Going for Gold!

Meet eight leading female figure skaters, including Americans Sasha Cohen, Emily Hughes and Kimmie Meissner, as they compete for Olympic glory. By Caryn Midler

SASHA COHEN

Country: USA
Age: 21
Where she ranks: No. 1 in the U.S.; No. 2 in the world
Why we'll watch: She's got the look. The 95-lb. California native helped design her Gypsy-style outfit for her short program and a gold number for the long. "I want a dress that makes me feel special and absolutely gorgeous," says Cohen. Snowboarder Shaun White already has his eye on her. "I'm hoping Sasha Cohen digs gold medalists," he told NBC.
