Will his Olympic gold medal be a chick magnet for Evan Lysacek? It doesn’t matter — his girlfriend Nastia Liukin has one of her own.
]]>People that they are indeed an item. Lysacek and Liukin have been dating since last summer, though they met in the fall of 2008 while performing for the Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular NBC special.
Liukin has been in Vancouver this past week to cheer Lysacek on in his quest for a gold medal in men’s figure skating — a goal he accomplished on Thursday, Feb. 18. Liukin took home her own Olympic medals in women’s gymnastics at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing. Liukin won the gold in women’s all-around, a silver in the team competition, balance beam, uneven bars and a bronze on the floor exercise.
That’s a lot of Olympic hardware. If they end up together for good … no pressure on their kids or anything.
Our first question is: What does Evan’s ex-girlfriend, ice dancer Tanith Belbin, think about her replacement?
Our second question is: In the Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular on NBC, were the skating and gymnastics combined? Because that we’d watch.
