Olivia Dunne might not be competing right now due to an injury, but she’s still keeping up with her flexibility—and with her TikTok audience. The LSU gymnast shared a fun video Monday of herself holding a handstand for 10 seconds and then transitioning to a midair split, all to the sound of the platform’s “Splash Challenge.” She wore a black leotard and tightened her ponytail before hopping upside down on her palms.

“torn labrums are screaming #foryou #gymnastics #lsu,” she captioned the post that garnered 4.7 million views in 16 hours.

The labrum is a soft tissue rim surrounding the joints in the shoulder.

“No way you doing that on two torn labrum’s,” someone quipped in the comments, to which Dunne replied with a clarification: “and a torn bicep :(.”

Dunne has not competed yet this season. LSU is currently ranked No. 8 in the nation after narrowly losing to Arkansas last Friday by a score of 197.475-197.250. The team will face Georgia on Friday.

On Jan. 20, the 20-year-old shared a hilarious TikTok of herself rolling around the team’s locker room on a knee scooter and in a brace.

“burnin rubber” she captioned the post set to the sound of “Ridin’” by Chamillionaire.

“They see me rollin’ / They hatin’,” the rapper sang while Dunne nodded her head. “Patrollin’ and tryna catch me ridin’ dirty.”

She wore a sparkly LSU-emblazoned leotard and big black sunglasses in the slow-motion video.
