Just off teleconference with Ross Miner. Said is ankle injury (sprain) has been resolved (he changed his boots) and is in full training which has been going well. No decision yet on quad Salchow in SP but looks good. Theme for FS is Boston Strong, reflecting a tribute to those hurt in the Boston Marathon bombing. Said it was the easiest program to choreograph. He is always nervous for Nationals but not any more nervous because of it being held in Boston. He is very excited to compete there.
Per Lynn Rutherford on Twitter :
On his teleconference @jasonbskates said he's working on his quad every day, but it will not be in programs at '14 US Championships.
For quad, Brown & coach Kori Ade are sticking with same strategy they used for 3A: "Not pushing too hard, not risking integrity of programs"
The strategy may work; w/o quad Brown scored 84.77 for his short during Grand Prix. Will focus on flow in & out of jumps to gain higher GOE.
