Russian gymnast Aliya Mustafina has released her very first training footage of her comeback.

The video, which is sped up, shows Mustafina taking baby steps on the uneven bars with the help of coach Evgeny Grebenkin.

She captioned the video "My favorite bars, one year later".

The double Olympic champion has started her comeback journey earlier this month after three months of giving birth to her daughter Alisa.

Aliya is set to debut her competition comeback at next year's European championships which will be held in August. However, National head coach Valentina Rodionenko said that her comeback might move forward and be debuted at the Russian championships in April.
