Olympic Skater ‘Irish Dances’ Across Ice, Brings Entire Stadium To Their Feet

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 actually be able to 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. 

What is Jason Brown doing in 2021?

Well, according to Wikipedia, he has been very busy. Jason Brown was assigned to compete at the 2020 Skate Canada International, but the event was also cancelled due to the pandemic.

As a result, Brown made his season debut at the 2021 U.S. Championships in Las Vegas, placing third in the short program with a clean skate. In the free skate, he fell on a quad toe loop that was also deemed underrotated and singled a planned triple Axel, placing fourth in that segment, but remained in third place overall and won the bronze medal. He was named to the American team for the 2021 World Championships in Stockholm. 

I look forward to seeing where he goes in 2022. If you ever get a chance to catch him live, I would say it is incredible to watch.
