Johnny Weir

Whether witty or wise, controversial or charming, shocking or silly, sweet or sassy, provocative or profound, inspiring or infuriating--or any combination of those--Johnny Weir, the three-time U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian, and World medalist figure skater, almost always says something worth quoting whenever he gives an interview, holds a press conference, blogs or tweets, or is caught on video, whether for his TV series, Be Good Johnny Weir, or at a non-profit fundraiser.

When I'm thirty years old I don't want to look back at Priscilla, someone I see more than my own mother, and remember her as a coach. I will remember her as my friend and someone who was always there for me no matter what, and in my opinion, that's what a good coach should be., Johnny Weir Online, "questions and answers," November 2006

Happy 30th Birthday, Johnny!
