Jason Brown Announces Coaching Change(5/29/18)
– 2014 Olympic Team Event bronze medalist and 2015 U.S. champion Jason Brown will train under Brian Orser and Tracy Wilson at the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club beginning this summer, Brown announced Tuesday.
Previously, Brown had trained under Kori Ade for nearly two decades.
“Words can’t ever fully capture the love and appreciation that I feel towards Kori [Ade] and her team and all that we accomplished together,” Brown said. “Kori has and will continue to be a major influence on me as a skater and a person. When I left Chicago in 2013, I took a major step toward independence, but now it’s time for me to take the next step.
“I’m excited about my future with Brian, Tracy and their incredible team of coaches. I’m eager to continue growing in the sport that I love.”
Brown will be training alongside two-time Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu and Olympic silver medalist Evgenia Medvedeva, among many other top-level skaters.
Last season, Brown earned the silver medal at Skate Canada International and placed third at the Four Continents Championships.
