During most of her career, Vera Komisova was under the shadow of top Soviet 100 hurdler [Tatyana Anisimova]. The apex of Komisova’s career came at the 1980 Olympics, where she won the 100 hurdles gold medal in Anisimova’s absence, who had withdrawn due to injury. She was also a late substitute for injured [Lyudmila Kondratyeva] on the Soviet 4×100 relay team, which won a silver medal. Besides those two Olympic medals, Komisova won a 100 hurdles bronze at the 1979 Universiade. She won three Soviet titles – 100 metres in 1980; high hurdles in 1980; and 4×200 relay in 1978. After finishing her sports career, Komisova worked as a lecturer in the physical education department of the Herzen State Pedagogical University in St. Petersburg.
