Additional information
General
INJURY AND RECOVERY
She had thoughts about retiring after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee in July 2018, but soon decided that she did not want to end her career on a sour note. As part of her rehabilitation she committed to working on the psychological part of the sport. "It was extremely important for me to begin committing time to mental training right away. It's important not to forget how it feels to compete. That really helps me. I lie down, close my eyes and imagine myself doing well at a competition. I do my routines. I need an external and internal understanding of what's going on. For the external understanding, I'll watch a video of myself competing. For the internal, I think about how I set my hands on the vault, and what I see. That's when it's just me, without music." (eng.gymnovosti.com, 04 Oct 2018; tagesanzeiger.ch, 26 Sep 2018)

NAMED ELEMENT
She introduced her own element on the balance beam during the 2011 World Championships in Tokyo, Japan. The gainer salto stretched with a full twist at the end of the beam is now called the 'Steingruber' in the Code of Points. (stv-fsg.ch, 22 Nov 2011)
