I actually don't like Jason Brown - I think I was thinking more of Adam Rippon, who is slightly more athletic than Brown but about as artistic. Brown seems like a watered down Matthew Savoie - anyone remember him?BaroqueAgain1 wrote:It's quite a shame for the men - nobody cares how artistic you are now if you can't do quads.
I don't know. Jason Brown, who is known more for his artistry than his spectacular jumps, just finished third at the recent international competition in Taiwan. Finished in front of jumpers who can't match his grace and musicality on the ice.
I think the judges still love that artistry. It's kept Jason on our Olympic team.
But I really enjoy Nathan Chen, the quad machine. And I preferred Evan Lysacek over Johnny Weir. So maybe I prefer athleticism over artistry.
I really just want to watch Virtue/Moir ice dance all day.
