Cohen was formerly married to hedge fund manager Tom May, but the two split last year. She married May in August of 2016.

The figure skater, who took home a silver medal in the ladies’ singles competition at the 2006 Olympics, went through other changes besides divorce after her Olympic career ended. Cohen didn’t qualify for the 2010 Olympics after suffering tendinitis in her calf.

“I’ve asked myself a lot of questions and have done some deep work philosophically speaking, and I’ve found I’m the most happy when I have a sense of purpose,” Cohen told People back in 2016. “My goal now is to establish a second career where I feel engaged and where I’m adding value.”
