Gymnast Olivia Dunne Stuns in New 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit' Photos

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit recently revealed gymnast Olivia Dunne as one of the stars of its upcoming 2023 edition, and now the magazine has released a new series of four exclusive photos with the collegiate athlete.

Dunne, a gymnast at LSU, is the highest-earning female athlete in the NCAA, with 11 million followers across platforms and endorsements from Vuori, American Eagle, and Plantfuel. She counts star gymnasts Aly Raisman and Nastia Liukin as mentors, and says she wants people to know more about the gymnastics world.

“As a female athlete, I hope I can bring attention to how amazing college sports are and how hard college athletics are. People don’t see [behind the scenes] every day of my college athletics, and it's very time consuming,” she explained. "In gymnastics, a lot of people only watch the Olympics every four years, and I feel like I’ve been able to use my platform to bring an audience to college gymnastics, and people are starting to see how amazing all these gymnasts are.”

The New Jersey native was photographed by Ben Watts in Puerto Rico for the new spread. She talked to the magazine about pursuing a diverse set of passions.

"I want to show young girls that you can have it all, and you don’t need to choose between whatever it is you’re passionate about," she said. "You can be passionate about music. You don’t need to pick and choose. You can do it all and be successful. I think you need to set your own expectations for success and dream big."
