Following Nationals, Liukin was named to the American team for the World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, where she competed all-around in the team qualifying round and on bars and beam in the finals.
Liukin's score for her bars routine in team finals was a 16.375, the highest score of the day and, in the end, the entire World Championships.
In spite of a 16.100 on bars, the highest score of the day from any competitor on any event, she finished the competition in fifth place.
In the event finals, however, Liukin rallied and regained her world champion title on the balance beam with a score of 16.025.
The team recovered from this and other mistakes to finish first overall with 184.400, nearly a point ahead of the silver-medal Chinese.
Liukin's struggles with the balance beam continued in the all-around final, where she fell from the apparatus during her flight series.
However, at the end of her beam routine, her foot slipped while she was setting up her dismount, prompting her to change her usual skill, a two and a half twisting salto, to a simple back tuck.
While she lost credit for her dismount, she also avoided a deduction for a fall, and earned a 15.175.
Liukin's first meet of the 2008 season was the American Cup in New York City, where she defeated 2007 winner Shawn Johnson to regain her title.She continued through the rest of the competition and, despite the incomplete bars set, finished 15th, which landed her one of the final spots on the U. Her bars routine in team finals scored a 15.7 and helped the U. Liukin's ankle injury required surgery, and the recovery period kept her out of both national and international competition for much of the year.In July 2007, although she was still recovering from her injury, she returned to competition as a member of the American team for the Pan Am Games in Rio de Janeiro.Liukin updates a blog on her official website and regularly posts on Twitter as @Nastia Liukin.
She has a line of GK Elite leotards and grips and a line of pink gymnastics equipment from AAI.
Liukin performed second on balance beam, matching her qualifying score of 15.975.
