A gymnast since she was a child, Olivia is now one of the top earners in college sports.

She has five million followers on TikTok and two million on Instagram.

And Louisiana State star Olivia often documents her lavish lifestyle.

NCAA rules meant the US national team star couldn’t make money from her internet fame.

However, that policy was dropped in June 2021 as collegiate athletes are now allowed to capitalize on their image and name.

That prompted Olivia to sign up with a talent agency, WME Sports, and she landed a sponsorship deal with a sportswear brand.

She’s picked and chosen her endorsement deals, but the New York Post reports that she’s already made more than a million dollars.

She told the New York Post, “I just want to be a role model for young girls. I want to lead by example and send a message that we are more than just our sport. This is very important to me .

“I don’t try to pressure myself and I don’t try to compare myself to other people. I just go with the flow and it’s very exciting.

“At the moment it’s about finding a balance between school, social media and gymnastics. All of these are top priorities in my life.

“I think it’s really a special time right now with the NIL transition, especially for women’s sports, because there aren’t many professional leagues after college for women.”

She recently went viral for presenting “two Ls in one night” to a college football player.

Olivia had a brilliant response when mentioned by Mississippi State player Jordan Morant.

Morant’s team faced the LSU Tigers in a college football showdown earlier this month.

Before the game, Safety Morant tried to get his shot with Olivia.

He said in a TikTok video, “If we play LSU tomorrow and Livy Dunne is out there somewhere.”

But the gymnast reacted immediately, saying, “Good luck, but geaux tigahs.”

LSU Tigers beat Mississippi State Bulldogs 31-16.

And Morant later joked, “Two Ls in one night.”
