Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin‘s miniscule spandex strip-down came complete with a mirror view this morning. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, in the news both last year and in 2021 for clapping back to skinny-shamers, is continuing to shut down the hate with her body flaunts, with Friday seeing the Russian born star stun her 1 million Instagram followers in skin-tight and skimpy workout gear, plus one very stylish-looking closet. Nasta was ready to hit the gym on Friday, but the fans get to join her. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo and expect one Gold Medal body ready to sweat. Nastia, who retired aged just 22 back in 2012, is keeping up with the Joneses on the workout front, although it’s more Pilates and power boxing than flipping across beams, these days.
Snapping herself and highlighting her massive thigh gap, steely legs, and rock-hard abs in tiny black leggings and a sports bra, the 2008 all-around champion framed her jaw-dropping body with a mirror view, plus plenty of shelved sneakers and designer handbags.
Nastia, standing straight and seeing her defined abs visible despite being fairly far shot-out, opted out of a caption, then disappeared – with a 24-hour time limit on IG stories, the photo will too.
If you don’t live inside Nastia’s Instagram, the account has been celebrating the gymnast’s continued career success, with 2020 ending on a high for Nastia as she inked a movie deal in “Little Gymnasts.” The “Dancing With the Stars” alum has also been big-time gearing up for the 12th annual Nastia Cup. See the thigh gap below!
Just one week ago, and posting stunning throwbacks from last year’s Nastia event, the Revolve partner got her followers pumped for this year’s event, writing:
“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.”
Liukin has also been making headlines for giving fans a piece of her mind. See it and the pink bikini below!
Nastia, who faced an anorexia storm in October 2020 as a fan DM asked how she feels about “promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies,” got round 2.0 in 2021, with the “post a pic of” trend seeing yet another troll rear their ugly head. Nastia was asked to post a pic of her “gross skinny chicken legs.” The star promptly clapped back, 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?”
