Aliya Mustafina interview

Aliya is still training.

Mustafina said she hopes to compete at the Russian Cup in June and prepare for the Tokyo Olympics. Now she might have even more time in store if the Olympics are postponed due to the pandemic.

She also hopes to have more elements named after her, one of her big dreams is to compete a Shaposhnikova transition with a one and a half turn. …

gymnovosti – MUSTAFINA: WHEN I COULD RETIRE ON A HIGH NOTE, I DIDN’T DO IT

I was in the media section when Aliya tore her ACL on Vault in the AA final at Tokyo Worlds.

Nope. It was at 2011 Europeans in Berlin. My mistake.

At the time I felt she didn’t need the Amanar that day. But in this interview she explains that she didn’t feel Amanar was either difficult nor dangerous. It was just another skill.

  1. Wasn’t her ACL tear at Euros in 2011? If I remember correctly, Aliya qualified in first but Anna Dementyeva went on to win the AA.
