Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is setting her legs on fire and doing it in a see-through top. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, fresh from seeing a troll ask her to post a pic of her “gross skinny chicken legs,” is putting the matter behind her with jaw-dropping snaps on her Instagram, with Sunday bringing the 2008 all around champion’s 1 million followers a fresh batch. Nastia, who clapped back at the “gross skinny chicken legs” remark, is now having the last laugh. Check it out below.
Scroll for the latest photos. They come in the wake of Nastia posting a snap from her beam moment and upside-down in the splits to shut down the shamer commenting on her legs. The former athlete, proving her point in her image, responded, writing:
“Unclear if you’re trying to be hurtful or what, but these “gross skinny chicken legs” helped me win an olympic gold medal, huh?”
Another day, another look. On Sunday, Liukin posted photos of herself in sun-drenched Dallas, TX, out on streets, and rocking quite the look.
Nastia, picking an unusual and flame-effect pair of jeans, posted strutting her stuff in the multi-tonal denim, also flaunting her teeny-tiny waist in a skimpy white crop top that was sheer enough to flash a matching bra underneath. The Moscow native took to her caption with a little virtual travel, writing: “Number one place on your bucket list?” and adding a globe emoji.
Fans are definitely responding. “Iceland,” one replied, with another saying: “Australia.” One user even eyed up The Scottish Highlands. See her mind-blowing stretch below!
Nastia retails her own $55 Celery Green Cream with Volition, but the gymnast is likewise a busy influencer, having made 2020 headlines for “bringing bubble baths” back for skincare brand Olay. Earlier today, Liukin posted from her kitchen and for NATURELO multivitamins, writing:
“If I have a motto this year, it’s: simplify. Simplify, simplify, simplify. From what I’m purchasing to what I’m putting in my body, I’m trying to go back to basics with it all. That’s one of the reasons why I LOVE NATURELO Vitamins.”

Nastia, who turned 31 at the end of 2020, is proof that professional gymnastics comes with a short shelf life. The “Dancing With the Stars” face retired aged just 22 back in 2012, then telling The Cut:
“I felt so lost for a good year. I gained probably 10 to 20 pounds, because when you stop doing something and just go cold turkey your body doesn’t even know what to do.”
