    The final warm up group has assembled! Can you believe we're nearly to the last event of #Boston2014

    I'm sooooooooooo nervous! With time delays in watching foreign competitions, I'm used to knowing the results BEFORE I see the programs; same day LIVE is torture!!

    EDIT: More from warm-up...

    But Max, bb, please don't look so sad. You'll make me cry again, in a bad way.

    Our local TV station- NBC affiliate- had some comments about the ladies results and also about Max missing the Olympic team. They interviewed Mark O'Meara about it.. They also asked him about Mirai being bumped off the team. Basically Mark said it's the USFSA's decision. He did not say for or against it. He said Max needs to work on other aspects of his skating (I am paraphrasing).

    Defending champion Max Aaron, 21, of Scottsdale, Ariz., was third with 260.44 points (173.49 in the free). "I feel satisfied," he said. "Two flaws in the program (including a touched hand on one of his two opening quads), but I gave it a good attack."
    http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/20...MhI/story.html

    Defending champion Max Aaron, who received a surprisingly low 86.95 in the short program, was solid in the free skate, netting a score of 173.49 and totaling 260.44. His score was still high enough for him to capture third.

    “Today didn’t go as planned as in training, but it’s just an honor to be in the Olympic trials, it’s huge for me,” Aaron said. “Standing next to these two great guys who put on two great skates; it’s just an honor to be up here with them.”

    2014 U.S. Olympic Team - Men's Singles Nominations
    Jeremy Abbott
    Jason Brown

    Alternate No. 1 - Max Aaron
    Alternate No. 2 - Joshua Farris
    Alternate No. 3 - Richard Dornbush
    At least there's this...so, Max made it to the Olympic roster...if not the actual Olympics.

    I wish our Olympic team well, but honestly I won't be as invested as I would have been with Max on the team.

    Nationals was filled with so many emotions! I'm so excited to have been named to the World Jr Team and I'm also very proud of my brother. He put in a tremendous performance and was named an alternate for the Olympics. Although he didn't make the team, he inspires not only me but so many other people!

    Scottsdale's Max Aaron left off U.S. Olympic team
    By Jeff Metcalfe,
    AZCentral Sports

    Excerpt:

    “I really want the best men to go, and if it’s not me, it’s not me,” Aaron said while waiting for the decision that will make the 21-year-old work four more years for another Olympic shot.

    Max Aaron put the heat on his competitors, being the first of the "fab four" to skate. Performing to the familiar music from "Carmen," Aaron planned two quads instead of his standard three. He stuck the first one in combination and touched and hand down on the other. The "king of quad" has a mighty big arsenal indeed. Most impressive to me is that he was still ripping off triples in the final minute of his program. Aaron perfectly executed a triple trifecta of flip,loop and toe in less than 45 seconds with time winding down. Understand, by this time most skaters legs are burning, along with their lungs. The former hockey player skates tough, plays hard and means business. Athlete first, artist next. It works for Max Aaron.

    Words can't express how thankful I am for everything in life and all the love everyone has given me.

    We love you, Max! You always make us proud...you are a wonderful role model, both on and off the ice. You bring honor to yourself and your family every day.

    EDIT: The text copy from Facebook...

    Words can't express how thankful I am for everything in life and all the love everyone has given me.

    Sorry for the delay but I wanted to take the time to write something from the heart. I want to thank all my friends, family, fans and sponsors for all the support this year leading up to my first Olympic Trials. It breaks my heart knowing I won't be at the games but I know we have an amazing team. Congratulations to all the team members, especially my friends Jeremy and Jason. My spirit will live through the team, hoping for success in every discipline. I am honored to be selected for the World Championships and hope to make the USA Proud! Can't thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for the moments you all have given me. If there was a way to thank each and every one of you I would. Go USA!
