Russian just has so many talented girls and I want to know and follow their progress from a very young age. Thanks again

At last five season we see that girls learn complicated elements in younger age.
At Zhuk-2009 (younger age) first was Elena Radionova (now 2-times World Junior Champion) with only one triple (fall in SP, landed in FS).
2nd (Pogorilaya, now 4th at Worlds) and 3rd (Shershak, at 2011 silver medalist of JGP Event) had no triples.
At Zhuk-2009 (younger age) "girl landing 2A" meant high level. Girl landing 2A was 6th Julia Lipnitskaia (now olympic gold medalist and 2nd at Worlds).
Now top-8 have at least two triples.
