LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne loves to share behind-the-scenes footage from her practice sessions. And Dunne, who just began the 2024 competition season—her final one as a college student—clearly has been putting in the work during training.
The SI Swimsuit model, who was photographed for her magazine debut in Puerto Rico last year and reunited with photographer Ben Watts in Portugal for her 2024 shoot, showed off her talent on the beam in her latest Instagram post.
She started at the foot of the beam, did two backward flips and one more without using her hands at all, then transitioned to some clean dance moves with her arms before finally leaping into a forward aerial flip.
The New Jersey native‘s teammates cheered her on several times, as she completed her routine alongside Kacey Musgraves’s chill, country pop track “Golden Hour.”
“some beam work from today!:) #gymnastics #tumbling,” the 21-year-old captioned the video shared with her 4.8 million followers on Thursday.
“I find watching these calming anyone else or just me?,” Alexis Lovejoy commented.
“chefs kiss🤌🏼,” teammate, bff and roommate Elena Arenas added.
“Wow😍😍,” Kristal Ruiz wrote.
Dunne, who is dating professional baseball player Paul Skenes, and the No. 8-ranked LSU Tigers are set to compete at the University of Missouri on Friday.
