Olympian Johnny Weir Retires, Hired To Be Figure Skating Commentator At Sochi

NBC reports:
Two-time Olympic figure skater and three-time U.S. champion Johnny Weir is hanging up the skates and picking up the mic. Weir is retiring from competition and joining NBC Olympics as a figure skating analyst for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, he announced on TODAY Wednesday. The skating star, who is openly gay and married to a Russian man, also gave his take on Russia's controversial Russian anti-gay laws. Weir has been opposed to calls for a boycott of the Sochi Olympics because he feels it would negate the efforts of athletes who have worked hard to reach the Games.
Here's this morning's Today Show appearance.
