Male/Male Pairs Skating (sort of) feat. Johnny Weir & Hongbo Zhao

In a Chinese ice show, Johnny Weir and Hongbo Zhao did a routine with a few pairs moves (well… the throw axel and they skated together). This program could’ve been more substantial as most of it consisted of Johnny doing laborious crossovers on the ice but the costumes were nice.

What did you think of this performance? Let me know in the comments!
