    Yes, thanks for posting. While I am more familiar with the 4 athletes who are pictured in the linked article (especially of course, Hughes, Cohen and Lipinski), I am not at all familiar with Jeremy Bloom. His outlook, philosophy and off-ice contributions are impressive:

    I also was not aware that Cohen is attending Columbia University and that Sarah is writing a book. I think Tara is a very good figure skating commentator, but Sarah really needs to work on her voice/ delivery/ timing. Perhaps Sarah's writing voice will be more engaging?

    Thanks for the link! I really liked Kristine's skating. Glad she's doing well in school & enjoying a more normal schedule.

    Thanks, skatesindreams! I never saw this article before and just tweeted the link out. I will re-post the link in the US Ladies thread as well.

    You're very welcome!
    I'd not seen it either, until I searched for other mentions of Sasha at Columbia.

    Thanks again. Is it just my imagination, or, are record numbers of Oly skaters attending college either during or after their competitive careers?

    Jeremy is a remarkable athlete. In addition to being an Olympic champ in freestyle moguls skiing, he played college football at Univ of Colorado. He challenged NCAA eligibility rules when they argued that his ski money made him ineligible for football. He lost his NCAA challenge, but went on to play in the NFL for a year or two before becoming a succesful businesman and named as one of Forbes 30 under 30 list for people successful people in the technology field. And back in his skiing days, he also did some modeling.

    Cute article.

    It was weird seeing Tara's age listed as 30, Sasha as 29, and Sarah as 27.

    Where has time gone??

    Tara does NOT look anywhere near 30!

    Sasha isn't 29. She was born October 26, 1984.

    Thanks for posting the article, it was a nice read! Nice to hear from Joey Cheek also, he is awesome!

    Thanks for posting! Yeah, it's weird that Tara is now 30, seems like she was just a teenager!
