In an era defined by the dominance of Simone Biles, Aliya Mustafina seemed to dominate everyone else. Besides Biles, she is the only other gymnast to have won a medal on every event in the last decade. At the 2010 World Championships Mustafina led the Russian team to its first and to date only, win in the team competition. Mustafina would go on to be one of the few gymnasts to have multiple Olympic All-Around medals, but perhaps her most impressive accomplishment is being back-to-back Olympic Champion on the uneven bars. It has become a considerably harder event in recent gymnastics history due to the rise of specialists.

Aliya Mustafina did it all while overcoming a torn ACL at the 2011 European Championships. Historically speaking, top AA contenders rarely maintain their top form after suffering a major injury. In light of that injury, Mustafina medal haul is considerably more impressive than it looks.
