Gymnast Nastia Liukin Caught In Bathrobe With Bedtime Pizza

Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin has been chowing down pizza slices in a skimpy bathrobe, and it's getting caught on camera. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, who faced an anorexia storm in October 2020, returned to the "post a pic of trend" for her 1 million Instagram followers last night, sharing a never-before-seen snap of herself and just how cheesy she likes that pizza. Nastia, who celebrated her 31st birthday with donuts, was definitely proving that gymnasts don't live off rabbit food. Check it out below.

Fans Ask, She Delivers

Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia makes headlines for those "post a pic of" shots - 2021 has already seen the 2008 all-around champion clapping back after a troll asked to see her "gross skinny chicken legs."

Hiding the legs, but not her gorgeous good looks, Nastia's snap last night showed her lounging around on a white bed and looking ever so cozy in her fluffy white bathrobe. The appetite was all there, though, with Liukin having a whole takeout pizza box to herself, plus one slice lifted to her mouth.

Nastia, confirming the photo was a "throwback to NY Fashion Week," offered no other context, but if you know this girl, you know she eats. Liukin, accused of fueling herself with only black coffee in the mornings as fans continue to lash out, has been steadily shutting down the shamers, one roast chicken at a time. She even hit up fast-food chain Shake Shack for her birthday last year.

Raised by two Olympic gymnast parents, Nastia was also told, by her mother, to "have a cookie" if she wants one.

Speaking to The Cut in 2016, four years after her 2012 retirement, Nastia recalled wise words. "I also remember my mom telling me, “If you want a cookie, have a cookie.” Because then you’re going to get to a point where just like you want ten cookies and you’re going to eat ten," she said, adding:

"Yeah, maybe don’t have a cookie every single day, but if you want one, then have one."

Skills For Life

Nastia was just 22 when she retired, and she's admitted that quitting the beam so young was tough. The gymnast stated gaining 10-20 pounds after calling it a day, but she's found her feet and certainly doesn't seem to have kept that weight on. 

"I love going to Pilates and I feel great after it, and yeah, it might be hard to wake up some mornings but at the end … you know that feeling, and it’s worth it," she added.
