Olivia Dunne claims that more LSU gymnasts "deserve" NIL victory "just as much."
Olivia Dunne, a gymnast from Louisiana State University, rose to the top of the NCAA's female athlete pay scale this year.
Now, the 21-year-old is assisting other female athletes in landing big sponsorship deals.
Launched in July, Dunne's Livvy Fund announced on Tuesday a new relationship with Accelerator Active Energy,
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is the highest-paid NFL player after signing for $275 million.
indicating that the brand will be the first to sign non-interest deals (NILs) with athletes through the fund.
Eight gymnasts from LSU will also represent Accelerator, the company announced in a statement to PEOPLE.
"I've been fortunate enough to have all these different opportunities with NIL and to have experience because it could be very foreign to other athletes at the start of it,"
Dunne told PEOPLE in an interview. "So, I just wanted to help other women and give them opportunities to learn and have more NIL deals because they deserve it just as much as I do."
