This reply below originally was posted in the SOI thread in GSD:Comment From Louise: Will you be adding jumps back into your show programs? I've noticed that some of the other women who are a few years from their competitive years aren't doing jumps either. Is it to avoid the risk of injury?
Sasha Cohen: For me, it was because I broke my hip. It took away a lot of balance and stability that I had. I had to limit my skating so I could continue to skate. I definitely miss the jumps. But as you get older, injuries are more frequent. And you're not quite that 13-year-old you used to be. I don't know -- I do work on jumps in practice. But, at this point, I'm not as comfortable with doing them in shows. A lot of my joy from skating is not necessarily in jumps.
