Nastia Liukin: 5-Time Olympic Medalist, Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker, Angel Investor
Nastia Liukin became part of gymnastics elite when she took home the gold medal for the All-Around event at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. After retiring from the sport at the age of 22, Nastia set out to make her mark on the gymnastics world and beyond. She began commentating with NBC, solidifying her position as one of gymnastics best analysts. She started a tech platform to empower the next generation of female athletes by connecting them to their mentors, sports psychologists, nutritionists, college recruiters, and her Olympic peers. She created and designed sold out gymnastics leotard collections. And, she founded one of the most coveted Olympic qualifying events in gymnastics, The Nastia Liukin Cup. Tapping into the loyal fan base she has cultivated over the last ten years, Nastia launched her influencer business, which has led to collaborations with world-leading brands and retailers such as Nike, Sephora, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Netflix, Visa, and more. Recently, Nastia parlayed her love for beauty and skincare into a collaboration with Volition Beauty—a celery-powered moisturizer—that is currently being sold online at Sephora and in all Sephora North America stores. This upcoming Olympic year, Nastia will head to Tokyo with NBC to commentate the women's gymnastics events throughout the games.
