For example, St. Alexander won the battle of the Neva when he was 19. St. Athanasius wrote On the Incarnation at 19.

What other saints have done impressive feats around this age?

Do spectacular confessions of faith, with or without miracles, but concluded with martyrdom anyway, count?

I reckon so.
Then it's going to be a long list.

St. John was pretty young when he met the Lord, wasn't he? Although John was the only Apostle who wasn't martyred, and wound up living to a ripe old age. If memory serves me.  :angel:

Wasn't St. John the Theologian only 12 when Our Lord called him?

And the child who was held in Christ's arms was St. Ignatius whom St. John the Theologian mentored.

However, St. John the Forerunner was still in his mother's womb, when he met the Lord and leapt for joy.
