    Question about Sarah vs. Sasha

    I see comments on other boards that make me go: AHHHHHHHHHHHH!! So I just need to know. Has a clean Sasha ever defeated a clean Sarah?
    I remember '00 Nationals. Sasha won silver on a 3/4 split over Sarah. I always thought Sarah deserved that win. My memory isn't clear. Did Sarah skate clean?
    I also thought Sarah should've had silver at Nationals '02.
    We all know the results of National '03 (SARAH,SARAH, SARAH). But does anyone remember if a clean Sarah was ever beaten by Cohen?
    Thanks so much!

    Sarah.....'04 Nationals Champion, I hope.

    I don't think that the two have competed against each other that much. One would have to look at SPs (SLC SP for example) to find Sasah besting a clean Sarah, IIRC.

    FYI, Sarah fell on the closing 3 Sal at 00 Nats and poped the loop on the earlier 3toe/3loop combo.

    Personally, I don't think it matters much at all. Skating clean is part of competing. One has no way of knowing who would have finished ahead if both had skated clean. They didn't, and it finished like it did.

    I kinda remember them as alernating one over the other. And for the 2002 Olys, Sarah won over everyone!

    I thought Sasha had a clear win over Sarah in 2002. Sasha skated with much more conviction, and has better jump technique, spins, and overall presentation.

    That's a residue of the SashaHype that particularly annoys me. Prior to last season, I once figured out how many times they were at the same competition, and Sarah finished ahead the vast majority of the time. This goes back to GP events in the fall of 00. In fact, IIRC Sarah has finished ahead at every GP event they were in. (And of course, she medaled twice at the GPF -against competition the likes of MK and Irina - before Sasha ever even qualified for that.)

    Another example of the misremembering - several times in recent months, I've seen people comment on Sasha's 2nd place finish to Michelle at *03* Nats!!! (Erm, then I wonder why Sarah has the silver medal at her house.)

    NorthernLite, the funniest one was when Tatiana Tarasova made that mistake in a well-publicized interview after 2003 Nationals.

    Jump technique, yes- don't know about the spins r the overall presentation. Extension is only one part of the pres mark. And not to mention Sarah had a much better LP choreography (more intricate, spread-out elements, more coherent) and basic skating.

    Smiley - I believe the thread is about the number of times one placed higher than the other.

    I do not think it was a discussion about who has more and better technical elements. That discussion could run pages and pages of what's in the eye of the beholder.

    It could only get pages and pages long if people get as snarky as you were to me.

    Smiley - Apology is in order. I did not intend to be snarky to you. I was just pointing out the topic of the thread, and without realizing it, I was probably doing it in a snarky way:o

    BTW, what does snarky mean?

    Think of Snarky as a synonym for snide, which I didn't think you were being....

    I think snarky is one of those recent combined words...kinda like fugly.
    I like the way it feels when you say it... like tiramisu and newt.
