    “The system is a lot of hot air,” former American champion Johnny Weir was reported as saying at the recent United States nationals. Weir finished sixth at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics despite what he calls the moment of his life in the free skate and doesn’t understand why.

    “They try to make it as complicated as possible so you can’t see what goes on behind closed doors,” Weir said. “The system is just smoke and mirrors.”
