Of course, that was a huge tragedy, but I don’t think its right to link it to the issue of raising the age limit in women’s skating. That wouldn’t be logical. I agree that girls start to change between 14 and 17 – their bodies transform, they gain weight. That’s why it becomes more difficult to do certain elements. But I don’t understand who will benefit from cutting out 15-year-old girls from senior events? Do we want the level of figure skating to nosedive? If so, let’s raise the age limit to 21, when they are eligible to buy alcohol. This is really absurd,” the retired skater added.

The highly debated matter of raising the age in women’s skating was already discussed by ISU members last year, but the rule remained unchanged, having faced criticism from a great number of Russian pundits, who said the initiative was directed against Russia’s quad-jumping youngsters.
