2018 is an exciting time for the Russian team, with veterans Aliya Mustafina and Viktoria Komova making their return at the European Championships, in Glasgow. This will be the first time the pair will have competed on the same team since the London Olympics, when the Russian team was at it’s prime.
The pair are set to compete at the European Championships in Glasgow, with world all around bronze medalist Elena Ermina as well. The team has struggled to capture the glory it received at the 2010 World Championships in Rotterdam, in which Russia took the team gold and Aliya Mustafina won the all around title. Could this be their year to come back?
The European Championships will be held at the SSE Hydro, a fantastic location just outside the city center of Glasgow. Nearby there is the city’s West End hotspot Finnieston, which has some of the country’s most contemporary bars and restaurants. There is also a whole host of accomidation options right beside the Hydro, under a 5-minute walk away.
