From the NY Times:
"Alissa Czisny, 22, the reigning national [women's figure skating] champion, said that [Sasha] Cohen’s effort was admirable but that her task was not an easy one.
'For me, it would be difficult to come back after four years,' Czisny said. 'I take the spring and summer off, and I have to get back into the competition mode. To take four years off and then come back is pretty impressive.'"
I'm picking Sasha Cohen over Alissa Czisny -- and I'd do so even if Ms. Cohen had been on crutches the better part of these past four years...that's how doubtful I am of our current national champion.
