Nastia Liukin was the 2008 Olympic individual, all-around gold medalist, but that's not why she's in the news. It's been rumored that she's dating fellow Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysachek, which has everyone's curiosity piqued.
Not only that, but the 21-year-old is pretty cute. So with all of the mystery surrounding her, I thought I would do everyone a favor and pull together a collection of her hottest pictures on the internet for you to see for yourself just why Nastia Liukin matters.
Here are the two gold medalists in Vancouver after Lysacheck won his gold medal. Nastia was there the whole time to cheer him on. They look pretty cute and cozy.
Liukin has confirmed that they are in fact dating and didn't correct reporters when they called her Evan's girlfriend.
However, in an interview before the Olympics, Lysachek said he wasn't dating anyone and that his training was lonely. Then after the Olympics, he went further saying that Liukin and he were just good friends.
So Liukin says they're dating, Lysachek says they're not. Does Liukin have a little bit of crazy chick in her? I mean, just check out this picture of her. She seems totally capable of sending nude pictures to Lysachek to prove her love.
If you had any doubt of Liukin being a hottie, these pictures by Avolante should take it away in a hurry. She's got the face, the body, and some killer legs. Maybe Lysacheck should reconsider.
So she may be a little on the thin side, but Lysachek is a skater. I'm sure he appreciates a woman that he can flip through the air with ease.
Here Liukin reminds us that she's not just a pretty face, she's a world class gymnast... who apparently likes to practice on railroad tracks.
Liukin is actually part Russian and fluent in that language as well, but this pose in unmistakably American. And can I just say I am a huge fan of high heels, they make her legs look incredible.
Here's Liukin in action. As you can see, she's just a little bit flexible. Yet another reason we think Mr. Lysacheck should reconsider his stance.
Here's Liukin breaking out the floor routine. Not only does her body look hot there, but she's also got this very sexy glare going on. I'm starting to wonder why I didn't watch more of this.
Is it just me or is the dismount pose normally pretty boring, but Liukin makes it look like a hot pose with a sexy peek over her shoulder at you that says, "Yeah, I nailed it. You totally want me, don't you?"
Born in Russia, Liukin's family moved to America when she was two and a half and she's been competing for us her whole life. I, for one, am pretty happy about that.
Liukin definitely has a future in modeling. She knows how to move her body and, frankly, I want to see more of it.
Just look at this face. Does this seem like someone who could potentially be going all Swimfan on Evan Lysachek? Actually, yeah, it's possible. You just never know with women. Am I right fellas?
Here's another picture of Liukin striking a pose. Maybe I should take back that modeling comment. She seems to be having trouble keeping her face in the picture.
Proving that she looks good in more than just tights, Liukin got all glammed out and even — what's that? — broke out a little bit of cleavage. Almost unheard of for many gymnasts.
She may have been trying to blend into the carpet, but Liukin actually shines through with that sexy red dress that I'm having trouble getting out of my mind. Last chance Lysacheck.
Here's Liukin getting all thoughtful in her Avolate photo shoot. Maybe she's dreaming of Evan. That face kind of says, "You will be mine. Oh, yes. You will be mine."
Okay, I'm kind of done with these pictures. At least they show off her body a little bit. You have to admit she looks good in skin tight or barely hanging on. That's talent.
Again, Liukin rocking a little bit of cleavage in her sexy black and white dress at some event that I don't care enough about to find out what it is. But I do know I wouldn't have minded being her date.
Oh yeah, these colors don't run, baby!
Nothing more patriotic than a USA shirt and a short jean skirt.
