Sasha Cohen is without a doubt one of the most talented of all figure skaters. This is because she has managed to win not only three World Championship medals for herself, but she also won a silver medal in the 2006 Olympic games. The three World Championship medals that she won, did come from the 2003 Grand Prix Final Champion and the 2006 US Champion.
Sasha Cohen started out very early in life doing gymnastics first. However, she decided to switch to another passion at the age of seven, and this passion was for figure skating. Despite the fact that she did do figure skating very young, she really didn't start to take it very seriously, as a sport until she was 11 years old. She did first rise to prominence in the eyes of the figure skating community for the US Championships that were held in 2000.
She did win a silver medal in competition for the Winter Olympic Games in 2006 in Turin, but she took some time away from competition after that, because she just needed some personal down time for a while. Sasha Cohen did plan to return to competition at the Winter Olympics Games in 2010, but she couldn't, and this was due to the fact that she has sustained injury to her calf. However, on January 21, 2010, she did compete for the very first time in four years, and this was at the US Championships in Spokane, Washington. She ended up finishing fourth in the championship due to having a fall during a triple flip while in competition.
Sasha Cohen is a very unique and wonderful figure skater. Not only did she make the i-spin position very popular, which is also called the Sasha Spin. She is also the only figure skater to get perfect +3s for spirals that are defined under the IJS grade for execution. Cohen has participated in the Stars On Ice for many years now. She has also starred in the Art On Ice show in 2010 along with Stephane Lambiel. She has also done some acting with some television commercials and so forth. In 2013, she did participate in an edition of “Tornado Week” on the Weather Channel.
