OSRUI Alum Jason Brown came in second yesterday in the U.S. Men’s Figure Skating Championships, earning him a spot on the team heading to Sochi for the Olympics!! Jason was a camper from 2003 – 2008, in Kallah, Tzofim, and Moshavah. Sibs Jordan and Dylan and mom Marla Kell Brown are all alumni as well. OSRUI is kvelling along with them!
The Chicago Tribune described his long program yesterday as “the most electric performance of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Brown had the TD Garden audience standing, shouting and clapping Sunday with 10 seconds left in a free skate to Irish step dance music. The judges applauded in their way, giving Brown first place in the free skate and second overall.”
Here’s a video of his award winning performance yesterday. Enjoy!
