Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin‘s bikinis come with a time limit – so it would seem. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist made headlines over the weekend for showing her bikini body actually comes with a hip indent from all that muscle, but Nastia had ditched her swimwear by the time Sunday night rolled in. The 2008 all-around champion, using her Island Girl bikini to wish she were in Hawaii, was back to reality and from her Dallas, TX home last night, and the look was anything but swimwear. Check it out below.
Scroll for the latest bikini and last night’s photo. The above photo, an oldie but a goodie on Nastia’s Instagram, marked just one of the instances the gymnast ear-marked her love of pink – she’s even part of a Facebook group called “50 Shades of Pink.”
Posting yesterday all cozied up in a gray sweater and with dog Harley, Nastia showcased her weekend chill vibes for her 1 million followers, snapping herself in front of a circular mirror all messy-bunned and looking gorgeous with, seemingly, zero effort.
Nastia, who wrote “SUNDAY mood,” kept it very casual, although her followers are still losing it over the from-below bikini shot, one that took in perfect skies, palms, and the Moscow native’s jaw-dropping Olympian body. The confident pose came with a zen caption, also one that seemed to shout out the downsides of COVID – Liukin has traveled to Montana over the pandemic, but only to spend time hunkered down in a cabin in the middle of nowhere.
“Mentally here,” Nastia wrote, adding that she was “physically sitting at home in the pouring rain wishing i was in Maui.”
If your eye caught “50 Shades of Pink,” that came as a January 2021 ad for Facebook App, one seeing Liukin in a leggy pink dress as she shouted out the social media giant, writing:
“If you know me, you know that pink is my power suit. From my scrunchies as a young gymnast to my lucky pink leo that I wore in Beijing, pink is the color that makes me feel the most me. #ad “

Nastia was just 22 when she retired back in 2012, even admitting to The Cut that she gained 10-20 pounds after quitting the beam. 2020, meanwhile, brought Liukin ending the year on a high as she inked a movie deal in “Little Gymnasts,” with the star just last week announcing a hair accessory collab, one that adds to her leotard and workout ones. Nastia also competed on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2015.
