She won the bronze medal on vault in the 2012 European Women's Artistic Gymnastics Championships. Competing at the 2012 Summer Olympics as the only women's gymnast from Switzerland, she finished 14th in the women's individual all-around with a score of 56.148.

Steingruber continued to compete after the Olympics. She competed in the Swiss Cup Zürich, where she won silver. She also competed at the Stuttgart World Cup, where she won bronze in the all-around (missing second place by just 0.001).

2013

In March, she was announced as a member of the Swiss team for the City of Jesolo Trophy.[1] Later that month, she competed at the La Roche-sur-Yon World Cup, where she won both the vault and uneven bars. At the Doha World Cup, she won bronze on vault.

In April, she competed at the European Championships. She originally tied for fourth in the all-around with Romania's Diana Bulimar until a tie breaker was induced and the fourth place finish was awarded to Bulimar. In the vault final, she won gold over Bulimar's compatriot Larisa Iordache and Netherlands' Noël Van Klaveren. In the floor final, she placed sixth. In September, she swept the Swiss National Championships and was promptly named to the Swiss team for the World Championships.

In qualifications, Steingruber competed in the fifth subdivision. She qualified eighth to the all-around, fifth to the vault final, and seventh to the floor exercise final. In the all-around, she competed in the second rotational group and finished seventh. In vault finals, she competed first. Her handspring Rudi vault scored a 15.500, and her double-twisting Yurchenko scored a 14.966, averaging out to a 15.233. She finished fourth. In the floor exercise final, she competed fifth. She underrotated her first pass but performed the rest of the routine well, scoring a 14.333. She finished fifth, tied with USA's Kyla Ross.

Following the World Championships, Steingruber had a packed schedule. She was selected to compete at the Arthur Gander Memorial in late October, the Swiss Cup in early November, and the Stuttgart World Cup in late November. She won silver in the all-around at the Gander Memorial, bronze at the Swiss Cup, and placed fourth at the Stuttgart World Cup.

2014

In January, she was announced as a competitor for the American Cup in early March.[2] In early February, she was announced as a competitor for the Tokyo World Cup in April.[3] She had three great routines, but stumbled a little on her second pass on floor. She won the bronze behind USA's Elizabeth Price and Brenna Dowell. Later that month, she injured her knee in training and withdrew from the Doha and Tokyo World Cup competitions.[4] She recovered well enough to compete at the Osijek World Cup, winning floor exercise gold, vault silver, balance beam bronze, and placing fifth on bars.

In May, she competed at the European Championships. She defended her vault title, won bronze on floor exercise, and placed eighth with her team and on balance beam (after a fall). At the Swiss Nationals in August, she defended almost all her National titles from last year, except balance beam, where she won silver. The following week, she competed at a friendly meet against Germany and Romania, winning all-around silver, and team, vault, balance beam, and floor exercise bronze.
