Sasha's Bielmann (and more pics)
This site is locked up better than Fort Knox! Bug-me-not doesn't work. I tried twice. Then, surrendered and registered for a screen name. Boy, I am pissed because now it says I still can't access the site. Bummer.
when I clicked I got to the compuserve site with my aol login name (had no idea aol and compuserve were partners) - I signed in and then got the access denial. too bad.
argh. me too. darn, i wanted to see it.
Very sorry to all.
I will attempt to find the original AP photo tomorrow. (AP archives)
It was said there is other way to get level 4 spin other than Bielmann. I'm wondering why Sasha needs to do this.

Biellmann does NOT = L4 from what I'm seeing, and I wish Sasha would do something else - she's capable of so many other positions.
I cannot find a "free" site which has Sasha's Biellman from the short in France. Sorry to all that could not see this picture.
I think a layback into a faster layback into a Beillmann = L4 spin.
I liked Sasha's Beillmann. I downloaded her SP and LP from SkatingVids. Both very promising programs...and her Beillmann isn't nearly so slow as it was at Campbells, and she gets into a very nice position.
I can login to the site successfully (I have an AOL account) but then I get "internal error". Oh well.
