“Being a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model is a dream come true,” Dunn said in a video posted on the publication’s Instagram page. “There are a lot of young girls who look up to me and I feel like a lot of young girls follow Sports Illustrated as well. So I think both of our brands are aligned because we both want to inspire the younger generation.”
Dunn is among the college athletes with highest zero scoresIt is reported by On3 Sports. She also spoke to Sports Illustrated about being at the forefront of the NIL craze.
“As a woman, no one expected a gymnast to be at the forefront (of deals with names, images and likenesses),” she told the publication. “Most people expected football, baseball, basketball. Being a woman at the forefront and trying to make the playing field more equal is definitely a step in the right direction.”
Dunn made it clear to young women that “you are more than just a sport.”
