    Sasha Cohen video chat on Olympic Village fun, socks, and college life

    (Mods, feel free to move this thread to the Trash Can if warranted.)

    http://olympictalk.nbcsports.com/201...igure-skating/
    Olympic silver medalist figure skater Sasha Cohen stopped by SB Nation for a 30-minute video chat published Friday. There was plenty to talk about.

    Cohen, 28, discussed taking Russian at Columbia University, her Pomeranian, Pippa, and her business ventures, including Snoxx and Thuzio.

    She also dished on skating. Topics ranged from “Blades of Glory” to tour life and even mentions of Tonya Harding and Midori Ito.
    Video is here: http://www.sbnation.com/2013/7/12/45...ife-halfy-hour

    ETA that if anyone missed watching the artistic short film about her that was posted back in April, link is: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...tic-short-film

    That was very enjoyable. I wish they let her go further with some of the questions.

    I ordered a pair of Snoxx from Sasha. Can't wait to get them!

    Surprised about the Philosophy major.

    All the snoxx are sold out.

    What a delightful interview. Sasha seems so content and relaxed, and looks like she's really loving life.

    I agree, I was so sure I wouldn't listen to the entire 32-minute interview, but Sasha is such a great interviewee (that word looks weird in print...), which is so rare for a figure skater. Loved it!

    I want some Snoxx! I can't believe she is 28. I've been her fan since she was 17. Where did the time go???

    From the Snoxx website:

    She is an icon of her sport but also holds worldwide influence in other realms including fashion and nutrition

    haha. I love Sasha, but she isn't renowned for her great fashion choices.

    Have no fear, Snoxx Fans. They will be available for retail in the near future. Getting funding for production was the purpose for her Kickstarter venture. The Snoxx were available in limited quantities as a preview on Kickstarter but soon they will be available to everyone.

    Always nice to see skaters transition to something that they enjoy and is a challenge. I commend her for continuing her education and following her interests in fashion and business.

    Awwww! Loved it! That’s the most natural and comfortable – and funny! – I remember seeing her. She also seems very happy
