The roster for the Moscow World Stars has been released. Vikoria Komova is not on it, which was originally supposed to be the meet her coaches were aiming to have her back for. It is better that they don't rush her back into competition.
Those competing include:
Anna Dementyeva: UB (Ex.), BB, FX
Ana Porgras: UB, BB
Lauren Mitchell: UB (Recovering from an ankle injury)
Oksana Chusovitina (Coaching for Uzbekistan and competing for Germany)
