After the London Olympics, Russia's Viktoria Komova suffered from a series of injuries and illness which put her career on hold for three years. Glasgow was her first World championships in four years.

So how did she do in Glasgow!


At Qualifications, she competed on vault, bars and balance beam.

























She qualified second on bars





















 and fourth on beam























She had the second highest score on vault among the Russians in team final, 15.100
























But had unexpected fall on bars



























And another fall on beam
























Komova had two of the four falls, the Russian had in team final. As a result of these falls, the  team lost the bronze medal. 


After team final, she took to VK to express her frustration where she accused the Americans gymnasts of taking steroids and claimed that China and Great Britain only won second and third place due to luck 












After receiving backlash, she apologized  

















But felt it was not enough, so she went to Aly Raisman's instagram and posted another apology using google translation





































And not just that, she went to the American gymnasts during training and gave them a personal apology












She was one of the four gymnasts who tied for gold on uneven bars which was the first time in a major international competition






















She had this priceless reaction when she learned that she is not the only one who placed first.



























She crazily amazingly saved a fall during balance beam final which she hasn't done since forever 






















And beautifully nailed her acrobatic beam series
























She acted like a big sister to teammate and new senior Seda Tutkhalyan who had a fall on beam during event final
