Viktoria Aleksandrovna Komova was born on January 30, 1995 in Voronezh, Russia. She is a current member of the Russian national team. Komova came home with 3 gold medals from the 2010 Youth Olympic Games (AA, UB, VT) and posted one of the highest AA scores of the 2009-2012 quadrennium. At the 2011 World Championships, she came up short in the all around by a mere three hundreths of a point but she had just recovered from an ankle surgery and was not competing her full difficulty. Komova was expected to heal and finally win gold at the 2012 Olympic All Around Final but a few mistakes and an extremely talented and well prepared Gabby Douglas would prevent her from doing so. Viktoria has since been plagued by illness, injuries, and a major growth spurt of 6 inches. We have yet to see her at a European or World Championship but one should never count Komova out from the Rio Olympics.
