Gymnast Olivia Dunne Asks Fans To ‘Be Respectful’ Following Ruckus At Meet

  • Olivia Dunne is asking her fans to “be respectful” to fellow competitors following a wild scene at LSU’s season-opening loss to Utah on Friday.
  • In a tweet posted Sunday afternoon, the LSU gymnast — who is regarded as one of the most influential college athletes — wrote, “I will always appreciate and love the support from you guys, but if you come to a meet, I want to ask you to please be respectful of the other gymnasts and the gymnastics community as we are just doing our job.”
  • Fans did not hold back their support for the 20-year-old gymnast at the Jon M. Huntsman Center on Friday in Salt Lake City, where they held up Dunne-centric signs even though she wasn’t in the lineup.
