Interesting to watch Tom Z navigate his way into Social media. It can be a tool with many "edges"
I am so impatient to see some flashes from Max's new programs! That clip of him trying to samba did NOT look good, unfortunately.
I posted the links below about the down-to-earth Aarons in the Younger Siblings thread, but ICYMT there or when they first were published:

Instagram video from coachtomz (Aug 29):
US Champs hard at work: Olympian Rachael Flatt assists Max Aaron with part of his long program choreography. So proud of both of them!
Below are links to video, photos, and article re Aaron and Zawadzki in action (off ice) at the S.T.A.R.S. combine in July 2013. All from last month, but I don't think any of it was posted elsewhere on GS.
Olympic ice skating hopefuls test their skills (1:49 video)
Published: July 22, 2013
Almost 20 young men and women -- all ice skaters -- showed up to the Standardized Testing of Athleticism to Recognize Skaters program (STARS) this month to get feedback on what they need to work on, and how.
In addition to Aaron and Zawadzki, I'm pretty sure that Jordan Moeller can be seen testing his skills. (And maybe Mroz in a different sequence?? Can't make out the face.) Jason Brown seems to be visible in the bkgd.
Four photos of Aaron and Zawadzki as they are tested:

ETA (Sep 21), another Pinterest photo -- similar to or the same as a photo in Skating magazine:
Wonder when the photos were taken. His hair is definitely different from the season, and even further, different from how he wore it at Champs Camp (as seen in the Shibsibs video)
Glad to hear that the rumoured injury and withdrawal in the Men's event at Salt Lake is not Max. All the best to the competitors. Best wishes for speedy and complete recoveries for those with injuries at this time of year.
Fellow skaters tweeted photos of Max Aaron as they all travel to SLC:
ETA, one more:
If @joshDfarris is part of the same caravan, then they all are having a long day:

ETA, Instagram caption (Sep 10) from coachtomz:
#Travelday #airports #delayed #thunderstorms Max and I are on our way to Salt Lake City for the International Classic but not without the plane:/

ETA, love this tweet from @SkatingLesson:
The entire Aaron family makes us want to do three long programs a day. Plus sections. #SLC2013

Aaron's practice was terrific. He looked more nervous for the competition. But he is a fighter.
Thanks, KKonas. Appreciate your comments above (as well as all your contributions to the SLC thread).
And thanks to Jennifer Comeaux for this short (fourteen-second) but sweet video after the men's medal ceremony in SLC.
The caption notes that Josh Farris is signing autographs , and also shown in the same shot is Max Aaron enjoying interaction with the crowd.
