As promised, Johnny Weir did not wear fur for the free skate as he did at the U.S. Championships, which drew the ire of animal rights groups. Instead of the controversial costume with a fox fur trim, Weir wore a costume that he wore to Grand Prix events, including the Cup of Russia and the Grand Prix Final.
In this outfit, Weir skated an excellent routine. He did not throw a quadruple jump as he had mentioned that he might, but the skate was technically and artistically sound. He finished in sixth place, but seemed pleased with his performance.
