Due her successful junior career and early season performances, Melnikova was expected to advance to numerous Olympic event finals and be in contention for an all-around medal. However, Melnikova performed subpar during the qualification round, partially due to a strained hamstring suffered during podium training. She fell off of the balance beam and again on floor exercise, failing to qualify for the individual all-around final or any of the event finals.

As a result, she finished eleventh in the all-around. Melnikova participated in the Stuttgart World Cup in March, placing second behind Germany's Tabea Alt due to a fall off the balance beam. The following month she competed at the City of Jesolo Trophy where she received three bronze medals in the team event, vault, and floor exercise.
