LSU secured a win on Friday against Alabama and held on to their No. 8 ranking. Star athlete Olivia Dunne returned to the competition after taking more than a month off due to a foot injury.

She showed off her super impressive bar routine to her 7.2 million TikTok followers.

“back to business:) #foryou #lsu #gymnastics,” she captioned the Feb. 26 post, which garnered more than 1.3 million views in two days.

The video was set to “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” by Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.

Dunne, who is the highest-paid female college athlete, wore a gorgeous sparkly LSU-emblazoned leotard featuring light purple mesh long sleeves and a dark purple bedazzled bodice. Her blonde hair was tied up in a bun with a purple scrunchie.

At the end of the video, one teammate put a gold crown on her head as Dunne stuck her tongue out to show her exhaustion from the tricky routine.

She also posted a series of professional photos on Instagram to celebrate the win against the No. 9-ranked Crimson Tide.

“they’ve always said the bars at Bama were fun…,” Dunne wrote under the post she shared with her 3.7 million IG followers.
