"This was a huge confidence jump. Now I can start treating the triple axel as just any jump and begin working on quads. I definitely feel I am ready to move forward now."
Brown knows he would need a quad to have any chance of making the 2014 Olympic team.
"My main goal is 2018," he said. "We have a five-year plan leading to that. It's possible to get there in 2014, but I don't want to focus on that and the quad too much if there would be a risk of getting injured by trying to rush."
ETA: Forgot to express my congratulations to all three American men: Farris, Brown, and Omori.
