Dunne wrapped up her senior season with LSU gymnastics as a member of the NCAA National Championship winning team in April. However, the highest-paid college gymnast has a further one year eligibility in the NCAA and left the door open to continuing for a further year amid addressing her Olympic future.

Speaking to the New York Post, Dunne failed to give any clarity on her NCAA future but did distance herself from trying out for the Olympics in the future. “So I do have eligibility for a fifth year, which I haven't decided yet,” she told the Post. “I am thinking about it… But I do have eligibility [for another year at LSU].

“I don't think I'm going to try for the Olympics or anything after, since I once competed for Team USA and I closed that chapter and went to LSU,” she revealed.

Dunne previously competed for Team USA in junior elite and senior elite before opting to choose the NCAA. She qualified to compete at the National Championships as a senior, finishing 18th in the all-around. She missed the 2019 season due to injuries before committing herself to LSU.

The Tigers won their first NCAA title at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth by scoring 198.225 to beat California (197.850), Utah (197,800) and Florida (197.4375). Success that Dunne lauded as the perfect moment to end her senior year.

“The national championship, that was obviously the end goal,” she said. “That was the cherry on top of my senior year. It’s just so cool to be able to make history like with my whole team.”
