Jason Brown Skater, With a performance so electric it got the TD Garden crowd standing with 10 seconds left, Jason Brown of Highland Park won the free skate and finished second overall in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
While the men’s Olympic team would not be announced for a couple hours Sunday, it seemed certain the 19-year-old Brown would get one of the two men’s singles places.
When he heard his scores, Brown reacted with disbelieving joy over how high they were.
A resurgent Jeremy Abbott won his fourth national title with 274.27 points. Brown had 270.08.
Abbott finished 9th at the 2010 Olympics after a dazzling performance at nationals.
