A Video To Remember
This is a video of the Stars on Ice warmup in Orlando, Florida. It really shows you how different skaters train, notably Evan and Sasha. Notice that Evan has always been known for being a jumping fiend and a workhorse. He trains most of his jumping passes in this video and even pulls off a Triple Flip+Triple Toe and a Triple Axel, neither of which he performs in the show.
Sasha Cohen is seen opening up on a double axel and spends the rest of the time focusing on spins. Those who have seen Sasha train in the past always commented that she spends a lot of time on the areas she is good at, like spirals and spins. Though Sasha may have told us, "if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten," she herself doesn't look like she's caught on to the meaning of the mantra. This is where going to college could help.
