Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is getting ready for Hot Girl Summer … but first she’s gotta do something about these tan lines!
The gold medal champion took to Instagram this week and modeled some new swimwear for her 1 million followers. The latest shots from the gymnastics turned social media maven come on the heels of another big milestone in Liuikin’s personal life as she shared some big news about her main man and the importance of the forever bond they share.
Rocking a tie-dye cutout one piece, Nastia Liukin showed off her slender frame while posing for selfies in her bedroom.
“bad tan lines, but good vibes,’ the Olympian captioned the provocative shot.
Although her followers praised Liukin over the gorgeous photo, others thought that her bathing suit may be a little too unconventional for a day out with friends.
“That looks like the most uncomfortable bathing suit ever,” one fan commented on Instagram.
I think we’d all agree it takes someone special – like a gymnastics superstar – to comfortably pull off the look.
Although the focus of Nastia Liukin’s photo was supposed to be about her swimsuit, others could not help but focus on the artwork behind that appeared to be an abstract continuous-line drawing of a gymnast in motion.
One eagle-eyed fan even noticed that the figure was pulling off some of Liukin’s famous gymnastic moves.
“Would love to see that full drawing behind you! I think I see three iconic moves from you? Pak salto, layout step out, and floor choreo with your leg behind your head?”
Although Nastia Liukin may be insecure about her tan lines, the star is not shy about proclaiming her love for the #1 man in her life … her dog, Harley! The golden doodle is regularly featured on the gymnast’s Instagram page as fans have watched him grow up over the past year.
” I can’t believe you’re already a year old. You came into my life when I least expected it time, yet it was a time I needed you most – without even fully realizing it then… and you have changed my life forever,” Liukin wrote to her furry BFF.
She added, “I hope you love this little life of yours and I promise to forever give you the best life I can.”
In honor of Harley’s birthday, Nastia Liukin also shared some never-before-seen footage from a training session she had attended while trying to teach Harley some good manners. Although he seems pretty rambunctious, the gymnastics star promised that he made great progress and continues to work with the trainers.
“While there was clearly no shortage of the love I have for Harley, like any other puppy, he did need a little guidance and training and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the progress that was made in even the short time,” she captioned the sweet video.
