Nastia Liukin Announces Comeback
The full story from Nancy Armour.
The story from IG2.
There is a reason Nastia's been shrinking over the last few months. Note that USA Gymnastics paid for Nastia to go to boot camp prior to Nationals and found her a gym to train in in Japan on the days she doesn't have to be at the arena to watch the women compete as the FIG Athlete Rep. She has even been doing some tumbling to keep her options open and return to form.
With Nastia's competitiveness and her father's insane drive, this will be a comeback to remember. Nastia returns to two-a-day workouts when she returns from Japan. Once she and her father are giving one another the icy Russian silent treatment in training, we will know just how likely medals are.
