Jason Brown electrified the TD Garden crowd with a clean and powerful free-skate Sunday, but Jeremy Abbott – who set a national short program record Friday – earned his fourth title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Following his free-skate, which included a few minor issues, Abbott lingered as fans tossed flowers onto the ice.

“I knew that I skated well enough to win and I knew this was my last year at nationals,” Abbott said on NBC. “I just wanted to soak it all in.”

Brown finished second, and defending national champion Max Aaron placed third.

“I couldn’t have asked for anything more,” Brown said. “I was so trained, and I was ready to fight for whatever I could. That’s what I did. I enjoyed every moment. I enjoyed the crowd.

“They could not have been more responsive, more generous, more exciting.”

 

Later Sunday, U.S. Figure Skating will announce the two men who will compete in Sochi.
