Aliya Mustafina, one of Russia's most decorated gymnasts, has officially announced her retirement from gymnastics. Her announcement took place at the 2021 Russian cup.

The 26 year old retired gymnast is now working as the head coach of the junior national team.

Mustafina is considered one of the most successful female artistic gymnasts of all time. She is two-time Olympic gold medalist on uneven bars, two time Olympic all around medalist, and an all around World and European champion. She is also among a handful of gymnasts who have returned to the sport after having a child.

Mustafina, who turned senior in 2010, last competed at the Birmingham World Cup in 2019, where she won gold in the all around.
