One is a 28-year-old Olympian with four national championships and the other is a 19-year-old who just completed his first senior international season. They are two very different skaters, but they are united under the same goal. That goal is to bring home an Olympic medal when they represent the U.S. at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Jeremy Abbott and Jason Brown were named to the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team earlier this month at the  U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston, Massachusetts. Both were excited to make the team.

“I came here to get the business done and go to Sochi and I accomplished that. I’m extremely excited,” said Jeremy Abbott.

But getting to this point in their skating careers didn’t come easy. To read the rest of this story, click here.
