Euros and injury update – Afanasyeva, Kramarenko, Komova and more
Many of the Russian gymnasts are injured and/or recovering from surgery.
Team Russia at this point is Rodionova, Spiridinova, Sosnitskaya, Kharenkova and captain Mustafina (2 apparatus).
Komova and Afan are both in the same German hospital right now. Messing around.
