LSU star Olivia Dunne somehow had her best year yet in 2023. Despite coming in as arguably the most popular college athlete around, the star gymnast saw her stock reach previously untapped heights over the past 12 months.
Not only is she the biggest name in all of – pro and collegiate – gymnastics, but Dunne has also penetrated the larger cultural zeitgeist in a truly meaningful way. She is no longer just a sports celebrity, she is real celebrity.
These days, any time she does anything it causes an absolutely massive stir. And this week proved to be no exception to the rule.
On Friday, Dunne took to social media to share a photo of herself in the bathtub:
To say it was a huge hit would be an understatement. Be it for wearing her boyfriend’s shirt and nothing else, her racy hotel room video, or her leaked private photos, Dunne is always trending for something or other nowadays.
This week’s bathtub photo was just par for the course.
What is also interesting about Dunne is that not even getting a boyfriend has dampened her star power. For a lot of female stars, when that occurs, male fans tap out. That didn’t happen here, despite all the photos of Dunne and her beau unable to keep their hands off each other.
Big picture, Dunne has been an instrumental part of the Tigers’ gymnastics program for years now.
There is no reason to assume that 2024 will be any different.

Barring something crazy happening, she will continue to be the biggest name in all of college sports.
Will Dunne be able to lead LSU to a gymnastics championship in 2024? Time will tell.
