As a former competitive gymnast myself, this floor routine blew me away! Just wow!
This is what I found on WashingtonPost:
When the first strains of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” filled the Anaheim Arena on Saturday, Katelyn Ohashi came alive. As she executed a quick body roll with a giant smile plastered across her face, it was clear that the 21-year-old UCLA gymnast was in her element, kicking off her high-energy floor routine with a massive tumbling pass that ended in a flawlessly stuck landing. In the course of about one minute and 30 seconds, Ohashi stunned the crowd, coaches, teammates and judges, earning a perfect score for an electrifying performance full of gravity-defying flips, killer dance moves and a healthy dose of sassy confidence that has since gone viral, with many heralding it as one of the best floor routines they have ever seen.
But perhaps the most notable feature of Ohashi’s routine was the sheer joy she exuded, which starkly contrasted with the revelations she made this August about her decision to step back from her Olympic dreams several years ago after the sport left her “broken.”
“A 10 isn’t enough for this floor routine by @katelyn_ohashi,” the UCLA Gymnastics official Twitter account tweeted Sunday, sharing a video of Ohashi’s stellar showing at the Collegiate Challenge, where the UCLA Bruins earned first place. As of early Monday morning, the video of the routine had been viewed more than 13 million times.
