Eight pounds in one day?! That is insane. Man, I love Johnny's candor. There's always this sense of sarcastic wit to his outlook.
I just hope his physical condition can keep up with his positive frame-of-mind; wherein
lies Johnny's weakness- stamina.

Where in the article did you read that?

"I'm stronger, more powerful, and healthier this season," he said. "There have been times in my career when I haven't felt my own essence. I didn't feel my own strength. Now I do."

:cheer2: Go Johnny!

Those moments of uncertainty were brief but costly. Coming off a world bronze medal in 2008, Weir opened the 2008-09 season with a silver medal at Skate America, losing gold by a hair to then-unheralded Takahiko Kozuka of Japan. He went on to take silver at Japan's NHK Trophy despite competing with a heavy cold. A few weeks later, he won bronze at the Grand Prix Final in Goyang, South Korea.

That's when his luck ran out. Over Christmas, Weir traveled to South Korea a second time, to perform in friend Yu-Na Kim's "Angels on Ice" show benefiting children's charities. While there, he caught a bug, losing eight pounds in a single day and spending Christmas Day in a hospital.

He doesn't say it's in one day. He says he was 8 lbs underweight..... I would bet that some of that was virus and some of that was....... the Starbucks diet?

True, it says "in a single day". ;)

Johnny wound up in the hospital and was given an IV most likely for dehydration. From what I remember reading last year, Johnny couldn't even hold down water before he was taken to the hospital.

Eight pounds is probably an exaggeration. . .

And: Does the US have three spots for men at the Olympics?

Well, if you have the shiz and vomit, it's entirely possible. :yikes:

No, it was a viral infection. Not from the diet.

EYS! :cheer2:

Actually, probably not. I saw him right afterwards, and he looked absolutely skeletal.

I think he always looks pretty "skeletal" It's one of the things that worries me about him.

From the magazine

"JW: I was very sick with a stomach virus, but I tried, anyway. I was eight pounds underweight, and I went out and missed a few jumps. It was absolutely the lowest point of my career. I was feeling so low that I quit skating for two months, and I wasnít sure if Iíd come back."


I don't get the"single day" reference. If he was sick for several days that's easily believable.

Perhaps you should read the article this thread is about.
