Olivia Dunne is clearly ready for the summer season. The LSU gymnast donned a black two-piece swimsuit by Vuori Clothing for not one but two beachside TikTok videos this week. 

In the most recent post, the 20-year-old college athlete started her video from behind as she playfully looked over her shoulder and waved the camera on as she began running toward the shoreline from the sand. The clip then cut to Dunne twirling around with her arms held above her head, stretched toward the blue sky above.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit model then showed off her athletic skills and transitioned from a handstand into a backflip. After sticking a perfect landing, she sweetly blew a kiss to the camera before moving out of frame.

“Meet me at the beach! @Vuori Clothing #foryou #gymnastics,” Dunne wrote in her caption. Plenty of her 7.4 million followers on the platform left feedback in the comments.

“Livvy we on for dinner at 7?” one person asked, to which Dunne responded, “Sushi perhaps ?”

“Amazing 😍,” another person wrote of Dunne’s gymnastics prowess.

“If a gymnast went to the beach and didn’t do a backflip did they really go to the beach 🤔,” one fan quipped.
