Russian News Piece on the National Championships Featuring Viktoria Komova

The Russian Championships are happening this week in Penza, Russia.

It has been confirmed that all of the major players (excluding Ksenia Afasaneyva) are there.
That does include Viktoria Komova and Tatiana Nabieva. However, this is not a "comeback" she's just there to help her St. Petersburg team and nothing more.

In this video clip from the Russian news media, we see lovely Aliya Mustafina giving an interview and we see clips of the girls in training, including the elusive Viktoria Komova, who is back after nearly a year off.  She's definitely grown, but she still has those lovely lines. She looks so different, I nearly didn't recognize her.
