2014 Olympian Jason Brown won the silver medal Saturday night at Skate Canada International in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Brown’s medal marked his fifth career grand prix medal and the first he has earned outside the U.S. (Skate America) since his first senior international season in 2013-14, when he earned bronze at Trophée Éric Bompard.

It was the third medal won by a U.S. skater Saturday. Ashley Wagner, who won team bronze medal with Brown at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014, earned bronze for the women, while the ice dance team of Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue also finished third.

Reigning world silver medalist Shoma Uno of Japan won the gold with a total score of 301.10.

Brown improved from third after the short program by scoring 170.43 points in his free skate for a 261.14 total, to reach a grand prix podium for the fifth straight season.

The 22-year-old Brown, 22, fell on his opening quadruple toe loop, but recovered from his fall by landing seven triple-jumps throughout he rest of his program to “Inner Love” my Maxime Rodriguez.

Russia’s Alexander Samarin, who was fourth after the short, took the bronze medal with 250.06 points.

Three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada, who won both his grand prix assignments last season, went from second in the short program to seventh in the free skate, finishing in fourth.
