Junior career[edit]

2010[edit]

Grishina did not compete for the rest of the year because she was resting a sore back. At the end of the year she told International Gymnast Magazine, "The best moments in 2010 were that I performed well at the European Championships, and I finished the first term at school with 13 5s (As) and three 4s (Bs). This year I'm finishing my ninth grade exams, and it would be good to pass the exams. And in gymnastics, I want to go to the European Youth Olympic Festival in Turkey and do well. Right now I have everything in order (with my health) and if all goes well, then I will compete at the Russian Championships."

Senior career[edit]

2012[edit]

"Grishina is a great young talent coming up. She's a very interesting gymnast, very beautiful. She's light, she's flexible, she can do good difficulty. It just so happens she's missed a lot of competition lately. But I have high hopes for Grishina and I'm looking forward to seeing how she performs on the podium."

In event finals, she placed fifth on vault scoring 14.266, second on uneven bars scoring 15.200, and fourth on balance beam scoring 14.066.[14] Grishina said, "The results were quite normal on the day of qualifications. I made a mistake on floor and took second place in the all-around, but unfortunately I didn’t advance to the final on floor. But in the team final I didn’t fall anywhere, and I was first all-around. This says that making a mistake is not allowable. As for the mood of the team, we're sorry that it was a little insufficient to reach first place in Brussels. So we need to polish our programs for victory in London. To win with the team, we will have to increase our difficulty on vault. My vault in Brussels wasn’t competitive because of its low start value. I would like to make my vault more difficult, and increase my difficulty on bars a little. I want to polish my choreography on floor, so my turns will be more stable. I would like to tell my fans to cheer for me in London and I will really, really try to please them with my performances."[15]
