One name that has risen in the gymnastics world recently is Olivia Dunne. The 21-year-old sensation has set the world on fire with her impressive skills. Also known as “Livvy,” she has been one of LSU’s biggest names in the past few years. The gymnast also has a huge fan following on social media, further raising her stardom.
On top of all this, she is the highest-paid female athlete in the NCAA due to the Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) policy. All of this has resulted in her rising fame, which has also raised security concerns regarding her. She has also stopped attending classes on campus and later revealed her reason for doing so.
There have been some who have not been fond of her rising popularity. One such person tried to stalk her, which left the American gymnast afraid. While recalling the incident with the stalker, Dunne claimed this was the reason why she stopped attending classes and started to carry guards with her.
I had a scare once with a message that I got about a class I was going to, and I was like, you know what, it’s not worth it. It was a threat. It seemed like they knew where I was... and I just decided better safe than sorry.Olivia Dunne
Olivia Dunne’s security increased for upcoming gymnastics season
One common factor for almost every person on the planet is that they want to become famous. However, only a handful of people reach this status with their hard work. Fame also comes with several concerns, as seen with Olivia Dunne. She will now have increased security for the upcoming gymnastics season.
The major reason for this has been the death threats she has received on her social media handles. While being stalked, one stalker of her threatened to “shoot up” the LSU campus. The organization has taken this threat seriously and has initiated measures to prevent anything from happening.
