Share this 🍀😍

Be prepared to be blown away by U.S. national champion figure skater Jason Brown, an incredible Olympic skater.

The song in this remarkable video is “Reel Around The Sun” from the Riverdance show.

His performance has to be one of the greatest skatings I’ve ever seen.

He somehow manages to Riverdance on ice! 

His technical skills were precise, his required jumps were flawless, his speed and power complemented the rest of Jason’s routine.

Not to mention his synchronicity with the music.

How did Olympic skater Jason Brown come up with this incredible “Riverdance on ice”?

As you have probably seen above his performance was absolutely breathtaking! Jason’s much-talked-about Olympic performance was set to “Reel Around the Sun” from Bill Whelan’s legendary Riverdance.

In this exclusive interview below, he talks about how the whole thing came together and how worried he was that he would even be able to actually do it. 

Jason says that

Normally a performance takes two months to run them cleanly but Riverdance took him six and a half months

The interview below shows what a humble performer he is and a truly great Olympic skater. 

Brown won a bronze medal in the team event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, becoming one of the youngest male figure skating Olympic medalists.

  1. Great Post. I try to be thankful for something every day. There is always something to be happy about and thankful for in everyone”s day. Life is never perfect. The skater who won gold in this past Olympic Games fell 3 times in the world competition last night. Every time after the fall she got up again and continued. Her great upset did not show until she got off the ice. I am sure she will learn much about herself, and about not always being perfect in the next months. A golfer at the Masters this weekend dislocated his ankle while walking down a hill. He pushed it back in place and continued his play. To be free in life requires you always get up and continue and to be thankful for all that did go right each day. I am sure the skater and golfer were thankful they both could continue without serious injuries. Both at a difficult time did not give away their power. Their life may be the life so many would look at as wonderful, but each are very much in control. This is part of reason they got to a high level. I am sure they had people along the way say to them, “you can make it. As well as people saying the opposite. But each owned and wrote their own story they wanted for themselves. They learned how important it is to be fearless, take on challenges and not worry what others say when your day was not perfect and things did not go as you expected. CLOVER

  3. This was a fantastic show of skating he had me crying. I couldn’t believe his moves over and over again he is unbelievable.

  4. I was/am amazed at his performance! While I was watching it, my right foot started bouncing to the beat, unbeknownst to me at first. His amazing continual spins had me at hello! Thank you for making my evening. I am hoping to be able to somehow copy this to show on my television at my St. Patrick’s Day dinner! Thanks!

  5. Absolutely fantastic! Could not believe the jumps so late in the performance; such strength. And the ‘Riverdance’ footwork . ..sublime

  6. Even though this happened awhile ago, he skated with the joy of the music and caught the spirit of Ireland! I give this performance straight 10’s! Amazing, fantastic, this is so fun to just watch again and again and I’m sharing too‼️‼️‼️
