    Sasha Cohen quote in IFS

    On page 54 there is a quote:

    "Even though two of major goals I didn't meet -- in terms of placement and performance -- this season has taught me to look at my skating instead of looking at the competition and what other people are doing. I've learned to focus on just enjoying myself out there, not even worrying about having to skate perfect. I'm taking it one step at a time."

    I really think if she is able to apply this philosophy we will see some interesting things this season.

    The same philosophy has been working for Michelle, why not for Sasha, too? This may be the year she will put it all together and enjoy her skating. She has nothing to lose but much to win.

    I have a feeling that she may get it together. I just don't know what placement yet. When people count ya out (and people are counting Sasha out) then that's when they show ya. I still don't know if she will be known for consistency but I think she works too hard for it not to happen some day.

    I love Sasha's skating, and would be thrilled if she did pull it together, but I am not sure that saying the right things actually translates into on-the-ice results.

    ITA, I am concerned about her consistency as well. It's very frustrating when nerves get the best of a skater.

    Sasha's interviews are beginning to sound like any generic skater next rink.

    Sasha Cohen quote in IFS

    People often learn from their mistakes, and I am sure Sasha has had lots of time to reflect on where she went wrong. Let's hope she really applies this new outlook to her skating. She is a lovely skater and inspiring to watch. I wish her the best this season.

    I think she means it. Sasha has invested too much in this sport to throw it all away with nerves. Besides, she's at that age when what others do doesn't matter so much and you start to stand back and take a good look at why you're doing what you're doing in life. Hope it works for her.

    I agree with those who think Sasha will be able to put this philosophy to use next season. I think her remark shows maturity - she's only a few months older than me, and I can't imagine going out there and skating under so much pressure and scrutiny. I think if she really does slow down a bit and take it one step at a time, she'll be more incredible than she already is (can you tell I'm a big Sasha fan? lol).

    Sasha's skating isn't my favorite... but I wish all the best for her. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see her skate up to her potential?
