I love Nastia Liukin, and I think that she’ll be great on Gossip Girl, which is like my favorite show. It’s great that all of her hard work has paid off, and she should pursue a career in fashion because her gymnastic outfits are gorgeous and she looks good in lots of clothes.

I think when the writer says, “A coveted gold” what they really mean is “THE” coveted gold of the All Around Olympic Champion!

Nastia Liukin is THE OLYMPIC CHAMPION!
