When Evan Lysacek won his Gold Medal Thursday night, Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin was one of the first to congratulate him via Twitter: "Ahhhhhhhhhhh! CONGRATS @EvanLysacek! SO incredibly proud of you!!!!! GO USA!!!!!!!!!!"

Nastia mentions Evan several times in her Twitter stream, and the two have been rumored to be a romantic item. But while the two have been photographed together several times and are obviously close, neither has talked about the relationship.

For what it's worth, Nastia lists her MySpace.com status as "single." Evan isn't the only Olympian whose love life has been investigated by fans during this year's Olympics. Johnny Weir has consistently declined to answer questions about his sexuality. In 2008, Weir told the New York Times: "There are some things I keep sacred. My middle name. Who I sleep with. And what kind of hand moisturizer I use."
