Anastasia Grishina to miss Russian Nationals due to injury

Dolly-Z has provided the following news from her blog : - 

'Anastasia Grishina will miss 2015 Russian Nationals due to the knee injury.

Nastia injured her knee again, right before the Nationals.
It happened on practice last week (end of the February) while she was doing vault.
She was doing Double twisting Yurchenko, but underrotated the second twist and hurt the same knee she’d hurt last year. Doctors said there is nothing really serious. She luckily didn’t break any bone and didn’t tore anything! But she’ll have to miss Nationals.

So sad to hear it. She was in a good shape. It took her a year to recover from her last injury she got in April 2014. And now such a disappointing moment again :( But she will be ok!

Let’s wish her a speedy recovery! Stay strong, Nastia! ❤'

It is only early in the season, so there is plenty of time for Nastia to recover and perhaps gain eligibility for competitions later in the year - the Universiade, for example.  Nastia is mature and philosophical about her injury.  She said :  "We don't play chess. You need always to be prepared for that".

Good luck, Nastia!  RRG and friends wishes you the very best for a speedy recovery!  


  1. I feel so bad for Anastasia! She cannot seem to catch a break. Still, I'm glad it doesn't sound too serious. Best wishes to her!!

  2. I was so excited to see her back but I gotta say I am not surprised. I expect a couple more athletes to be out due to "Injury" from the list that was announced earlier like always.

  3. This is devastating news. I'm glad it's nothing serious and I hope we'll see her at Worlds later in the year.

Viktoria Komova - apology

Viktoria wrote some hasty words last night in the heat of the moment.  We all have such times, when hurt feelings lead us to behave uncharacteristically.  It is not important what she said; it is important that Vika has reflected and wants us all to read this message which she published on this morning. "Dear friends! I want to apologize for my statements about American girls, about drugs, all my words were spoken on emotions. Of course I haven't any proof and didn't really mean it and so on... I am so sorry. I want to apologize for my character to all of you". Vika, we are still with you every step of the way.
