Ask Nastia


Nastia Liukin took over the Gymnastics City USA yesterday when she was promoting the Olympics Trials taking place in San Jose June 28th – July 1st this summer. A few tidbits from her chat where fans asked her questions, some she answered, some she did not, nothing all too interesting.

  • She is training 3 events and will determine which she will compete closer to the summer
  • Despite being Olympic Champion Nastia must go through the trial process like the members of the National Team
  • She hopes to first compete in the Secret Classic in Chicago at the end of May
  • No more NYC for Nastia, it seems she is knuckling down and states she hasn’t planned to the Big Apple until after the Olympics
  • Hardest skill to learn: Ono on Uneven Bars (also her favourite to perform on bars)
  • She has found the most difficult thing to accomplish since returning to training is her endurance and strength on bars
  • Nastia did in fact train a laid out Jaeger after the Olympics
  • Her favourite skill on beam is Onodi
