The man who many viewers feel is the perfect choice for NBC Olympics coverage is having a great time in Sochi working. Talking to the Today show on Monday, it appears that Johnny Weir has been welcomed by Russia and the Olympics with open arms. Apparently he isn't even a tiny bit afraid of Russia.

“I’m not afraid of Russia. I've never had one bad homophobic experience here,” said Johnny Weir on the Today show. The skater was all smiles as he discussed his journey so far with his job at the Olympics.
