Olivia Dunne is a star gymnast and she knows it. The LSU Tiger, who begins the 2024 NCAA competition season with a meet against Ohio State University later today, isn’t afraid to show off and laugh at her mistakes.

As for gymnastics wipeouts, they are super common in an intense sport that often makes it seem like Dunne is defying gravity. The New Jersey native, however, takes all her fails like a champ, and even shares some with her 12.5 million TikTok and Instagram followers.

The SI Swimsuit model shared a hilarious, yet super impressive video of herself nailing her bars and floor routine. The beam, however, was her biggest enemy on this particular day. In one segment of the clip, the 21-year-old had her front foot on the beam and her other leg in the air. She leaned back to rest her suspended leg on the beam and missed it completely, lost her balance, hit her butt and landed on the floor.

Dunne included a few more variations of her doing certain tricks, completely missing the beam and landing face- or stomach-first on the mat.

“Beam: 1 Livvy: 0 #gymnastics #fail #lsu #tumbling,” she captioned the Instagram reel.

“Ouch! That’s going to leave a mark,” one fan commented.

“You fell for the beam like everyone else fell for you ❤️❤️🔥🔥,” another gushed.

“Man! That first one may have hurt!” someone else noted.

“It hurts even to look at it 😮,” one person chimed.
