Olympian Johnny Weir is not headed to the Winter Olympics to be held next year in Sochi, Russia.

According to the AP, U.S. Figure Skating confirmed Tuesday that Weir did not register for the national championships before the September 1 deadline. The Sochi team will be selected from those competing.

The New York Times wrote that Weir's decision to not skate at the Sochi Olympics probably means the end of his competitive career.

Weir came out gay in his 2010 memoir Welcome to My World and married his husband Victor Voronov in New York the following year.

The always provocative Weir raised the possibility of going to Sochi in several interviews, including telling CBS News that he was prepared to be arrested in Russia for looking “too gay,” which he said could be a violation of a Russian law which prohibits the promotion of “gay propaganda” to minors.

“You know, like anyone I'm afraid of being arrested but also I'm not afraid of being arrested,” Weir said. “Myself even walking down the street going to get Starbucks in the morning and somebody could arrest me just because I look too gay.”

He also attracted controversy by opposing a proposal to boycott the Winter Olympics over the Russian anti-gay law.
