Sasha withdraws from Skate America
Sasha announced Monday that she will not compete at the Skate America because of an injury.
“I have been battling this injury for a while,” Cohen said. “After meeting with my orthopedic surgeon, it was determined that in order for me to fully recover, I should not compete this week.”
Cohen withdrew from her first Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series assignment, Trophée Eric Bompard, in early October after being diagnosed with tendonitis in her right calf.
“I'm very disappointed I won't be able to compete in Lake Placid,” Cohen said. “I've been going to physical therapy and training with every intention of being healthy and ready for this competition.”
Cohen says she will continue her physical therapy and training, with the goal of competing at the 2010 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Spokane, Wash, Jan. 14-24.
