TURIN, Italy - Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen plans to skate in next month’s world championships, along with U.S. teammates Kimmie Meissner and Emily Hughes.
Cohen, who won her first U.S. title this year and is a two-time world silver medalist, will face Olympic champion Shizuka Arakawa of Japan at worlds in Calgary from March 20-26.
Asked Friday where she goes from here, Cohen said: “To the world championships in Calgary. To keep improving, see where I can go. Take it day by day and see where the road goes.”
Cohen, 21, has not committed to further competition beyond Calgary. Both Meissner, who finished sixth in Turin, and Hughes, who was seventh, plan to remain eligible, their sights set on the 2010 Vancouver Games.
