    Skate America preview: U.S. champions to be tested in Grand Prix opener
    Nicholas McCarvel Oct 16, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Excerpts:

    The Grand Prix figure skating season gets underway this weekend in Detroit with Skate America, which features all six reigning U.S. national champions.

    Two-time world champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White lead the ice dancing field, and Max Aaron and Ashley Wagner will be in medal contention in singles.
    Aaron is the name to watch in men’s singles, which has suffered from two high-profile withdrawals. Last month, Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek pulled out of the event due to a hip injury, and Wednesday, Denis Ten, who won the silver medal at the 2013 World Championships, also withdrew, reportedly due to an illness.

    It’s the first Grand Prix event for the 21-year-old Aaron, who was seventh at the World Championships following his national title in Omaha.

    “I’m looking forward to skating with the best of them,” Aaron told reporters on a conference call last week. “I want to lay out these programs and compete with the best in the world. There’s no holding back for me.”

    Aaron has three quadruple jumps planned for his free skate, as well as two triple axels for the second half of the program as he makes the leap — literally and figuratively — onto the international stage.

    While he’s never skated against Lysacek, Aaron will get to compare himself to an Olympic medalist — Japan’s Daisuke Takahashi, who won bronze in Vancouver.

    Max has proven time and time again that he can take the hits and misses, and come back stronger than ever! Each obstacle is just a learning experience...face it, learn from it, and live to fight another day.

    He's not used to coming into a competition as a front-runner or favorite; there's a lot more pressure now. But he's young, and he'll grow stronger with each new day.

    So proud of Max! He's a FIGHTER! Love his determination & toughness. Even being a little off his game, he never gave up, never gave in!

    Here's a breakdown of Max's LP music:

    Machida is Skate America winner

    Excerpt:

    If Rippon played the figure-skating equivalent of a faun in his performance, Aaron played a bull. A former junior hockey player, Aaron chocked his long program with three difficult quadruple jumps on the theory that points earned for the technical rigor of his performance would compensate for what he lacks in his still-developing artistry.

    And though Aaron stumbled in one fashion or another on each quad — two-footing the landing on his first Salchow and putting a hand down to keep himself upright on his second — his fundamental strategy was sound. He earned the night’s second-highest “element scores” for his program’s degree of difficulty, which helped close the gap for his sixth-place score on the more artistic aspects, such as interpretation, execution and transitions.

    Whether the total package is enough to earn Aaron a spot in the Sochi Olympics is unclear. The United States has been allotted just two spots for men’s singles at the 2014 Winter Games. Less than four months out, it’s difficult to identify the front-runners.

    But Aaron made clear after his performance that he intends to stick with his high-stakes strategy.

    “It didn’t go as planned today,” said Aaron, 21, who was mired in sixth entering the free skate, having fallen during his opening quad in Friday’s short program, as well. “But I’m not gonna back down. I’m not afraid of it. I want that three quad program! That’s what’s going to set me apart in the U.S.”

    And he had a word for the critics behind the e-mails and tweets that criticize his efforts and question the marks he receives for the ambitious programs that might be beyond his grasp just now.

    “I take that into practice with me,” Aaron said, explaining that doubters only drive him to work harder to prove his point.
