Klyukina contributed to the team score again on both uneven bars and balance beam scoring a 15.000 and 15.025 respectively. Due to a vaulting incident with teammate Ekatarina Kramarenko scoring a 0 the Russian team placed 8th in the team final. Again Klyukina did not advance to any individual finals.  

In 2008 Klyukina competed at the European Championships. Here she competed on her two best events, uneven bars and balance beam. Klyukina helped the Russian team earn a silver medal in the team competition. She did not advance to any individual finals. Later that year Klyukina was one of the first four Russian girls named to the 2008 Olympic team.

In the team final she only competed on vault. The Russian team placed 4th in the team final. Klyukina did not advance to any individual finals.

In 2009 after suffering an injury Klyukina attempted to keep competing. She competed in the Russian National Championships placing 6th on beam but wasn't able to get back into full shape and therefore retired.
