    Do you spend as much time concerning yourself with the Japanese Ladies obsessing over their body types?

    I’m sure the Satoko fans would love you for it

    But yeah, as lappo said, it might be due to intense training.
    You get that there's a very wide range in terms of how people develop, right? I went back and looked at pictures of myself at 13. I was just as a little and skinny as Sasha is. Maybe a touch taller. I wasn't doing any intense training and I ate whatever I wanted all the time. That was just natural for me. And I had a couple of friends who had very similar body types. Of course the intense training might contribute, but I don't think you can assume that her body type isn't natural for her right now. I wouldn't automatically go "she seems young" if I saw her in a middle school. What age teenagers look compared to what age they actually are can vary a lot.

    13 years old is the age where some girls have grown a lot, some are in the process, and some will start later. Especially for athletes at this high level, the tendency will be for them to grow slightly later (obviously genetics pay a larger role). Meaning that what people look like with vary widely. Perhaps Trusova is just a person that grows a bit later or has a smaller body type. 148cm isn't even that short for a 13 year old.

    While you may have been 167cm at 13yo, I will never in my life be that tall. That may be normal for you, but not everyone is you, so their normals will be different. If you were approx 153cm at 13yo, that would have been concerning for you. But that was my height at the time and there was no concern for me. In my dance class of the past several years, I'm visibly shorter and have a body type that looks less adult-like than my peers despite being one of the earlier ones to grow (we are all ancestrally from approx the same area). That doesn't make me look significantly younger than my peers or unnaturally small/young; I just have a different body type and am a shorter person (due to genes etc.), but that does not make me developmentally inferior.

    That's not the case. People have a wide variety of body types and there can be large individual differences between 13-year-olds, but they still certainly look 13. Just like Trusova definitely looks like she's 13 years old to me.

    By what you're saying, you'd think she was 17 or something.

    If you use yourself as an example "who were 167cm" that's not the case for everyone. There are girls whose adult height is 150cm. There are ectomorphs. People are different.

    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.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_W..._Championships

    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.
