LSU star gymnast Olivia Dunne made waves over the weekend by posting a patriotic video while attending a NASCAR race in which she declared that her pronouns were “USA.”
The 20-year-old All-American athlete has more than 7.6 million followers on TikTok and more than 4.2 million followers on Instagram. Due to her enormous popularity, she makes millions of dollars per year in endorsement deals — more than any other female college athlete — while continuing to compete at LSU.
The video that she posted on Sunday already has more than four million views on TikTok alone and has nearly half a million likes.
In the video, Dunne, standing next to two young uniformed U.S. Army soldiers at the race, states: “My pronouns are U-S-A!”

Dunne, who was also a 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, had a VIP pass for the race at Nashville Superspeedway, according to the New York Post.
She shared an image of herself with a headset on at the race that featured the caption, “Start your engines…”
NASCAR even shared a photo of Dunne posing for a picture with NASCAR driver Chase Elliott.
“Welcome to NASCAR @livvydunne!” the professional racing association wrote.
