Mustafina with her husband
First time mother Aliya Mustafina is fully enjoying her motherhood experience for the time being and that's it.

The Russian gymnast is not thinking about coming back to the gym and start training this season.

"The upcoming Worlds will, of course, take place without me" Aliya said in a statement to which was translated by gymnovosti. " At that time I won’t even start trying to recover. Right now I have no plans to come back to training this season, I don’t have time for training."

"I have other things on my mind, my baby daughter is home. I devote myself to her and my family. We’ll see what’s next.”

The Olympic champion said that she is dedicating all her time to her daughter. However, she is still keeping in touch with the national team and that until recently she often visits round lake.

"I’m still a part of the team."

"Right now all my plans are focused on my family."

Mustafina gave birth to a daughter, whom she named Alisa, with husband and bobsleigh champion Alexey Zaitsev last month.
