UCLA gymnast breaks the internet with unbelievable routine

When Katelyn Ohashi took the mat at an NCAA college gymnastics match in LA, the audience had no clue they were in for such an amazing show. 

"Proud Mary" began the one and a half minute routine, set to R&B hits like "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire, The Jackson 5′s "I Want You Back" and Michael Jackson’s "The Way You Make Me Feel."

The songs were the perfect background for the high-energy number that Ohashi nailed with what looked like ease.

"Her whole floor routine is ridiculously hard," her coach told UCLA’s student newspaper. "Every single thing about it including the backward split that she does after her leap pass — it’s insane."

It was apparent from the first hip-pop that the 21-year-old was having the time of her life. Not only were her flips, splits and moves flawless, but a huge smile never left her face. Which is why the internet just can’t get enough. 

Once an Olympic hopeful, Katelyn had stepped back from the sport in August, claiming that it was ‘breaking’ her. So her return to the floor was highly-anticipated, and she definitely did not disappoint. 

“A 10 isn’t enough for this floor routine by @katelyn_ohashi,” tweeted UCLA Gymnastics.
