US Olympic Figure Skating 2014: Meet the USA's Men's Team
Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The thrilling men’s competition at the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships delivered one largely expected and proven skater to the U.S. Olympic figure skating team, alongside a rising star whom frankly few saw coming.

Jeremy Abbott put down the short program of his life on Friday and followed it up with a clutch free skate Sunday to capture gold at the national championships, earning his way to the second Olympics of his stellar career.

Yet it was U.S. silver medalist Jason Brown who stole the show during Sunday’s free skate, gliding his way to the top performance of the day and an unexpected spot on the U.S. figure skating team heading to Sochi.

With Abbott, the U.S. men’s team has the experience and dependability it needs in Sochi. With Brown, there’s significant potential for some star power that could deliver electric moments in the Games.

Combined, they provide more intrigue and potential than many thought there would be for the U.S. men's figure skating team in the Winter Olympics.
