When Sasha was 6, Michelle was, what, 10, 11? Was Michelle already famous at 10? Michelle was "there" in the sense that she was alive and learning to skate, but was she somebody Sasha would have known about? She wasn't even with Frank then, was she?
Yes, she could have very well known of Michelle and her skating before Michelle even made it out of a local club competition. They're both from Southern California-right? And lot of the skaters-even at the lower levels-juvenile etc know of other skaters from the regions from hearing about them from other club parents/skaters or from seeing them at local competitions.
