The pair first met while performing on NBC’s “Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular” in 2008. But it wasn’t until they attended the ESPY Awards together last July that the relationship started to heat up between the skater and the gymnast.
“It’s just a friendship that has developed into something more,” Lysacek’s rep told Us Weekly.
And Liukin herself confirmed to People magazine that the two were dating.
“Even though we’re not in the same sport,” Liukin explained, “we got to connect at the same level because there’s nothing like the Olympics. It was nice to be on other side of things and be the support system.”
And Lysacek appreciates her support. “She been so helpful to me,” he said. “She has been through it herself. If I’m having a bad day, she tells me to have faith and to keep going… And when she tells me things are going to be fine, I really believe it.”
