Olivia Dunne shows off ‘new skills’ for senior LSU gymnastics season

New year, new Olivia Dunne.

The LSU gymnastics star, who is the NCAA’s highest-earning female athlete, showed off a seemingly fresh take on her vault routine in a video she posted to Instagram on Friday.

“Hey seniors can play new skills too,” captioned Dunne, who has 4.4 million Instagram followers.

Dunne, 20, has become a name, image and likeness (NIL) sensation since the NCAA allowed athletes to take advantage of it, reportedly earning seven figures.

She will begin her fourth and final season with LSU in the spring.

Dunne specializes in uneven bars and earned All-American honors in his freshman season.

Last year, Dunne averaged an impressive 9.788 on the test for the season and a season-high 9.850 at the SEC Championships.

Dunne recently began her modeling career, making her debut in the prestigious Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

She posed in a variety of sultry looks on the beach during the photo shoot.

“When people look at my Sports Illustrated photos, I want them to remember that you can have the best of both worlds,” Dunne, who debuted SI Swimsuit magazine in 2023, said in a video that she recorded for the photo shoot.

“You can be an athlete, you can be in school, you can be a model, but you can have the best of both worlds – and you can be a strong, independent woman while doing it all.”

Dunne, who is dating famed Pirate prospect Paul Skenes who was the No. 1 pick in the 2023 MLB Draft, was one of only two athletes featured in the SI photo op, along with the basketball star LSU Angel Reese.

“As a female athlete, I hope I can bring attention to how amazing college sports are and how tough college athletics are,” Dunne told the outlet. “People don’t see [behind the scenes] every day of my university sports activities, and it takes a lot of time.

“In gymnastics, a lot of people only watch the Olympics every four years, and I feel like I was able to use my platform to bring an audience to college gymnastics, and people are starting to see how all these gymnasts are amazing. »
