i’m so glad she won the all-around competition. I thought she was way more marketable than the shawn johnson. good for her on cashing in on her gold medal!

She looks like Heather Mills (a.k.a. former Mrs. Paul McCartney) evil twin sister. Olympic great? Yes. Looker? Nope. Good for her on cashing in on her 15 minutes tho.

her real name is Anastasia…

love her, she is so pretty. I am so happy to see her getting all these opportunities and endorsements. she is a beautiful girl with lovely gymnastics. I hope she continues on to 2012 so she can establish herself as the most accomplished american gymnast ever

Love her, she’s amazing.

This is awesome. She’s getting a lot of publicity, that she deserves. And she’s crazy pretty!

She has HUGE hands for only being 5’4″. I think I noticed her feet were big too. I”m 5’4″ and my hands and feet are miniature compared to hers. Weird.

Why are all the gymnasts hair so thin? It must be from wearing it in a tight pony all the time.

Shawn Johnston has the Oretga “It makes my Taco Pop” Commerical.

i probably wouldn’t watch the episodes of gossip girl if nastia was in it. She’s being immature about the whole Olympics issue about China cheating, and implying “strong comments”

“Maria Sharapova invited me”

Maria is such a joke right now. She has time to attend fashion shows but not play in tournaments. Oh, that’s right – the Williams sisters are kicking ass, no wonder she has a ‘shoulder injury’.

Yay, I’ve always liked her better than Shawn Johnson. They are both better role models then what most girls see these days.

Nastia Liukin’s got legs up to her eyes!!! Can’t wait to see her appear on Gossip Girl~

all you people who are not gymnast dont know how hard she and all of the olympic gymnast have worked to get that far. They are all amazing.

Nastia is so cool and awesome, i’m so happy she made it as far as she did. i really hope she goes to the 2012 olympics!

Nasty Lickin’ good
