Olivia Dunne is bringing us along for a day in her life. The LSU gymnast, who is the highest-paid female college athlete in the country, is also a social media influencer—she has a following of 7.8 million on TikTok alone.

The 21-year-old, who is dating MLB player Paul Skenes, recently took to her Instagram platform and walked her 4.6 million fans through her “day off as a D1 athlete :).”

The New Jersey native began her day bright and early at 5:30 a.m., when she woke up and showed off her Tiger pride in a gray-and-purple LSU sweat set. She headed to the bathroom and brushed her teeth and hair and arrived at substance training at 6 a.m.

She and her teammates grabbed some coffee—her go-to order is a vanilla latte with oat milk—before beginning 7 a.m. FRC training. The rest of her morning included various appointments and treatments for her torn labrum.

Around noon, the Livvy Fund creator got a “literal life-changing massage” before going to the practice gym for conditioning at 2 p.m. She donned a black tank top and biker shorts set from Vuori, an activewear brand for which she is an ambassador. Her last task was an early casual dinner with her teammates in the campus dining hall.

“And to finish my day I went home and got washed up for bed and some schoolwork,” the SI Swimsuit model, who was photographed in Puerto Rico for the 2023 issue and Portugal for her ’24 rookie feature, explained.

Dunne and the Tigers are set to face off against Ohio State University this Friday, Jan. 5, for the team’s first gymnastics meet of the season.
