This Gymnast’s Flawless Floor Routine Is Going Viral
She scored a perfect 10 this time!
If you’ve never seen Katelyn Ohashi and her team perform at a gymnastics meet, you’ve been missing out. The gymnast’s latest floor routine has practically broken the internet. But perhaps the craziest part of all is the fact that this isn’t the first time she’s seen viral fame thanks to excelling at the sport she loves.
You may recall the floor routine seen ’round the world. In this epic performance, Ohashi executed an incredibly entertaining performance — one, because of the insanely difficult gymnastics involved and, two, it involved a moonwalk. Need we say more?
Back in April 2018, the UCLA gymnast performed to Michael Jackson hits, including “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin.’”
You can see the epic performance again here:
And now, Ohashi is back and better than ever! She competed at the 2019 Collegiate Challenge and walked away with a perfect score of 10. The gymnast absolutely wowed the judges with both the difficulty of her performance and the smile she kept on her face the entire time.
This time, she didn’t dance to Michael Jackson alone. Rather, she came to the floor with a variety of R&B songs at her back, such as Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September,” The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
The UCLA Gymnastics Twitter account posted a video of her routine, writing that the score of 10 “isn’t enough” for a floor routine this good.
Watch the incredible routine for yourself below — and prepare to be absolutely blown away:

Some think she should take her talents beyond the world of gymnastics and become a full-blown superhero. Twitter user @DGoforth918 tweeted, “She should be in the [A]vengers.”

Now, that’s a movie we’d watch!
Ohashi, her own toughest critic, has already tweeted about the routine, noting one way she could improve her performance.
“Now [I] just gotta learn how to clap on the beat,” she wrote.

But considering she nailed all of the other moves, we have a feeling she won’t have any problems with that.
Who else is ready to replay that video for the 1,000th time? Hats off to Ohashi — because she killed it!
