Nastia Update


Transworld Sport returned to Plano to visit Nastia Liukin.  Since this was filmed, Nastia has continued to slim down and tone up as she attempts to get back into fighting form.

A shot from her latest Supergirl Photo Shoot.

  1. Cool! That was filmed quite a while ago.. surprised it took this long for them to release it. Love this girl.

  2. This video really highlights how she went from crazy awkward to crazy pretty with a quickness. If only we were all so lucky.

    Also I would like to call it now: Nastia and Shawn will both be in for 2012 Nastia will be the star of the games.

    She has gotten so much more relaxed in front of the camera, she's smokin hot now and the middle of the country won't be turned off by her Russian blood when she's beating actual Russians.

    As for SJ: that dim bulb aw shucks stuff was passably cute at 16 but now she just comes off like a moron.

    You can't beat the gold medal + the look for men's magazines. Money in the bank.

    And thank god, people should not hear gymnast and think Shawn Johnson.

  3. Love it! She'll be fiercer than ever. Notice how she says "no one will take that gold from me [the AA gold]" then corrects herself and says all her medals. LOL. Love it! I doubt she'll go AA. Can't wait!

  4. Thanks for the updates! I'm hoping Nastia will let her fans know soon if her comeback is a go-we're now well into December after all.

  5. Heard she's been wavering a bit since getting back into the gym full-time. Definitely still loves the sport and wants to go for it, but not sure if she wants the time commitment for the next year and a half plus. We'll see!

  6. So, is that a baby Bross training beam side by side with Nastia at the beginning of that first video? If so, I'm shocked that NBC hasn't exploited it more, what with their constant need to remind us that Nastia and Carly came from THE SAME GYM as her...

  7. A nasty mean gymnast attracts nasty mean fans. That's it.

  8. She's looking really good!

    I agree that her AA days are probably over, but I hope she makes a go of it for bars and beam. She has to know she'll probaby make the team if she can get a decent bars routine back.

  9. It must be saying something that she could still be the US best bar worker!

    Geez, did Shawn Johnson kill your mom? This topic has nothing to do wit SJ. Stop being disgusting and grow up!

  11. Yay! This is exciting. When was this? It seems mid-Summer 2010 or so. Clearly some time has passed since then. Good for both of them (and Alicia) for keeping pretty quiet and seeing where things go.

    Whatever, I for one always liked the Shawn vs. Nastia stuff. 2009 and 2010 were dull USAG wise. We got spoiled last quad with those two plus Alicia and Chellsie. At least 7:11 thinks they'll both make it! That's kind of nice.

  12. 7:11, stop talking about who's hot. Superficial crap.

    I'm sure the first few months of Nastia's comeback will be the toughest. As she's working to get back into shape, the skills won't come as easily.. I hope she sticks with it. We could definitely use the bars/beam routine, and I hope that it has been presented to her that way... I can't see her vaulting past a 1.5, if that, and I hope she's not too disappointed by that. She was just never going to be that power gymnast.

  13. I heard the same thing as anon above. I also heard Nastia trains bars and some beam and that is about it. I also heard she is out of the gym more then in it. Stay tuned.

  14. Good for her. She needs to ease back into training for the first year and get physically strong. Otherwise she'll pull a Paul Hamm - it wasn't his broken hand but his shoulder that made his 2008 comeback a bust. He came back too quickly and his body just broke down.
