ESPOO, Finland - Former U.S. figure skating champion Johnny Weir, a Coatesville native, returns to competition this weekend in the Finlandia Trophy.
Weir, a three-time winner at nationals (2004-06), has not competed since finishing sixth in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. He also was fifth in the 2006 Games in Turin, Italy.
Weir has said he is coming back because he wants to skate in the Sochi Olympics in two years. He plans to skate in two Grand Prix series events this season.
