The collegiate gymnastics season is now underway — and the sport's current queen (at least, as it pertains to influence) started off her senior campaign in stunning fashion.
Livvy Dunne — LSU Tigers gymnast, social media darling, and top NIL earner — made her season floor debut Friday during the third-ranked Tigers' opening day meet against the 14th-ranked Ohio State squad. And she delivered an excellent performance that earned her a 9.875 score on the judges' scorecards.

The LSU gymnastics team (which placed fourth at the NCAA championships last April) went on to win the match against Ohio State by a tight final score of 196.975 to 196.775.
Tigers head coach Jay Clark seemed impressed with his team's performance: "All in all, I'm happy with the start. It was solid. We went against a very good team tonight who had nothing to lose walking in here and we had to fight our way out of a jam and I'm proud of the way we fought. That has become a hallmark of our team."
Dunne has been locked in for this season debut for some time now. Last week, she posted photos from previous meets on Instagram, with the caption, "There is business to be stood on. #meetweekmonday".
