Julian Kyle Silverio Macaraeg (born May 15, 2003) is a Filipino-American short-track speed skater who competed in the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics in Lausanne.
Macaraeg, whose parents immigrated to the United States in the 1980s and 1990s, began skating at the age of three. He played hockey at the age of 5 and then switched to speed skating when he was 6 or 7 years old.
Macaraeg first joined the Philippine National Short Track Team in 2018, and first raced in the ISU World Cup Short Track series that year. He achieved an overall world rank of #137 for the 2019-2020 season.
Macaraeg was one of two Filipino athletes to be selected to attend the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics, and in doing so became the first Filipino short track speed skater to compete at the Youth Olympics. In the 500m, Macaraeg won his qualifying heat, moving him on to the quarterfinals, however he did not advance in the 1000m, and his Mixed-NOC relay made it to the B Final.
Macaraeg was also featured by the Olympic Channel, in a video highlighting him as the first Filipino short-track speed skater at the Youth Olympics.
