Gymnasts Shawn Johnson & Nastia Liukin Didn't Talk For Almost 8 Years & The Reason Why Is Totally On Us

Gymnasts Shawn Johnson & Nastia Liukin Didn't Talk For Almost 8 Years & The Reason Why Is Totally On Us

After the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, where gymnasts Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin won a ton of medals for Team USA – they stopped speaking to each other.

“Right after the Olympics, we kind of had like a falling out, but it wasn’t like anything between us,” Shawn shared in a new Youtube video the girls just released.

Nastia echoes her statement, “There wasn’t an incident, like ever.”

But what caused them to stop talking to each other and what looked like the end of their friendship was us: the media who decided that Nastia and Shawn were only supposed to be rivals. Not friends.

How awful is that? It’s stupid too. Nastia and Shawn were teenagers at the time and media was making them believe that they needed to hate each other. Don’t bring down this friendship, or any others please!

“Right after the Olympics, the entire world like plotted us against one another,” Shawn added. “As soon as all-around hit, it was like Nastia or Shawn. …We kind of felt like, well, they don’t want us to be friends. They won’t allow us to be friends.”

Nastia continued, “The more and more time that went on, I think we realized we wanted to fix it, but we almost like didn’t know how because it just had been so long. Shawn was the bigger person.”

After Shawn wrote Nastia a lengthy email while waiting for a flight, the friendship started to be rekindled.

We can’t even imagine if Nastia and Shawn hadn’t rekindled their friendship.

Nastia also hit back at naysayers who think their friendship is all for show.
