Russian gymnast Viktoria Komova is set to debut her comeback at the Vornin Cup which will be held in December.

Komova aims to compete on all four events at the competition which will be her first since the 2015 World championships where she won gold on uneven bars.

The 22 year old gymnast suffered from immense back pain which forced her to miss not only the 2016 European championships but also the Olympic Games.

The back injury, which she has called her worst, prevented her from going to the gym for eight months which had her believed that her sports career has come to an end.

She returned to the sport once her doctors gave her medical clearance.

The two time Olympic medalist told that she has regained fifty percent of her routines and that she had to make some changes in order to put less pressure on her back.

Teammate and 2017 European floor champion Angelina Melnikova will as well compete at Vornin Cup.
