Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is hanging around braless and surrounded by a sea of pink feathers – seemingly, because it’s Monday. The 31-year-old flexibility queen and 2008 all-around champion, known for her love of girly looks and fashion, updated today for her 1 million Instagram followers and throwing them a pink overload. The gymnast who this year admitted she’s in a Facebook group called “50 Shades of Pink,” basically put her money where her mouth is. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia continues to clap back at haters over her slim figure, this year clapping back over her “gross skinny chicken legs” and today showing them off – from Nastia’s end, those legs won her medals.
Posing indoors, on a pale pink couch, and perusing a sea of clothes, Nastia posted in the skimpiest loungewear around, outfitting her Gold Medal frame in tiny gray shorts and a matching, no-bra tank, also highlighting her toned and trim shoulders.
The five-time Olympic medalist, examining a girly pink coat and seen with feathered pink dresses everywhere and a whole rail of pink clothing behind her, didn’t offer eye contact, but a caption touched base with fans.
“Casual mondays at NLHQ when @lagabstyle is back in town ? #countdowntothecup,” Liukin wrote, shouting out the 12th annual Nastia Cup coming up. Nastia may have retired aged just 22 back in 2012, but her legacy is for life. See the photo and her massive stretch below!
Nastia has been making headlines for gearing up for the cup named after her, one that comes as the Russian-born star herself makes headlines for inking a movie deal in “Little Gymnasts.”
“Exactly THREE weeks till the 12th (!!!!) annual Nastia Liukin Cup…. and while this year’s will look a little different, I’m beyond excited that we are able to still safely hold this event. Can’t wait to watch all of you strong, beautiful women compete,” she wrote three days ago. See her insane yoga stretch below!
Nastia, raised by two Olympic gymnast parents, found herself in training gyms at a young age as her parents couldn’t afford childcare. The rubber-band body, honed over decades, is still kept in tip-top shape as Nastia makes workout headlines, but it’s everything from Pilates and boxing to outdoor runs with dog Harley these days. Nastia is even launching a dog brand named after her pooch – watch out for Harley & Me.
