    5 Quads for Max Aaron?


    http://www.azcentral.com/sports/azet...-champion.html
    By next season, Aaron expects to be competing with a quad toe jump in addition to his quad salchow and perhaps be attempting five quads combined in his two programs.

    “I have the power,” Aaron said. “All it is is a mental game.”

    Impressive goal! I wish he would work on his presentation skills during the off-season. I would hate to see him be confused as to why his PCS might be so low if he didn't next season.

    His coach is Tom Zakrajsek, who apparently sees no value in working on presentation skills. IMO, Max needs to dump Tom Z for Christy Krall.

    I know that you can't really stop the technical progression but things like this make me really worried.

    Competitive athletes are already putting a huge amount of strain over bodies resulting in being pretty much perma-injured. Once doing 4-5 quads over the course of two programs becomes the norm, it will only get worse. :(

    I was thinking pretty much the same thing. If guys start doing (and more to the point, constantly practicing) that many quads and that many different quads, their hips are going to shatter into smithereens. I do not feel comfortable watching a generation of disposable skaters.

    Look what happened to Joshua Farris when he did! (Although I am also inclined to attribute a good portion of that to Damon Allen.) He became such a lovely, expressive, artistic skater, and he didn't lose anything technically.

    FREE MAX AARON!

    Before he gets hurt, preferably...
