Ever heard of a kid by the name of Alysa Liu? Neither had we, until this week! At age 13, Alysa just became the youngest women’s champion skater in U.S. history, erasing the record previously held by Tara Lipinski, who was 14 when she won the national title back in 1997. Too young to compete internationally on the senior level, the pint-sized Liu will be 16 and well within eligibility for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. She’ll be one to watch, particularly since the U.S. hasn’t won an Olympic medal for women’s figure skating since 2006.
