sarahjoannie419, I'm impressed with you knowledge about figure skating. You're only 13 and you know skaters who were competing when you were 8 Wink

I don't think any of them will compete again. Michelle said she won't do that.

Just saw a new video of Sasha. She cut her hair very short Sad. She talks about how she's going to college, and then she skates to Pink. Guess this is bad news for anyone who was still holding on to any hope she would compete again.

Yeah, Sasha's pretty confirmed that she is done with competitive figure skating in this article: Sasha Cohen: ‘I think that I’m truly done’

Sasha's skating wasn't exactly my cup of tea, but there's no denying she was a very beautiful skater to watch. I hope only good for her in the future, and that she gains new experiences that her strenuous training may not have allowed her to experience. Yep!

ETA: Oh, and from the video Star85 posted, she got accepted to NYU (I read somewhere that it was specifically NYU Paul McGhee Division - a college for adult students to complete their undergrad degree programs). Good for her and best of luck!

Sasha is definitely a great skater, although I've never really been her fan.

Actually, I've just recently realized that the problem I've always had with her is the same one I have now with Yu-Na.
Sasha can't possibly be more different from Yu-Na when it comes to her flexibility and beautiful lines that I absolutely love about her, but to me there is something very similar in the way they interpret the music or their way of selling a program (I like Sasha much better though).

I've always found something rather unnatural and forced in their presentation that instead of really becoming the music or the character they were portaying, I often got the feeling they were showing off themselves and their tricks while using the music as a very effective background.

I don't know how to say it, it's like: "Look at me! Now I'm going to do this spectacular move and you'll just love it! See how well I'm acting?"

Not my style, although it obviously works with many people. I'm just wondering if those who like it, also see it as a similar quality these two have.

Anyways, thanks for posting those videos, it was nice to remind myself of some of Sasha's memorable performances. Loved the 2000 SP!
You haven't included her 2006 Olympic SP one (although, of course, there is the 2005 Nats SP) that I also find very special and so, if you don't mind, I'll allow myself to add it to the collection Smile :

kawaiimao, I think both Sasha and Yuna can be given the titles "Actresses on Ice!" They both go good jobs trying to portray a character and showing a variety of "expressions" on ice. Surprised

Sasha is my number 3 on the list after Mao and Yuna. But, I think her presence on the ice is still unbeatable. I love this little devil Razz

I love Sasha's nw haircut on her; it makes her look so cute and sweet-looking...Mushy Love

My favorite program of hers is her short program from the '02 olympics. I think that there was something very sincere about her programs back then...as kawaiimao said, she did tend to over-act and force things a bit after that...

I was fourteen at that time, but I very clearly remember that after seeing her programs at nationals that year, I completely switched my allegiance from Michelle Kwan to her...

I agree with Polasatik !
No one has been able to best the presence of Sasha!
She was power incarnated! Almost like a beast! Rockstar
Even Yuna's smooth, silky acts pale in comparison with Sasha's fierce attack of the ice!
You just have to watch her SP Malaguena! She is almost possessed!

I watched the Olympics live - and after her SP - I thought she'll get the gold!
She tends to give some diva fits tho - She was insanely talented but I always read news of how she was difficult to work with...
That might have affected her -_
I'd wish to see her compete again!

On a funny note - I love the Mao-Mai picture you used ElleluvsL!
When was that? An ice show? It seems so funky and unlike Mao lol Very Happy

Embarassed I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I'm not exactly sure when that was...it does seem to be an ice show and she looks a little younger as well...so maybe it was a year or two ago? I hope somebody knows so that they can let me know and I can see it or find it on youtube or somewhere,lol
but I love it too, it's great to see Mao smiling and having fun on the ice Smile

It's from the "Lady Marmelade" pair program (The Ice 2009):

Unfortunately, there's a lot of commentary in this clip and the quality could be better. Sweatdrop I'll check my DVDs, I should have it saved in better quality somewhere...

Thanks for the article. I didn't see that one. I've been checking online from time to time to see if she's officially done... Looks like she is Sad. Not that I'm surprised at all, but I was holding on to a little bit of hope. lol.

thanks very much, Okami, I will check that out Thumbs up!
so that's what song she was skating to...XD

More on Sasha Cohen, being a fan of hers was very emotionally tiring. I would get so excited and happy for her in short programs thinking, "yay, she's finally done it", and then she would throw it all away once the long program came around Mad

With Mao at least, what you see is what you get. You know from the get-go what kind of shape she's in or not. There are few surprises and she never gives up or throws a competition away so easily...even with how this season's GP events went.

Haven't heard any news on Sasha for a while. Here's a new interview with her. I couldn't get the video to work, but luckily the transcript of the whole interview is there too. She talks about her new line of skates (which will be colorful. That will be fun to see), going to business school, and more. She seems to be really into having a new career in the stock market. I guess that means she's done skating Sad ? Apparently she's done with stars on ice, but I hope we will at least see her in some shows here and there.

Surprised to find out that we do have a topic for Sasha! And I just came across with this 3-minute documentary called "Sasha Cohen: on life after figure skating" from ISF magazine online. I thought the documentary is shot so beautiful~~

Nastia Liukin did send a photo card to Sasha, I guess one of the kids is Nastia  Suspect , Sasha is very recognizable. They are friends since they were kids??? it is incredible, two famous and super good athletes, old friends. And Sasha was a really adorable little girl  Swoon

I know they're best friends and often hang out with each other but I don't know that they have been friends since childhood. That's the cutest kid photo I've ever seen. But is the blonde kid Nastia? Sasha is 5 years older than Nastia but those kids in the photo look to be of the same age.
