It’s Valentine’s Day, and the LSU gymnastics squad is showing their love for each other in the cutest, most Gen Z way possible.

The NCAA athletes, including two-time SI Swimsuit model Olivia Dunne, who has posed for photographer Ben Watts in Puerto Rico and Portugal for her ’23 and ’24 features with the brand, made each other sweet purple Valentine’s Day cards and handed them out in the gymnasium to honor the occasion.

Each card featured a gorgeous media day pic of a teammate (or two) in their signature sparkly leotards, as well as a gymnastics-related pick up line. “Will you beam my Valentine?” one simply read, while another said “You have no deductions,” in reference to scores and points during a meet.

“I can’t Liv without you,” read one that Dunne’s teammate gave to the 21-year-old. On the card, the she was pictured in a heart-shaped frame with a gold crown dangling off her fingers.

The women cheered, gushed and repeatedly said “of course” as they were each asked by another teammate to be their Valentine.

“Spreading some love to each other this Valentine’s day 🫶 ,” the official LSU gymnastics Instagram account captioned the heartwarming video on Feb. 14.

“This made me smile like a fool. 🫠,” a fan commented.

“Y’all are the CUTEST 💕,” another wrote.

“This is adorable all their reactions are priceless ❤👏,” someone else pointed out.

“gotta ask paul if it’s ok first tho…,” one person joked in reference to the New Jersey native’s boyfriend, Pittsburgh Pirates player Paul Skenes.
