Artistic gymnast Olivia Dunne is big-time getting the thumbs-up as she delivers flawless beach gymnastics on TikTok - and she did it in a cute red bikini. The 18-year-old Louisiana State University gymnast, who has been perfecting her art since the age of 3, is fresh from a wowing video showing off her "beach-nastics," with the footage seemingly explaining why the blonde is the most-followed NCAA athlete on social media.

The footage was shared with Olivia's 4.3 million TikTok followers. See it below.

Bringing Back 'Beach-Nastics'


Scroll for the video. Olivia, who is also fast gaining followers on Instagram, updated with both real-time and slow-motion footage. The flexible star, who has clocked 2.2 million views for the video, was seen solo and near lapping shores while casually back-flipping around and delivering an upside-down split as she used her super-strong arms to support herself.

The red bikini wardrobe likely came welcome for fans, with Olivia seen arching her back with a raised arms finale at the end - like a true gymnast.

Why She Started Gymnastics


Livvy, seemingly all set for superstardom and not even needing the gymnastics to gain followers, introduces herself via her website. She writes:

"I started gymnastics when i was three years old because I wanted a sparkly pink leotard. But, little did I know what an exciting future was ahead of me. When I was five years old, I was invited to try out for the pre-team at my gym ENA. Once I started competing, i knew I had a passion for the sport." Scroll for more photos.
