Future double world champion Evgenia Medvedeva started that run in 2014 and she was followed by Polina Tsurskaya, PyeongChang 2018 gold medallist Alina Zagitova, Trusova and Kostornaia.
This season's Junior Grand Prix has been cancelled due to the Covid pandemic, but Akatyeva looks to be another future champion and could give Valieva plenty to think about when she defends her world junior title in Harbin, China in March.
In Kazan, she started her free skate with a fine quad toe loop-double toe loop combination before landing another quad toe loop on its own.
Then came a slightly shaky triple Axel and a triple toe loop before a fall on a triple Lutz.
Despite her stamina appearing to ebb away, she still managed to land triple flip-Euler-triple Salchow and triple Lutz-double toe loop combinations in an eye-catching routine.
In the short program, where quad jumps are not permitted, she landed a triple Axel-triple flip combination on her way to a score of 80.12 which would have put her top in the senior competition.
This was Akatyeva's second triumph in this season's Cup of Russia having claimed victory in Stage 1 in Syzran in September.
Behind her was 12-year-old sensation Veronika Zhilina who landed a quad toe loop-double toe loop combination on her way to second place.
Finding form after quarantine Speaking to Russian news agency Tass two weeks ago, Akatyeva revealed that she spent most of her time "engaged in choreography and general physical training" during two and a half months in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But things came together when she went to the national team camp in Novogorsk where the country's top rhythmic gymnasts, including twins Dina and Arina Averina, were also in training.
She said, "It all gradually came into shape. It's good that everything worked out - for this, by the way, many thanks to our coaching staff. In isolation, I mainly studied, I had tutors. Well, I really like to dance - I improvised to the music."
In that interview, she said she wanted to land two quad toe loops and a triple Axel in a free program which she achieved in Kazan.
So what else does the latest Russian starlet have in store?
"I also want to learn the quadruple Salchow. In training, I already go into it. I hope that at the end of the season I will succeed in competitions."
Akatyeva made headlines as an 11-year-old in March 2019 when she landed a quad jump in training.
She started figure skating from an early age and soon joined up with Tutberidze's powerhouse unit in the Khrustalny rink in Moscow.
"Everyone in my family loves figure skating! We watch all the broadcasts of the competition. It was my mother who showed me the performances of the skaters at the Olympic Games on TV.
"I didn't know any names then - I was too small. But what I saw on the screen just mesmerised me. I wanted to become a part of this fabulous world. Then I, of course, rewatched Vancouver. Mostly girls - Asada Mao and others.'"
Inspired by Asada and training partners past and present, Akatyeva is certainly one to watch this season and in the future.
