Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin didn’t roll around her bed for free today. The five-time Olympic medalist and 2008 all-around champion entered snuggle mode as the savvy influencer that she is, with Nastia’s 1 million Instagram followers getting both a photo of her “Gold Medal Butt” in a classy bed snap, plus a bit of a romp in video mode. Nastia, 31, updated her social media on Tuesday morning with a cozy start to the day as she cuddled with dog Harley and flaunted her mean body. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. Nastia, who recently threw it back by walking on her hands and across a blue-floored gym, had picked a much cozier setting – the all-white bedroom in her stylish Dallas, TX home. The Moscow-born sensation’s photo showed her flaunting her jaw-dropping lean legs as she snuggled with her dog, also wearing tiny cream knit shorts with a matching cropped sweater.
Video mode, meanwhile, got more fun as Nastia romped around the bed, flashed her taut tummy, and showed she was rocking a braless look.
Keep scrolling for more photos. Nastia took to her caption and abided by Instagram’s “sponsored” disclaimer. The star who has already brought “bubble baths back for 2020” via her Olay bathtub promo wrote:
“Harley and I are snuggling down until 2020 is over, but in the meantime, @brooklinen’s Black Friday Sale just started!! 20% off sitewide! Links in my stories to my favorite items for everyone on your list (and for you). <3 #mybrooklinenstyle #brooklinen #sponsored”

Nastia, who retired from professional gymnastics aged just 22 in 2012, has been big-time influencing. 2020 has brought the blonde representing popular skincare company Olay, clothing brand Revolve, plus the Bright Fitness App recently seeing Nastia slip on her boxing gloves. The star does, however, run her own gig with a $55 Celery Green Cream retailing as part of a collaboration with Volition.
Nastia is also fresh from kicking off her YouTube channel. Keep scrolling for the leggy bubble bath shot!
Nastia’s sponsored post today comes as part of her regular paid gigs that provide decent top-up income. Pay on Instagram directly correlates with following, something that experts at Vox have offered suggested pay figures for.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!”
Nastia sits at a sweet 1 million. She’s also followed by 23-year-old Olympic gymnast Simone Biles.
