    Sasha Cohen's "Don't Rain on My Parade" Exhibition

    Sasha Cohen is skating to Barbra Streisand's "Don't Rain on My Parade" from "Funny Girl".

    Guess nobody rained on Sasha's "parade" at Nationals this year.

    It seems that Sasha did not put in any jumps. I think she should. Truely mastering jumps means you can excute the jumps when you are not 100% energetic.

    Sasha was sick all last week, didn't practise at all, and pulled of that program last night. She was probably not well enough to do the jumps that she did last night when it counted. Same can be said for other skaters, mastering jumps means you can excute the jumps when you are not 100%.

    jesslilly, it was an exhibition. Sasha did what she needed....all of the moves that her fans love to see. She looked adorable and gave her fans something to cheer about. It would be crazy to risk doing jumps when she's not feeling well for an exhibition with the Olympics so close. Yikes I'm asking a Sashafan to cut Sasha a break .

    Sasha was not the only one battling cold or flu. Kimmie was sick for the week and she told the Peter or Kirt she still practiced every day. Probably there are few others who got sick but they did not have the opportunity to make announcement about their cold or flu. The pressure of competing for Olympic team, for best finish at nationals, and with people who skate better or same level around you own, can make skaters easily get sick or injuried.

    Well, it was an exhibition performance, not a competition performance. Sasha did the jumps when they counted. We shall see what happens in the weeks ahead.......

    I think the mark of a good skater is if they can captivate you with a jumpless program. She did just that for me yesterday.

    Kimmie also isn't 90 pounds like Sasha either. Sasha looked horrible at Nationals and I've never seen her so painfully thin. When a person trains hard and diets intensively (and I know Sasha is dieting), illness hits them very hard. Combine that with nerves and stress and I can understand her being more affected by the flu than Kimmie.

    Why is she dieting and how do you know this?

    lol, a little OT here.

    Saw two threads running on at the same time.

    Sasha Cohen's "Don't Rain on My Parade" Exhibition.
    Johnny Wier's "My Way" Exhibition.

    I'm tempted to start a thread "Michelle's 'You Raise Me Up' Exhibition"......Just can't resist the thought that seems skaters do chose Exhibition number to tell ppl what's the persona they are.

    Too bad Michelle couldn't skate it at Nationals. I agree with you that skaters seems to chose Exhibition numbers to tell people what's the persona they are. Sasha's Exhibition "Don't Rain on My Parade" was the right one for her. There seems to be a lot of raining on Sasha's parade since she won the Nationals. It has been coming down in buckets. She probablly skated it for that very reason because she knew that people would be pouring their not so nice thoughts on her and nice thoughts on someone else.

    Please. She probably skated to it since she's been using since LAST YEAR and we all know how she likes to keep her programs FOREVER.
