Here is the second entry of my favorite figure skating moments of 2014:
9. Abbott and Aaron earn three spots for the US Men at the 2014 World Championships in Saitama. Not since the post Olympic World Championships in 2010 have the US Men earned three spots for the next year. The combination of Jeremy Abbott (5th) and Max Aaron (8th) were the magic numbers to start the next quadrennium with a full slate. Best wishes to the US men this year to push for the podium and maintain the momentum.
