Plus, Nastia gives HollywoodLife.com her inspirational philosophy for overcoming some of life’s biggest struggles. (Listen up! She knows what she’s talking about.)

Do you want to be as good at gymnastics as five-time Olympic medalist Nastia Liukin? Me too, and even though I know it’s never going to happen, at least Nastia’s new venture can help us get close. She’s teaming up with Fisher-Price to launch the Fantastic Gymnastics Dora doll — yes, the same Dora of anti-swiping, pro-exploring fame — which teaches kids (and the rest of us, of course) how to crush splits, floor routines and pretty much everything else.

Nastia, 22, chatted with HollywoodLife.com about her involvement with the intrepid “Explorer,” how she rose above her recent disappointment at the Olympic trials, and who she’s got her eye on during the current London Olympic Games.
