Olivia Dunne is truly giving her final NCAA season her all. The LSU gymnast and TikTok sensation just shared the most impressive meet day footage with her 7.9 million followers, and we’re totally in awe of her flawless moves.

The 21-year-old first stepped foot into a gymnasium at the age of 3, and today, she is the highest-paid female college athlete in the country. Last Friday, the Tigers defeated Texas Woman’s University with a score of 198.425 - 194.725, bringing them up to the No. 2 spot in the league, just a fraction of a point behind the University of Oklahoma.

The SI Swimsuit model, who traveled to Puerto Rico with the brand for last year’s issue and Portugal for her rookie appearance in the 60th anniversary magazine, nailed her floor routine in a recent video. The New Jersey native, who is dating MLB Pittsburgh Pirates player Paul Skenes, donned her signature sparkly purple-and-silver leotard featuring a black mesh back panel, as well as meet day full-glam and a cute braided up-do with a bow.

The Nautica and Vuori ambassador rolled, tumbled, flipped, danced and perfectly stuck her landing before yelling, running and jumping with joy to celebrate the clean, impressive sequence.

“Best feeling,” Dunne captioned the March 11 video.

“livvy too smooth,” one fan commented.

“how don’t you get dizzy,” another curiously asked.

“That was so smooth and flawless! Congratulations!” someone else gushed.

LSU is set to face off against North Carolina on Friday, March 15, before heading to the SEC Championships on March 23.
