Figure Skater Max Aaron Advances To World Championship

Jewish figure skater Max Aaron will represent the United States at the men’s ice skating world championships after winning the U.S. men’s national championship in Omaha, Neb.

The 20-year-old was a surprise winner at this week’s event after landing two quads in Sunday’s free skate program, which vaulted him from fourth place to first.

In March, Aaron and second-place Ross Miner will both make their debut appearances on the world championship stage March 10-17 in London, Ontario.

Aaron, son of Neil and Mindy Aaron, is a Scottsdale native who moved to Colorado Springs to advance his training after suffering a broken back in 2008. His sister, Madeline Aaron, is also a figure skater.
