Olivia Dunne provides LSU gymnastics insight after an eventful career

Livvy Dunne joined the LSU gymnastics team in 2020 and has excelled in the uneven bars and floor exercises events since her debut. Unfortunately, she faced injuries that sidelined her for much of the 2022-23 season but she eventually made her way back to contribute to her talented squad.

Many fans know Dunne for her social media stardom. She has millions of followers across multiple platforms. In addition, she is one of the highest-earning NIL collegiate athletes, earning over $3.5 million annually. Moreover, Dunne has appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue two times.

In 2023, the issue highlighted her “all-academic” and “all-star” accolades as a Division 1 athlete. Then, Dunne was featured for her entrepreneurial prowess in the 2024 issue. The star collegiate gymnast has achieved a lot and added to her list after her team's NCAA title.

Dunne's collegiate career is coming to a close, and while she cherished her time as an athlete, she is relieved to get some rest. She gave fans insight into what she found most difficult during her time at LSU in an interview with ESPN's SportsCenter.

“Probably the conditioning. I don’t like lifting weights really. But I… it’s a love-hate relationship and I’ve learned to kind of love it this year because this has been the best physical shape I’ve been in since I’ve been in college. So it’s a love-hate relationship but I think that’s something I probably won’t miss,” Dunne said.

What Livvy Dunne will undoubtedly miss is the experiences she had with her teammates during her time in college. While her gymnastics chapter at LSU is over, she and her team get to celebrate their incredible NCAA title achievement.
