The annual Mikhail Voronin Cup will take place in Dynamo Moscow Gymnastics Club December 14th – 18th. The Junior and Senior competition is dashed with some good names, mostly the Russian Seniors. 2010 All Around Voronin Cup Champion Aliya Mustafina is rostered to compete, however, since she withdrew from the DTB Pokal Stuttgart World Cup it will be interesting to see how she fares. Mustafina was to compete at the inaugural Mexican Open this weekend but she has not been cleared to compete in the All Around competition, as the official website explained last month. We should expect Mustafina to compete on Bars and Beam. Alan Owen who runs Mustafina’s website has confirmed that she will compete but again, she could withdraw on the day. He also announced that she is to compete in London in January, presumably at the test event.It was also announced that Viktoria Komova will compete but Tatiana Nabieva will not as she is receiving treatment for back pain.

Here is who we have to look forward to in the WAG Senior competition. Thanks to The All Around for posting this information last week.

Unfortunately it has been confirmed that IG TV will not be broadcasting the competition. So keep an eye out on YouTube for videos.
