Sasha Cohen Biography - Teen Skate Queen

Sasha Cohen was born on October 26, 1984 in Westwood, California. She started figure skating when she was seven and entered her first skating competition at the age of 10. By the time she was 15, Cohen was already causing jaws to drop in the skating world with her combination of athleticism, elegance and showmanship. At the 2000 US Figure Skating Championships, Cohen finished a surprising 2nd to Michelle Kwan, and the world began to take notice of the pint-sized (just 79 pounds at the time) American teen skate queen. After missing a year of skating due to a back injury, Cohen returned to the world figure skating stage at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, where she finished fourth.

Sasha Cohen Biography - Not Yet Golden

While her grace, good looks and charming personality have made her one of the world's most popular figure skaters, the big knock on Sasha Cohen has been her failure to win a gold medal at big events. Cohen finished second at the World Figure Skating Championships in 2004 and 2005 and won a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, despite leading the event after the short program. At the 2006 World Figure Skating Championships in Calgary, Cohen was again upstaged by fellow American, Kimmie Meissner, who won the gold, while Sasha settled for the bronze. For the 2006-07 figure skating season, Cohen plans to skate in fewer events, so she can concentrate on acting. She does plan on competing at both the 2007 US Figure Skating Championships and the 2007 World Championships.
