far from the last we’ll see of him. But let’s toast Weir anyway, for brightening up our lives both on and off of the ice.
