She's been skating for quite a few years now. She and her parents know the age rules. I doubt she'd be crushed, as it is not at all a surprise for her and parents. Knowing the age situation they are continuing full speed ahead, so they must have made all the calculations and plans.Actually I wasn't thinking about Akatieva and 2022, I was just worrying that she was going to be cursed by not getting to compete in juniors (and later seniors) when she's obviously ready. But even in this company (your list) she seems special. JMO.
