It is the first winter sport to be included in the Olympic Games wherein competitors perform moves of spins, jumps, and intricate movements while gliding on ice. This is Figure Skating and it is as much a sport as it is a dance. The athletes are so graceful and yet are able to execute powerful steps in motion.

He obviously lives for this. Look at his composure. That is confidence!

To think that he is performing not just in front of a live crowd but also to millions around the world tuned in to watch the Olympic Games. You really have to be at your best for this. The Games are held every four years, alternating between the Summer and Winter games every two years.

The man has pinpoint accuracy in his moves and there are emotions on display. Jason starts of slow with delicate stretches of his arms. He stands erect but not too stiff keeping himself ready for what’s next.

Brown explodes with ridiculous footwork, with leaps and spins obviously inspired by Irish dancing.

The sequence gets the crowd cheering and the music builds as the momentum grows with the changing mood of the dance.

Jason has the audience in his hands. He smiles at them during the right moments, he looks at them before executing one of his crazy jump-and-spin multiple times sequences and it is obvious now that he is feeding of the crowd’s energy. He is fantastic!

It is a sensational routine to watch but don’t let it deceive you. It is fast and seriously difficult to do. Even Jason admitted to this to his choreographer:

“You are crazy. There’s no way I can keep up with this music… I can’t pull this off!”

But through work and perseverance he did and 1.7 million views later viewers are still admiring his talent.

The frenzy of the crowd clapping to the music is contagious and Jason at speed, glides through the ice, leaping and splitting and continuously pouring on the heart-pounding moves even impressing the commentators.

He’s not done yet but already the crowd is giving him a standing ovation and after a series of mind numbing spins, Jason finishes with his arm stretched out with a smile that says, “I got it!”
