After a week of triumphs comebacks and disappointments at the Russian Championships, the Russian Federation has announced their team headed to the European Championships this May.

Good news for Viktoria Komova fans, as she will make her first international appearance since the London Olympics. Joining her will be the always glorious Aliya Mustafina, who will most likely want to defend her bars title from last year's Euro's or perhaps pick up a European beam title to match her world championship title on the beam from Antwerp.
The other three team members will include Russian national team member and Russian National silver medalist Alla Sosnitskaya, who took the all-around title at the Brasilian Gymnasiade. She also won the vault title at the Russian Championships this past week. Joining her is Maria Kharenkova, first year senior and beam extraordinary and the all-around Youth Olympic Festival champion and first year senior, Daria Spiridonova.
The European Championships will be held May 12-18 in Sofia, Bulgaria. There will be no senior all-around competition this year as the team competition is being held instead.
