    2-time Olympian Weir leads Ice Dreams in Jamestown, N.Y.: http://www.goerie.com/article/201305...n-Jamestown-NY
    On Saturday, he'll skate to pop and classical pieces when he performs in Ice Dreams in Jamestown, N.Y.

    "I'll be doing Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' for the first time; it's the debut of that performance," Weir said. "Also I'll be doing a very classical 'Swan Lake' to start the show in a figure-skating way that people are used to seeing. Then, by the end of the show, we're all going crazy and there's Gaga and costuming and craziness."

    He'll skate hard. He has to; he was born that way. Expect tough jumps, including triple axels.

    "I want to go back to the hotel that night and just die from exhaustion because I've skated that hard and I performed that hard for the audience," Weir said. "So, while it's not a competitive program ... I'm still doing Olympic quality figure skating."

    He hopes to snag one of just two U.S. men's Olympic spots for 2014. Current U.S. champ Max Aaron will also be in the hunt, and he's also in Saturday's show, but don't expect to see any friction. Weir said few veterans treated him warmly when he was an up-and-comer, but he aims to be different.

    "We're absolutely friends. Max is an incredible skater, and so young," Weir said. "Now that I'm the vet, I look at young guys as people I have to encourage. They are the new wave of American figure skating."

    In the video that Sylvia posted I recognized the pretty blond as Piper Gilles. I know that wasn't Paul skating with her so who was it? Thanks!
