Most of his family are quite 'short' by North American standards but it is perfectly normal for them. I think height also has something to do with culture. I believe Northern Europeans tend to be taller than most, especially Nordics, Asians and Latins tend to the shorter end.

    I've seen Sasha, her mom, and her sister. They all have the same height with the same small-boned build. Not everyone is going to be buxom or have breasts. Some women are just plain flat chested with no hips. Like myself, my sisters, and my sister-in-law. We're certain no Amazons-I wish!

At the same time, she ate very, very normally. I would bet Sasha's build is more a combo of genetics and really pushing herself in an Olympic year. If she were anorexic, she'd have a hard time finding the energy to skate like she does.
    Kristi Yamaguchi still has a slim, petite build. Again, I think it's just genetics.

    There have been rink rumors that Sasha has an eating problem, and that TT left her because of it. TT doesn't back people that have "issues." These were rink rumors, so who knows?

    It was also rumored once that the earth was flat and the moon was made out of green cheese.

If Sasha builds more muscles or weight, she may lose some of the advantages in her skating.

    JMHO.

    I agree, Sahsa has a tiny frame -she is extremely petite. I am also about the same size (in height) and putting on 5 pounds people notice and start telling me that I gained weight -when you don't have height you have no-where to hide the fat. But also, fat comes off very easily for me if I am excersizing regularly - so Sasha working out and training constantly, her body fat % has got to be extremely low - not great if she is trying to conceive children,but fine for an athlete, she seems to have a lot of muscle tone and her face still has a healthy full look about it (no sunken cheeks there) so I think she looks perfectly healthy.

    In the interview at the gelato shoppe Katie Couric asked Sasha "Do you ever have to watch what you eat?" SC replied "Yea, I kind of have my arrangment, my pyramid, always big room for dessert."
