A silver medalist in Torino, Sasha has long been considered one of the world's most gifted skaters. With her trademark flexibility and grace, her positions are nearly flawless. Sasha was considered the favorite for gold in Torino but had a disastrous long program. Sasha will need to outdo herself technically in order to compete with younger skaters and will need to find the consistency that has eluded her. After a three year hiatus from international competition, Sasha's long anticipated comeback is one many hope will end on the top of the podium in Vancouver.
