Alan Owen has confirmed via email that Viktoria Komova will compete in the upcoming Russian Cup taking place August 15th – 21st. He writes:

Special thanks to the Komov family for the new update! Vika is likely going to be competing at the Russian Cup taking place next month in Ekaterinburg. If all goes well at the Russian Cup, she will be scheduled to compete at another competition taking place in Belgium (I don’t know the name of the event.)

Sounds good but some might fear that this is too soon for Komova since we’re getting so close to Worlds in October.What do you think? Leave a comment below.

This news is also available on Komova’s Official website.

    With Aliya out of worlds I would think the Russians would air on the side of caution with there gymnasts. I mean they have some good gymnasts, but everyone knows Aliya was the scorer. There also at a disadvantage if they go to worlds with there sloppy Amanar Vaults. So I’d keep Viktoria outta competition till worlds, just to make sure she heals properly and doesn’t force anything until she’s ready to peek. Aliya & Viktoria we’re going to be the two to carry this team at worlds, now there down one power player, so hopefully they can keep the other one healthy and injury free.. If not they can pretty much kiss a 2nd world team title good bye.

    It’ll be nice to finally see her compete.

    She hasn’t had a competition for a bit – might be good for her to have a ‘practice’ competition at Russian Cup… maybe she should water down all her routines though… but if in doubt – leave her out… she needs to rest for worlds

    True, good to test the waters. I’d imagine she’ll only compete on Bars and Beam, probably too soon for floor and vault.
