Gymnast Nastia Liukin is enjoying a Texas sunset, although she didn’t give fans a look at her sunset in her latest video!
Instead, the Russian-born former American artistic gymnast put on a steamy display as she sunbathed by the pool wearing her shades and a bright orange bikini!
Gymnast Nastia Liukin Sunbathes By The Pool In Her Orange Bikini
In her latest Instagram post, the 2008 Olympic all-around champion shared a video of her walking barefoot toward the pool in her little orange bikini. Her long blonde hair is tied back into a ponytail as she walks toward the pool, wearing sunglasses to hide her eyes from the sun.
She steps into the shallow water and grabs a drink before she sits down on a chaise lounge chair. Nastia turns around before the video cuts to her standing beside the chair before lying back down. Nastia seems to rub water on her arms before she grabs her drink.
It looks like the sun sets and Nastia readjusts her position a few times before she starts walking into the water, but never actually goes for a swim. Nastia set the clip to the song “Texas Sun” and wrote “Texas (sunsets) forever” in the caption.
Fans Love Nastia’s New Video… But Where Was The Sunset?
She also revealed that the video was actually an ad for the @ledgelounger chaise lounge chair, adding the hashtags #ledgeloungepartner and #gifted. The brand commented, “Best seat in the house! We love a good sunset!” alongside a sunset emoji.
“Permanent chair in the pool… I love it!” one fan commented. “Those chairs in the water are awesome!!!!” another follower agreed. “Love the lounge chairs in the water,” a third fan chimed in. “Live it up,” another follower added.
Other fans wanted to gush over her pool. “How deep does your pool go? It’s REALLY NICE!! I feel like it should be modeled by resorts!” one fan commented. “I feel like you found the nicest pool/backyard in Dallas lol I am jealous!!” another follower added. “House tour/backyard tour soon please?” another fan asked.
One user commented, “But we never got to see the actual sunset!” to which Nastia replied, “Check out my last post.”
Nastia Liukin Shares A Photo Of A GORGEOUS Sunset!
Sure enough, only two days ago, the 33-year-old former athlete took to Instagram to share a video of the sun setting over her pool along with a few other highlights from her weekend. The sky is lit up with bright oranges, reds, and yellows, which stands in stark contrast to the blue water in her pool.
“weekend things: including THE most unreal sunset a few nights ago, NO FILTER… can you even believe this is real?” she asked her followers. “God doesn’t paint every day but when He does…” one fan commented. “I cannot,” another follower wrote. “That sunset is incredible,” a third fan chimed in.
Fans Are Concerned That Nastia Might Be Getting Too Thin!
The day before that, the 2007 World champion on the balance beam took to Instagram again to share a video of her getting dressed. She captioned the video “Weekend fit” and tagged @aliceandolivia for the top, @ganni for the skirt, and @prada for the shoes and backpack.
Some fans absolutely loved her outfit, with one fan commenting, “Just an absolutely GORGEOUS young lady!!! A real statement of natural beauty. Stay real and stay beautiful.”
However, other users felt that she was becoming too skinny, which is something that many of her fans have commented on over the past few weeks. “Wow, too thin. Extremely unhealthy. Yes, a beautiful star. But, your fans are worried for you. We are,” one user wrote. “Omg, please eat some carbs. No offense,” another user added.
Another user bluntly told her to “Eat some food” which earned pushback from fans. “Some of the people in these comments need to stop with the skinny shaming. The fact she has to turn comments off on some pictures/videos is sad. Just because you’re miserable doesn’t mean you have to bring someone else down,” one follower wrote.
“How about we normalize not commenting on people’s bodies – good, bad, neutral or otherwise,” another fan chimed in. “Thank you!!” another follower agreed, adding, “It’s really weird!”
