Evan Lysacek & Nastia Liukin: Gold Medal Mates

Evan Lysacek shows off his gold medal and puts his arm around his sweetheart, gymnast Nastia Liukin.

The 24-year-old figure skater has been dating Nastia, 20, since last summer, he tells People. “We became good friends and have become really close since then,” Evan shared.

Nastia is currently in Vancouver cheering on Team USA – check out her adventures up north on her Twitter!

“Enjoy this amazing time of your life,” Nastia tweeted to Evan yesterday. “You deserve every second of it!”

# 7

Seriously, i thought he was the only non gay looking one there. Which is hard with all those ridiculous stuff they wear, but his was the most tame, and his behaviour stood out as different from others. His gf is cute.

they are so cute together

at least he found a gold medalist beard.

I don’t know if this guy is gay or not and I don’t care. but there was clearly a strong gay vibe going on… is that a surprise with the whole gay agenda?

So “become really close” translates to dating? Not always you know.

I am amazed at the fact that anyone is surprised about the “gay” factor in men’s figure skating!!! LOL LOL What rock have you been living under??? The only one I know who isn’t is Plushenko, who is married with kids.

@kyle:

Clearly…please..; )

the winter olympics sucks
and im pretty sure all the guys who do figure skating are gay
cant believe that girl hasnt found out yet

So everyone was talking about how he was a closet gay on Thursday night and 4 days later he comes out with a girlfriend? Suspicious. Maybe he isn’t but I totally got that vibe from him on Thursday, from the overdone orange spraytan to the facial expressions. I won’t even mention the outfit since I guess they all have to wear something ridciulous and emasculating.

I’m sorry…I try to be open minded and not judge others and I could care less either way but he pings my gaydar. And that snake outfit he had on? Come on now…until we see these two tonguing on tmz I’m not buying it.

seriously???? “We became good friends and have become really close since then,” —– sounds like his PR person put that **** in his mouth…..I bet we’ll be seeing him on the cover of People Magazine in a few years declairing he was gay all along….kind of like Clay Aiken did

give me a break he should not have won the russian did a quad triple combo, evan did not even do a quad – mens skating will not even be an olympic sport if judging does not change!!!

he’s not gay but he’s def not dating this girl……He deserves much better….

Jessie, that was a silly comment. You don’t need a quad to win a figure skating competition any more than you need a slam dunk to win a basketball game. It’s the total program that counts and Lysacek skated a better program.

I watched both Lysacek and Pleshenko skate their routines and Lysacek was better overall and deserved to win the gold. You can’t soley base the outcome on jumps alone. What about footwork, spins and the overall flow with the way the program as an entirety flows together to make one complete piece? You have to have the complete package, not just be a good jumper who can do quads. It’s just not enough. A skater has to be well rounded, not a power jumper. I like it this way and it’s the way it should stay.
