Alexandra Pauline “Sasha” Cohen was born on October 26, 1984, in Westwood, California. Cohen is a talented U.S. figure skater, and she was the first skater to receive +3s for spirals in the new judging system for ‘Grade of Execution’. She is also know for the difficulty and creativeness of the positions of her spins, such as the “I” spin position which she popularized, which is also sometimes informally referred to as the “Sasha spin.” In 2006 Sasha won her first U.S. Championship, and followed that by placing second at the 2006 Winter Olympics.
