Brittany Jones (born January 18, 1996) is a Canadian pair skater. With Joshua Reagan, she is the 2016 U.S. International Classic champion. She finished in the top six at three World Junior Championships with earlier partners.

Career[edit]

Jones teamed up with Kurtis Gaskell around 2008. They placed sixth at the 2011 World Junior Championships. They split after the 2012 Canadian Championships. Jones then had a one-year partnership with Ian Beharry. The two finished sixth at the 2013 World Junior Championships.

In October 2013,[1] Jones was paired with U.S. skater Joshua Reagan by Kristy Wirtz and Kris Wirtz, who coached the pair in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.[2] Jones/Reagan decided to compete for Canada and placed seventh at the 2014 Canadian Championships. They changed coaches in spring 2015, moving to Bryce Davison.[3]

Jones/Reagan won gold at the 2016 U.S. International Classic after placing second in the short and first in the free.[4][5]
