    I have this strange feeling that this was published like a year ago. Anyone else?

    Seeing that she just started at Columbia, I don't see how.

    No, this looks to be a current article. Have to laugh though, why an article on Cohen by Kelly Whiteside? Nothing else going on in Omaha this past week? ;-)

    I really hope she doesn't play rugby. She will get trampled like a hapless tourist in Pamplona.

    The name "Alex", yes. IIRC, someone mentioned this version of name in an another article about a year ago.

    However, the USA Today article also says that she is now sophomore, which makes this article contemporary.

    I'm sure she was joking. At 2010 Natls, she could not have weighed more than 85 lbs soaking wet. She might be up to 100 lbs now. I'm sure she said it to provoke a response. ;-)

    I read that she had changed her name and was playing rugby about a year ago in an article on Icenetwork. Old news.

    Believe it or not, just recently I think I saw Sasha Cohen (now Alex) at the Highway Diner in East Hampton, New York. I live in the area and was surprised to see her. At first, she walked by my table of five (my spouse and three kids) and with the cold weather and all, I could still see it was Sasha under the coat, hat and scarf but I was not sure whether it was truly her. Later, I went to the rest room which gave me a few more opps to steal a couple of glances and a good stare (I swear, she did not notice). I walked away convinced it was her. She was there with another person; they held hands. I did not bother her because as a native New Yorker, you just don't do that to celebrities plus, I get the feeling with her new direction and all, that she probably wants to start anew and wasn't sure she would have wanted a figure skating fan gushing about her skating skills and accomplishments - so I left, disappointed.

    I'm surprised she's not recognized more often, but I guess not too many people follow figure skating as closely as I do.

    There were probably other articles about Sasha when she started Columbia. IMO, she is showing her brains by preparing for a life off of the ice; there aren't enough shows to keep her employed for any length of time.

    Kwan managed to make it through college and get a Masters degree without having to use an alias. She even attended college while at her peak as a competitor. Kwan wins again.

    One of the reasons Sasha became Alex is that when she'd call to make reservations in NYC or LA, the person on the other end would think she was calling for Sacha Baron Cohen.

    Kwan wasn't trying to become a serious student at an Ivy League school. Apparently she was denied admission to several.

    I'm just glad Sasha's acting career is over. LOL!
