Sports Illustrated Swimsuit star Olivia Dunne swaps gymnastics for her boyfriend’s sport of baseball… with hilarious results!

Olivia Dunne is a superstar gymnast and a rising star in the world of modeling… but it seems baseball might not come to her quite as easily.

In a hilarious clip posted to her Instagram page on Thursday night, the LSU icon opted to try her hand at the sport played by her boyfriend – with hilarious results.

The video begins with Dunne, 21, on the balance beam, alongside the caption: ‘Stay on the beam’.

That instruction, perhaps unsurprisingly, caused few issues and she can be seen cartwheeling over it with ease.

The clip then cuts to her in the batting cage, alongside the caption: ‘Okay now hit the ball’ – but this is where things got more difficult.

When it comes to baseball, she doesn't have quite the same level of talent

Dunne had four attempts to hit the ball - and missed them all!

Hilariously, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model is unable to make contact with her bat, instead spinning around and struggling while the balls keep flying at her.

She has four attempts to make contact, but unfortunately her first at-bat ended in four strikes – and she was out.

Dunne will perhaps now have even more respect for her pitcher boyfriend Paul Skenes, who has this season shot to fame with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

After being drafted No. 1 overall, Skenes flew through his minor-league assignments and was quickly in the big leagues – with Livvy watching on from the stands.

The pair have become the hottest couple in baseball, and their fame and fortune is only set to increase as both continue to make their mark. 

Away from their respective sports, both are already raking in the cash from sponsorship deals, with Dunne last week filming a commercial alongside Travis Kelce.

During an interview on Good Morning America, Kelce revealed that he had ‘got Livvy Dunne in the building’ to shoot advertisements for the energy drink brand Accelerator, which he became an investor in last year along with brother Jason and Yankees star Aaron Judge.

Dunne, the LSU gymnastics sensation who boasts eight million followers on TikTok, also joined Accelerator’s A-list roster of athletes in 2023, and has now teamed up with Kelce to promote it.

Travis said of her on GMA: ‘Absolutely just an awesome person, she’s down there making Accelerator look amazing.’

His investment in Accelerator is just one of Kelce’s many business ventures, with the Kansas City Chiefs superstar riding the wave of his high-profile romance with Taylor Swift.
