Who is nastia liukin dating now
In July 2007, although she was still recovering from her injury, she returned to competition as a member of the American team for the Pan Am Games in Rio de Janeiro.
She competed only on bars and beam, contributing to the team's gold-medal finish and winning individual silver medals in the uneven bars and balance beam finals. She posted the highest score of the entire meet on bars and the second highest score on beam on the second day of competition, winning the senior bars title for the third year in a row and placing second on beam.
She enrolled as a freshman international business major at Southern Methodist University in January 2008, and took a leave from classes to concentrate on preparations for the 2008 Olympic Games.
She returned to campus in spring 2009, but her travel schedule and professional commitments caused her to withdraw before the end of the semester.

However, at the end of her beam routine, her foot slipped while she was setting up her dismount, prompting her to change her usual skill, a two and a half twisting salto, to a simple back tuck. In October 2011, Liukin announced that she was returning to gymnastics with the hopes of making a second Olympic team. She represented the United States at three World Championships and one Olympic Games. 😱 @Nastia Liukin's performance in Beijing 2008 got the highest score in women's uneven bars at the Olympics since the new scoring system was introduced at these Games.#On This Day pic.twitter.com/pzhmf Pw B76 QUE MOMENTO!
