Nastia Liukin Beam Training
There is plenty of hope! This was filmed for Universal Sports' Countdown to London, which airs on a network no one gets anymore.
Beam is my favorite event to watch Nastia on and her new combination is stunning. Nastia returns to camp this weekend after sitting out previous camps with a nagging shoulder issue.
I was very irritated with Nastia when she half-heartedly competed in 2009 despite telling us otherwise. It is clear that she has been in the gym and is much more serious, focused, trained and fit than we've seen her since Beijing. If there is anyone I want to make the Olympics, it's Nastia. (I'm pulling for Maroney and Gabby too.)
Let the troll wars begin.
