Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin just dropped one heck of a thirst trap. The 31-year-old former athlete and 2008 all-around Olympic champion kicked Monday off to a very figure-flaunting start, snapping herself in selfie mode and from her bedroom while modeling a super-snazzy and metallic-effect leotard as she shouted out her own merch. Nastia, followed by 1 million on Instagram and this year defending her body in a giant anorexia clap-back, showed off the killer waistline and the thigh gap. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia makes Christmas headlines for her holiday-inspired workouts, with this month already seeing the five-time Olympic medalist working out to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
The ‘Gram isn’t just for showing off walking on hands and those downward dog stretches. Nastia’s selfie today was alerting fans to a clothing collab she has, with the selfie showing off a skin-tight and black-piped leotard that flaunted the Russian-born star’s tiny waist, sculpted shoulders, and super-slim legs.
Nastia, who recently enjoyed a snowy cabin retreat in Montana, geo-tagged herself in her Dallas, TX base, writing: “The #nastiaxozone holiday collection just dropped – and this one is my fav ? shop the collection now – link in bio! @ozoneleos.”
Nastia, who also retails a $55 Celery Green Cream with Volition, quickly had fans keen to shop the look. “This makes me want to buy leos again and I’m #retired,” one follower wrote. A like also quickly came in from tennis face Venus Williams. More photos below.
Nastia, whose life generally presents as super-organized from her pantry to her workouts, is fresh from admitting she isn’t actually all prepped for the holidays. Posing in a red sweater this month, the blonde told fans:
“Overheard someone at the nail salon say she already finished (AND wrapped) all of her Christmas shopping… and I’m over here like…. am I the only one that hasn’t even started? ? also should I go back to slightly darker hair?”

Nastia, who retired aged just 22 back in 2012 and admitted she felt “lost” in regular gyms after quitting the beam, has plenty of brands interested in her, even if her Olympic days are nearly a decade old. 2020 has seen Nastia influencing for skincare brand Olay, with Nastia also fronting Bright Fitness App in paid Instagram promos.
Nastia also has a celebrity following. Her IG is kept tabs on by 23-year-old gymnastics superstar Simone Biles, plus stars including Selma Blair and Jessie James Decker.
