American former gymnast, Aly Raisman, paid tribute to her former competitor Russia's Aliya Mustafina on her retirement.

Raisman posted a video on her Instagram of herself hugging Mustafina during London's floor exercise final captioning it "Congrats @musaliya135 on an amazing career. Your gymnastics will always inspire me! I wish you all of the best in your next chapter 😊", to which Mustafina replied to with "@alyraisman thank you ♥️ and I miss you."



Both gymnasts competed at the 2010 World championships, and the 2012 London and 2016 Rio de Janiero Olympics.

In London, Raisman came in fourth place behind Aliya Mustafina in the all around final. In Rio de Janiero's all around competition, Raisman won silver medal, while Mustafina defended her bronze medal.

At London's floor final, Raisman and Mustafina won gold and bronze medals respectively.

The Olympic floor champion retired in 2020. Her last competitive appearance was at the Rio de Janiero Olympics.
