Russian gymnast Angelina Melnikova has accidentally liked an Instagram post that says her teammate Maria Paseka was overscored on vault at Montreal's event final.

"Maria Paseka was so overscored in vaults finals especially in her first vault," the post says. 

It is widely believed that Melnikova does not speak English hence 'no throwing shade intended'.

In Montreal, Paseka successfully defended her World title on vault. Along with Canada's Shallon Olsen, the Russian gymnast had the most difficult vaults in the competition.

She performed Cheng (6.0) and Amanar (5.8). Paseka has always been criticized for her form on her vault, however, she recently said in an interview that she will work on having it improved.

Melnikova took part in Montreal where she finished in 16th place in the all around.
