Sochi Olympics Figure Skating
When you think of the Olympics, you automatically think of the amazing athletes who have been training their whole lives in order to compete! But did you know that the Olympic age requirements allow teens as young as 14 to participate? For instance, the bobsled minimum age is 14, figure skating is 15 and luge is 16!

For the 2014 Winter Olympics, the youngest athletes span between the ages of 14 and 17. Many of these athletes were introduced to their sport when they were as young as four.

It's amazing what these young teens have accomplished in their life so far and even more amazing that they can add Sochi to that growing list.

Take a look at our gallery of the youngest athletes from around the world who are competing at Sochi!
