Former Olympic Medalist Returning to Competition

By  | 

Sasha Cohen feels she can be even better than when she won the
Olympic silver medal in 2006. The figure skater also knows she'd
regret it if she didn't try for the Vancouver Games.

Cohen announced this week she was returning to competition in hopes of making her third straight Olympic team.

She hasn't competed since the end of the 2006 season, but she's stayed in shape through touring and says her jumps have come back quickly. She's even close to doing triple-triple combinations.

Cohen plans to take two weeks off after Stars on Ice ends its Canadian tour next week because of tendinitis in her ankle. Then she'll resume training in Lake Arrowhead, Calif.
