Despite failing to medal, Team USA figure skater Jason Brown has been one of the feel-good stories in Sochi. The 19-year-old was simply thrilled to be competing in his first Olympics ever.

His hometown of Highland Park, Illinois was also ecstatic for its Olympian. The town erected a 10-foot tall ice sculpture of Brown in the center of downtown.
