Jason Brown moving to Toronto to work under elite coach Brian Orser

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – American skater Jason Brown is heading to Toronto to be trained by Brian Orser.

Brown, a 2014 Olympic team bronze medalist and 2015 U.S. champion, announced the move Tuesday. He’d trained under Kori Ade for nearly two decades.

Orser coaches Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu, the first man to repeat as Olympic champion since Dick Button in 1952. Orser won two Olympic bronze medals as a singles skater.

“Words can’t ever fully capture the love and appreciation that I feel towards Kori 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 (Wilson) and their incredible team of coaches. I’m eager to continue growing in the sport that I love.”

Brown will be training alongside Hanyu and Olympic silver medalist Evgenia Medvedeva of Russia, who also recently moved to work with Orser.
