Skating Champ Johnny Weir Ties Knot in New York

NEW YORK – Figure skating star Johnny Weir tied the knot on New Year’s Eve.

The three-time U.S. champion married Atlanta lawyer Victor Voronov in New York. Weir said in a Twitter post Saturday the two will have a wedding this summer, but “all the official stuff is done now!” He thanked fans in another post late Monday, saying the well wishes mean a lot.

The two-time Olympian came out last January in his autobiography, “Welcome to My World.” He had previously avoided questions about his sexuality, saying he wanted people to see him “for who I am, not what I am.”

Weir has not competed since the Vancouver Olympics, where he finished sixth. He has not ruled out a comeback for the 2014 Sochi Games.

Kunonga insists he broke away from the mainstream Anglicans after the church in Britain recognized gay marriage and the rights of same sex partners. Mugabe is a bitter critic of homosexuality.
