Victoria Reznik got her first taste of international multi-sport competition at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010 where she and twin sister Anjelika were members of the group that won the bronze medal. She then watched as Anjelika competed at the 2011 Pan Am Games and the 2012 Olympic Games. Victoria made her FIG World Championship debut in 2014 after competing at the Pan American Championships.

Their 21st place finish at the 2014 World Championships ensured that they would compete at the 2015 World Championships which is the first qualification event for the 2016 Olympic Games.
