It has been confirmed by the DTB Pokal Stuttgart World Cup Competition Director, Valery Belinki that the 2010 All Around World Champion Aliya Mustafina will compete at this weekends event. The Russian star will make her comeback just seven months after surgery to repair an ACL tear which she sustained at the 2011 European Championships.

Mustafina saw her Doctor on Tuesday in Germany and was granted permission to compete:

“The doctor has given the green light for a start. It is under the newly imposed Team competition balance beam and uneven bars to go to the starting line,” .

While it will be very exciting to see the return of Mustafina, many worry that this is too soon. Should the Russians risk bringing her back too soon or should they hold off and make sure that she is ok for the European Championships and the London 2012 Olympics? What do you think?

    I think she needs to get back to competition again asap, she has been gone long enough and needs that experience again
