Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is drenched to the bone in a minuscule swimsuit after stuffing her face with pizza in a no-sleep travel confess. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist has ditched her Dallas, TX base for somewhere hotter, with the 2008 all-around champion now in Palm Springs, CA. Posting for her 1 million Instagram followers all this week, Nastia has been documenting the arrival, the shoots, the glam, and the latest jaw-dropping bathing suit action. Check out the bikini and pizza below.
Scroll for the food and the figure. Nastia, who faced an anorexia storm in 2020 and this year clapped back over her “gross skinny chicken legs,” was proving that gymnasts absolutely do eat, with the blonde yesterday updating with an admission to a little junk food consumption.
The photo showed Nastia in a chic black shirt and getting dolled up by her glam team while holding a slice of mouth-watering cheesy pizza to her mouth, also clutching a cup of coffee.
All red lips and looking good enough to eat, Nastia took to her caption, revealing: “How I survive 20 hour shoot days with 2 hours of sleep: pizza, coffee, and gummy bears – not pictured, not proud ?.”
Liukin, out in Palm Springs for a secret new project that’s come with a massive tease, then updated with her Gold Medal body all wet an in a tiny, floral-adorned black-and-white swimsuit with an open back. Nastia’s hair was soaking-wet, with the killer legs also moist.
The stunning desert shots, snagging Nastia over 19,000 likes, came captioned: “Wanderlust and desert dust,” with the Russian-born star tagging herself at famous Joshua Tree, CA spot. The post follows one marking Nastia’s arrival in the destination, with Nastia going poolside in casual ripped jeans and writing:
“Something is coming. something that has been a DREAM. something that has been on my vision board for years…. now after years of manifesting, hard work, and the best team ever – it’s freaking happening ?.”

Nastia, in 2016 revealing that her Olympic gymnast mother had raised her to “have a cookie” if she wanted one, now sees fans dragging her out over the junk food caption.
“Why do you need to be disappointed to yourself for eating a few gummy bears? That leads to bad habits and negative thoughts. Eat the damn gummy bears if you want to,” a popular comment reads. A troll also told the beauty that she could “do” with a hamburger.
