Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin was fresh outta luck with a giant elevator crisis on Monday. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist appeared to have a slightly unwelcomed interruption to the start of her business week yesterday, with the 2008 all-around champion posting the moment she got stuck in an elevator on Instagram. Nastia, followed by 1 million and largely known for going both glam and real AF, went with the latter here. Extra kudos for the Russian-born star since she’s seemingly claustrophobic. Check it out below.
Scroll for the elevator action, plus this blonde’s insane Olympic flexibility. Nastia, who has been in the news of late for perfecting her massive thigh gap in snowy Montana while on vacation, was back in her Dallas, TX base. She posted an up-above shot showing a group inside an elevator, and yes, there appeared to be a crisis.
Delivering what most people binge popcorn over in the movies, Nastia was seen in a wrap tan dress and with her killer, gold-medal leg folded and bare, also offering what was going on.
Nastia, who was just about distinguishable as she held a smartphone in front of her, took to her caption from the marbled elevator, writing: “We got stuck in a elevator earlier. it’s fine. we are fine. I’m not claustrophobic or anything.”
If you think sarcasm is a rarity for Nastia, think again. Asked about her “gross skinny chicken legs” recently by a fan, Nastia posted the requested pic, then clapped right back saying:
“Unclear if you’re trying to be hurtful or what, but these “gross skinny chicken legs” helped me win an olympic gold medal, huh?”

Nastia’s clap-back comes as round two, or is it three, following her 2020 anorexia storm, sparked by a fan asking how Liukin feels about “promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies.” Instead of ignoring the remark, Liukin reposted it, offering a piece of her mind and a skin-tight bronze dress.
“This week I got a DM that really triggered me in so many ways,” she wrote alongside the post. “It made me feel: defeated, pissed, sad, annoyed, confused, shocked, and many other feelings.”
Not done, Nastia continued:
“If taking pictures of my OWN body — a body that won me many Olympic medals, a body that I push each day to get stronger, a body that God gave me — is inherently promoting anorexia, then honestly, we’ve gotten to a place in the world where just BEING is offensive.”
Nastia, who stocks Oreos in her panty as a given, is also fresh from hitting a taco spot. For something a little different, scroll for Nastia forgetting her shirt by a dumpster.
