Thank you mathman, drivingmissdaidy and sliverlake for attempting to bring some sanity back. These accusations of age falsifications are sounding WAY too much like the 2008 Olympics. Accusing the home team that's loaded with talent of cheating. Julia packages herself appropriately which is refreshing to see. No need to overdo it at that age.
Back on topic here!! Liza isn't over yet, as said skaters HAVE peaked in their 20s. One example of a skater who struggled after growing then came back stronger, Irina Slutskaya. Liza may do that.
Looks like some people have figured out how to overdose on cheesy Angelina Jolie thrillers.

Not to mention, Russia has public webside with competitive results and dates of birth of all their elite skaters. Anyone can check that out, and for the last few years I have been doing it (and I think thousands of other people too). So if anyone wanted to falsificate Russian skaters ages, they would have to start when the skaters is perhaps 7-8 years old, because as soon as they start showing any promise (even if they are still in novice category) their date of birth is already in public domain. Therefore, the Russians would have to falsificate the dates of birth of everyone, because they wouldn't know who will make it and who won't. For example, there are included skaters who are 9-10 years old.
If you click on any letter from the alphabet, you will get a list of skaters starting with that letter. Then you click on that name and get their date of birth, name of coach, competitive results etc.
