LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne earned a season-high score of 9.850 after her bars routine on March 18 during the SEC Championships. The No. 6 Tigers finished third in the meet and are headed to the NCAA championship at the end of the month.

Dunne shared a video of her impressive bars routine from this past weekend on TikTok.

“living the dream:) #foryou #lsu #gymnastics,” she captioned the March 20 post she shared with her 7.3 million followers on the video-based platform.

The 20-year-old wore a bedazzled purple-and-white long sleeved leotard with an open strappy back. Her long blonde locks were tossed up into a floppy bun.

“The actions in this video are performed by professionals or supervised by professionals,” an auto-generated warning read across the screen. “Do not attempt.”

Dunne started on one bar, completed a few spins and mid-air splits before leaping to another bar, flipping through the air and perfectly sticking her landing. She screamed with excitement before high fiving her coach, pumping her fists and running to her friends. Her teammates hugged her and one placed a gold crown on her head.

The team earned the second seed in the Denver Regional and will begin NCAA postseason competition on March 31 at Magness Arena.
