Sasha Cohen - An Olympian You Should Know

Posted By Blackfive • [February 18, 2006]

You may or may not (I'm betting most of you fighting men do not)  know about American figure skater, Sasha Cohen.  She placed fourth in the last Winter Olympics, first in the last US Nationals and second in the last World Championships.

Obviously, she's a talented lady and great American skater.

But did you know that she adopted a soldier via Soldiers' Angels?  And considers Soldiers' Angels one of her favorite charities?

That's why you get a special shout out to watch Sasha Cohen skate on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.  Of course, we want her to win because she's an American, but she's also very concerned about supporting our troops.

So let's send her some support.

Go Sasha!
