Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is turning heads with her no-front swimwear and an arched back. The 31-year-old Russian-born star, followed by 1 million on Instagram, dropped her latest thirst trap on Sunday, posting another jaw-dropping figure show-off and seemingly glad that the Texas weather this weekend was good. Nastia, who left Russia as a child and now lives in Dallas, TX, was all abs, legs, and attitude, with the edgy selfie also hiding the blonde’s face. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia makes major headlines for having hosted the 12th annual Nastia Cup this month, an event this year taking the 2008 all-around champion to Indianapolis, Indiana.
Back in Texas and flying the flag for the little wave of summer the South is getting right now, Nastia updated indoors and stripped down to a super-tiny, olive, and ribbed bathing suit, one that came knotted below an underboob-flaunting neckline and with a giant hollow front panel.
Showing off tight hips, super-toned thighs, and her Gold Medal waist, Nastia pushed her torso out a little with a slightly arched back, also highlighting her new, shorter hairdo, all choppy blonde and beachy waves. “Texas, thanks for giving us all a little glimpse of spring/summer today,” the gymnast wrote.
“Okkkyaayyy” quickly came in as a comment – bear in mind, praise isn’t guaranteed for Liukin, who gets skinny-shamed and trolled, this year asked to post a pic of her “gross skinny chicken legs.”
Nastia, who did not appreciate the “gross skinny chicken legs” remark, clapped back, also doing just this in 2020 as a fan DM asked her how she feels about “promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies.” The Pottery Barn partner is, however, now making headlines for fronting the retailer, with a new Architectural Digest feature accompanying the promo as Nastia opens up her stylish and muted accent home – and it’s all decked out by Pottery Barn.

With flowers in her hair and wearing edgy, latex-effect leather, Nastia opened up her home ahead of the weekend, writing:
“As most of you know, I recently moved back to Dallas and have been working on and designing my home since the summer. I am finally so, so excited to share more, starting with one of my absolute favorite rooms, my office – aka NLHQ .”
Liukin this year also fronts Facebook App. If gymnast Simone Biles sounds familiar, check out the 23-year-old removing her chest piercing in a bikini below.
