“I just don’t want to replace Meryl [Davis] and this experience with anyone else — it’s so dear to me, so special, so much emotion involved into it,” Maks told the Seattle Times. “There’s nobody out there that I think will come along that I will be able to connect with on this level. I don’t want to win five, six, seven times, I just want to win once. It couldn’t be more perfect.”
