Daria, Anna P., and even Alina Z. are closer representatives of how girls normally go through puberty. None of them were totally pubescent at 13.5 years old like Trusova.



    Trusova doesn't "look her age". She looks 12 at most. And it's not "early development" - I think starting puberty and having a growth spurt at 13 is quite common fo girls - as you said yourself! It is also when many girls go through growth spurts (that is the biggest reason I'd pass for an older teen at that age - height makes a big difference tbh - you can't honestly look at a 148cm girl and automatically think she is 13+ years old).

    But yeah, as lappo said, it might be due to intense training.
    Well, I'm 1/4 Russian and 3/4 Asian but I live in Canada and I went through puberty earlier. But my parents (Asian) and my grandmother (Russian) went through puberty way later, at around 15, and looked like a kid up until then like Sasha. So I don't understand the "LOL" I don't see anything funny. The fact is that there are a wide variety of factors that play into when someone goes through puberty, and people do at different ages. There's nothing strange about a 13 year old still looking like a child. Please become more informed before you ridicule someone else's comments.

    I haven't read anything but I must say I was really thrilled with Trusova's landing on her two quads! She is a little firecracker that can shake off the current ladies' field if she keeps going on with the tech. She lacks presentation and refinement yet, but is still 13 years old, so it would be a great pleasure for me to have witnessed her growth as a skater.

    I was also impressed by Yamashita and Lim in the FS while Kostornaia was the most impressive skater in the SP. Congrats to all the medalists!

    I wonder how USA/Canada and Europe coaches will explain their inability to teach their students triple jumps?
    The arrogance..... But i wonder, how Eteri will explain her inability to teach her students to be well rounded skaters with LONG CAREERS. Maybe she should ask the USA/Canada and Europe coaches how to do it.

    The circumstances are quite different.

    If even someone like Sakhanovich was skating for a country like Italy, I'm sure she could have a very lengthy, formidable career as she would have no pressure to get replaced and could deal with her issues in peace.

    In Russia, there's 2-3 superior skaters moving up to seniors almost every season. This means that these will just replace the older skaters. After that point, the older skaters will probably feel like they can no longer catch up and that it's not a smart decision to continue putting everything into the skating career, when it's not certain whether something will come out of it. On the other hand, if such a skater was skating for Italy for instance, they could be confident that they would be able to sustain themselves and continue competing internationally until the end of time, essentially.

    You look at the consistency of the jumps of someone like Carolina Kostner. How long do you think she would last in Russia? She probably would never even have made the senior circuits and would have retired well before the age of 20.

    Is right to say that everything becoming difficult for the russian ladies when they starting to make too much mistake and the fed don't support them like before, but don't exaggerate.

    We can better compare Carolina with Pogorilaya. Both lacking of consistency, similar style and structure, but in their first years of career have take a Bronze at Junior Worlds and a Bronze at Senior Worlds. Anna have win some european medals and is now injured, while Caro have wait until the twenty to win the European title. At now, Anna in good condition could still be the 3rd force on Russia, this year and the next, but what happen to her is not because of the Russian situation.
