What Do Maria Sharapova and Nastia Liukin Have in Common? A Lot, Actually

Much like a 17 year-old, newly crowned Wimbledon champion did, new Olympic All Around champion Nastia Liukin is going to get swamped with media and sponsors when she returns home. The gold medal also won Nastia a cover shoot with Maria Sharapova shot in New York City just after the U.S. Open. And Nastia is apparently a fan of the Mash,

“When she got an e-mail from Sharapova inviting her to do the shoot, it was about as big as winning the gold medal,” said her agent, Evan Morgenstein. “Nastia really looks up to her.”

Liukin is also Russian born, but came to the U.S. as a tender age of two. This is incredibly coincidental for me as I was using Nastia and her friendly rivalry with the world’s most adorable human, Shawn Johnson, to fill the void created by the crappy state of women’s tennis, mostly due to Maria’s absence.
