    Sorry for dumb questions, but ...

    (1) What is the definition of "Previous Competition?"

    (2) Where/when did Denis Ten score 204.33?
    ETA, maybe you are referring to his score at the Volvo Open Cup in Jan 2013. So I return to my first question above -- as to what Previous Competition means.

    @USFigure Skating tweeted quotes and paraphrased comments from Max Aaron's pre-Skate America media conference call today:

    "I am super pleased with how the International Classic went, even though I didn't skate perfect" - @MaxTAaron

    . @MaxTAaron says doubling his quad Sal reminds him how difficult the jump is. Eager to work hard on the element.
    [Comment from g411: It actually was his quad toe that he doubled at the Int'l Classic, so USFS mis-tweeted or (maybe MTA mis-spoke).]

    .@MaxTAaron admits that he is more inexperienced than most internationally, but is looking forward to getting his programs out there.

    @MaxTAaron "No backing down" from doing three quads in his free skate and two triple Axels in the second half.

    Skating first at @HiltonHHonors Skate America, @MaxTAaron wants to set the tone and end up in the second warmup group for the free skate.

    "I have watched my program 1,000 times, I think all of the views on YouTube are me." @MaxTAaron

    "Go big or go home. That's my approach." - @MaxTAaron

    @MaxTAaron just dropped the words "Lung capacity" and "lactic acid threshold"

    @MaxTAaron called @EvanLysacek an idol of his and that he can't wait to step out on to the ice with him. Dissapointed [sic] he wont be at #SA2013

    You are correct. I was going by the bio page, and looking at the scores for the last event listed, didn't notice it took place in January, has been edited

    Thanks, enlight. What a helpful way to summarize the "pre-season" standings statistically.
