12/13 year olds aren't allowed to skate at Russian Senior Nationals anymore (not sure if you were referring to Russia as your post is somewhat confusing regarding this issue). Even in the US where they are allowed to (at least as of last season), it's not like it was common for them to win. I think once the age rules were upped for good in the late 90s/early 00s, only Nagasu and Liu have won Nationals being age ineligible to compete senior. It was far more common in Russia, though, which is what prompted them to change the rule I believe.I think its wrong that 12/13 year olds, who are to young for seniors can still do nationals. In tennis we have age rules and that is a good thing but here everybody is ignore the age rules. 12 year olds can do nationals and we see them all the time. Its better to wait till the kids are older and have their puberty behind them before they are burnout at 16. Too young too soon. A 12 year old can jump so easily. But can they do the same when they are 17/18? That men from the tweet who is commentator said that those 2 Russian girls are superior on everything. I think this is way to much pressure for this little kids. I always hate to see so much pressure on prodigy s in all kind of sports.
