OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Max Aaron sure knows how to shake things up, jumping from fourth to first at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Sunday.

It was the first title for the 20-year-old, who has done very little of note since winning the U.S. junior title two years ago. But if he keeps this up, there's sure to be more success in store. Aaron finished with 255 points, almost four better than Ross Miner. When Aaron saw his marks, his mouth dropped open and he let out a roar.

Jeremy Abbott, who had won three of the last four U.S. titles, dropped to third with a flawed free skate.
