Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin tested the waters yesterday – basically, what the 31-year-old might look like if she were an Olympic skiier. The five-time Olympic medalist and 2008 all-around champion’s Wednesday Instagram update came from her current and very snowy Montana location, with the Russian-born star channeling her love of pink, fashion, humor, and eye-catching social media photos. Nastia’s 1 million followers saw the stunner flaunting her killer body in a hot pink skisuit complete with skis and an amusing caption. Check it out below
Scroll for the photos. They come as Nastia wraps up a headline-making 2020, one that’s seen her both ink a movie deal in “Little Gymnasts” and, just recently, reuinte the entire 2008 Women’s USA Gymnastics team.
Nastia’s snaps, all seeing her in freshly-blanketed powder snow and amid fur trees, brought the gymnast in a girly pink-and-black skisuit, black Moon boots, and skiier shades as she held a pair of skies, went full ski bunny, and even arched hair back for a dramatic ponytail whip.
Nastia, who will regularly showcase that massive thigh gap and had hers on show, tagged herself in Big Sky Country, also writing: “If I was an Olympic skier this would be my look, obvi.”
“Never too late!” a fan replied with a cry-face emoji, although responses are now topped by a quote from iconic movie “Mean Girls,” with the user writing: “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”
Nastia had also tagged the brands she was wearing, clearly upping the luxury as she wore Goldbergh for her skiwear.

Nastia’s career was the definition of a short shelf life, although the star is hardly out of work since quitting the beam aged just 22 back in 2012. She hands out the Nastia Cup every year, she’s big-time into beauty blogging, and her $55 Celery Green Cream retails alongside her leotard and gym equipment collabs.
Nastia also regularly back-and-forths on IG with fellow gymnasts including 2008 face Samantha Peszek – she’s also followed by 23-year-old gymnastics superstar Simone Biles.

Nastia made headlines earlier this year for appearing in a sponsored post for skincare giant Olay as she extended both legs from a bubble bath while “[bringing]” the self-care activity back for 2020. Unwinding is something this star knows something about, having mentioned it in 2016 as she told The Cut:
“Unwinding is extremely important for me. I feel like I’m always around so many people and I’m constantly talking and sharing my energy so I try to make time for myself, like doing a face mask.”
