Katelyn Ohashi is going viral for her energetic floor routine. Ohashi is a gymnast for UCLA and killed her latest floor routine. The school shared a video of Ohashi doing flips and bouncing into the splits. But if her stunts weren’t enough, Ohashi shows off her personality and charisma by dancing in between tricks. Ohashi scored a perfect 10.
The video has over 21.6 million views. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a treat.
Ohashi soars across the floor to a mashup of “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner, “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire,” The Jackson 5’s “I want YOu Back” and Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
This isn’t the first time Ohashi has gone viral for her impressive floor routine. Back at the 2018 Pac-12 championships, she moonwalked to a Michael Jackson themed routine, which secured her the title of NCAA floor champion. Her routine has over 4.1 million views.
In the background of both of her viral routines, you can see her teammates doing the dance portion of her routines alongside her.
The 21-year-old is in her senior year at UCLA. She is from Seattle, Washington and has been doing gymnastics for as long as she remembers. She won numerous gold medals in the junior division of gymnastics. In 2013 she won the American Cup beating out Simone Biles. However, an injury prevented her from trying out for the Olympic team.
According to The Players’ Tribune, Ohashi suffered a fractured back and two torn shoulders. She decided to drop from the elite level of gymnastics and focus on competing at the collegiate level.
Since leaving elite gymnastics Ohashi has been significantly happier and it shows.
