Russian gymnast Daria Spiridonova told IG that, after sharing the 2015 world title on uneven bars with three other gymnasts, she is working on every aspect of her routine for a chance to win outright at this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“I need to do my routine maximally, cleanly and confidently,” said Spiridonova, who tied teammate Viktoria Komova, Madison Kocian of the U.S. and Fan Yilin of China for first place on uneven bars at the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow. “I am working on clean execution. It will be possible to try something event more. “

Spiridonova is next scheduled to compete at the European Championships that will take place in Bern from June 1-5.
