American figure skater Jason Brown probably won't win an individual medal at these Olympics, but he might end up becoming a household name anyway. If that seems odd to you, don't worry, we can explain.
Who is Jason Brown?
Brown is a 19-year-old figure skater from Highland Park, Ill., who burst onto the scene when he won silver at the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships (we'll come back to that). He is competing in his first Olympics in Sochi, and he's the kind of fresh-faced athlete over whom commentators tend to lose their shit, Brennamanishly. If you watch him skate, you're very likely to hear someone say something about what "great young man" he is.
