Fallen Angel: Johnny Weir Skates the Routine of His Life

Fallen Angel: Johnny Weir Skates the Routine of His Life

For the 2010 Olympics Freestyle Skating, Johnny Weir named his routine Fallen Angel, a reflection of his feelings about the aftermath of his performance at the 2006 Winter Games in Torino.  But on this night, he skated beautifully.  It was dramatic, acrobatic, genuine and very emotional.

Fallen Angel: Johnny Weir Skates the Routine of His Life

“Weir, like no skater I’ve seen before, has a body that reflects all of the awkward yearning of his soul.  Evan Lysacek may have the gold and Evgeni Plushenko the silver, but Weir is in a category of his own: Best Human Attempting To Be a Figure Skater.”

-Meghan O’Rourke, Slate Magazine
