    I think Max reminds me so much of Brian Joubert. This year, his programs are showing a focus on everything other than the jumps, which is fantastic. If he demonstates a successful education and transitions to a more mature and dancey quality to his skating while landing those jumps, his marks will sky rocket. His placement pattern will start to mimic that of Javier, and a rivalry may begin for after 2014.

    At the International Classic in SLC, 7 year-old Kai Kovar practices his floor jumping and catches a glimpse of Max Aaron. Check out his awesome rotating position. I can't believe he is at the preliminary level.

    Liberty Mutual sponsoring some Sochi 2014 hopefuls
    The Associated Press
    Published: Wednesday, Sep. 25, 2013 - 1:36 pm

    BOSTON -- Liberty Mutual, a U.S. Olympic Committee sponsor, has announced the athletes it will be supporting for the 2014 Sochi Olympics and Paralympics.

    Two-time Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott (snowboardcross) and former world champion Katie Uhlaender (skeleton) are on the list, as are Max Aaron (figure skating), J.R. Celski (short track speedskating), Jazmine Fenlator (bobsled), Jen Hudak (freestyle skiing), Jessica Jerome (ski jumping), and Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux (twin sisters on the U.S. ice hockey team).

    Liberty Mutual says the athletes were chosen in part because each has endured and overcome some sort of struggle.

    Paralympic athletes Rico Roman and Andy Soule are also part of the group. Former Olympians Picabo Street and Chris Klug are the group's ambassadors.

    Liberty Mutual's sponsorship of the USOC continues through 2016.

    Scottsdale figure skater Max Aaron continues ‘grinding away’
    By Bryce Miller
    USA Today Sports
    Mon Sep 30, 2013 9:14 PM

    Excerpt:

    PARK CITY, Utah - The best way for Max Aaron to describe the leaps and bounds of his growing figure-skating fame is to reach for a computer mouse.

    Click, and he’s suddenly there — for the world to see.

    “My picture’s on Google now,” said Aaron, the Scottsdale native who made and eighth-to-first leap in one year to win the 2013 U.S. men’s championship. “You type my name in, and there it is.”

    Promoting His Sport To The Max

    BY AMY ROSEWATER | OCT 01, 2013, 12:08 PM ET

    Excerpt:

    PARK CITY, Utah – It is 7:14 a.m. and Max Aaron already has had breakfast, gotten into his figure skating costume and skates, and at the moment, he is jumping on a plastic surface in a hotel meeting room.

    Sports Illustrated photographer Simon Bruty was clicking away as Aaron did his best to jump as high as he can for the camera.

    “Excellent job, mate,” Bruty said. “But can you do that again? Just move back a little bit.”

    Aaron does jump again and again.

    “I’m jumping as high as I can,” Aaron said.

    “Now can you do the splits?” Bruty asked.

    To which Aaron laughs and offers to do a different pose instead.

    “You’re doing great,” Bruty said before adding, “especially for 7:15 in the morning.”
