    RISE: Max Aaron, a film by Liberty Mutual - YouTube

    Published on Dec 20, 2013

    Ask U.S. figure skater Max Aaron what it all came down to, and he'll say mental preparation. It was the biggest performance of his career, and he blew it. Everyone said he'd never fit in. Everyone said he'd never be a champion. But instead of giving up, Max got back up. Now, Max is on the RISE and in the running for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

    On his journey to make Team USA, there's no turning back — there's no stopping him.

    At Liberty Mutual, we believe with every setback, there's a chance to come back. RISE.

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAxq7DTNm3g

    EDIT: A couple of other brief RISE videos...

    U.S. Olympic Hopeful Max Aaron has one goal going into 2014. Find out what his resolution to RISE is in this video.

    Max Aaron: Inspiration to RISE

    What inspires you to keep going? If you ask U.S. figure skater Max Aaron, he'll tell you the same thing every time. Watch this video to find out his inspiration.

    Great tidbits from golden411 @GS!

    ~ Max is one of the selected athletes shown in stylized artwork at the top of two of Liberty Mutual's general pages about its sponsorship program:

    http://www.libertymutual.com/team-usa/sponsorship/

    http://team-usa.libertymutual.com/rise-stories/

    And of course Max's image also is on the page showing all of the Team LM athletes:

    http://www.libertymutual.com/team-usa/athletes/

    ~ Edea Skates has a page with three photos of Max from the year that he was the U.S. junior men's champion.

    http://www.edeaskates.com/en/ice-ska...max-aaron.html

    Edea will have a booth at U.S. Nats, which I assume would include the great poster from Italian Nats of Max in his Tron costume. Hope so.

    ~ And the company that makes Lara Bars is showing some love for Max. After he posted a thank-you tweet for a gift pkg of its products, the company's reply:‏

    @larabar
    @MaxTAaron You are so welcome! You have a fan in us.

    A fun taste of Max the musician's talent and skill lasts just a second or two in this video, starting at approx 0:30. Don't blink or you'll miss him as he enjoys his return to drumming , which was a serious endeavor for several years in his youth.

    Sochi 2014 Olympics: Under-the-Radar American Athletes to Watch for
    BY TYLER BROOKE (FEATURED COLUMNIST) ON DECEMBER 24, 2013

    Excerpt:

    Max Aaron, Figure Skating

    Pic: http://img.bleacherreport.net/img/ar...650&h=433&q=85
    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    An injury to Evan Lysacek will keep him out of the Olympics, which means other American figure skaters are going to need to step up in his absence.

    One of those names is Max Aaron, and he's looked very good over the past couple of years.

    At 21 years old, Aaron made a name for himself during the 2009-10 season in junior nationals, finishing in the top three in all three of his events. The next season, he competed and won in both the U.S. Championship and Southwest Regional for the junior division. This past season in 2012-13, he won the U.S. Championship as well as the international U.S. Classic, which he also won once again this year.

    With Lysacek out, Aaron is becoming an even bigger name than he already was, and with some luck in Sochi, he could be seeing the podium and grabbing a medal for the United States.

    Another USFS teleconf.: After careful consideration @MaxTAaron announced he will not try 4toe in FS at U.S. Championships; sticks w/2 4Sals.

    Lynn Rutherford ‏@LynnRutherford 1h
    More on Aaron: Max worked w/Lori Nichol to re-choreograph much of FS & is using different sections of Carmen score: "It flows better."
    From GS Forum:

    KKonas
    Just got off teleconference with Aaron. Said he and Lori Nichol have completely retooled his FS, music changes (still from Carmen), jump layout, and now only 2 quads planned for Nationals. He has been very disappointed with his performances so far and is now feeling much more confident going into Boston.
    EDIT:

    Tom Zakrajsek ‏@CoachTomZ 2h
    @LynnRutherford This new version has the music pieces and pacing that Lori originally wanted. It shows Max as a complete skater. I like it!

    US men's figure skating champ Max Aaron to drop from 3 to 2 quads in long program
    By RACHEL COHEN AP Sports Writer
    First Posted: December 27, 2013 - 5:49 pm

    Excerpt:

    Max Aaron was disgusted.

    After a sloppy long program at the NHK Trophy in early November sunk him to seventh place, the U.S. champion convened with his support team and deliberated on his options. In an Olympic year, he decided to make a drastic change less than two months before the 2014 U.S. championships: Aaron is dropping from three to two quadruple jumps in his long program.

    "Every time I watch a performance, I'm disgusted with how I've skated," he said on a conference call Friday. "It's very hurtful for me."
