UCLA Gymnast Goes Viral After Floor Routine Earns Perfect 10

UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi danced her way to a flawless score of 10 this past weekend and the video has since gone viral.

The UCLA senior, who was an internet sensation previous year for her Jackson-inspired performance, danced this time to the King of Pop's "The Way You Make Me Feel", The Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" and Earth, Wind and Fire's "September".

According to UCLA Gymnastics, Ohashi will be performing the routine again at Bruins in Pauley Pavilion on Monday, Jan. 21, let's hope it's filmed again for those of us not in the United States who need a pick me up during this very cold January!

"I think what I show is joy when I do stuff so I think always having a love for what you do every single day is something that I hold extremely close to my heart because I know what it's like to not feel that", she said.

One person on Twitter summed up her routine perfectly, and wrote: "She is simply a badass".

"This girl's joy is just being present, ' Katelyn says, as footage from her childhood training plays".

UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi performed a dazzling floor routine that left spectators and judges in awe.

Ohashi had also created headlines a year ago for her Michael Jackson-inspired performance and is the reigning NCAA co-champion in floor exercises. She almost scored a 10 on her other event, balance beam, but had to settle for a 9.975.

The incredible gymnast wows the audience by doing a triple tumble into a painful split before springing to her feet to the sound of applause as though it was easy. She instead channeled her energy into college gymnastics, joining the UCLA Bruins gymnastics team for the 2015-16 season. Because of her injuries, she made a decision to compete on the college level.

In a Players' Tribune video titled "I Was Broken", she opened up about the pressures of being at the top of her game. "I was unbeatable. Until I wasn't".

"I haven't been able to feel this type of happiness in a long time", Ohashi said. It's not me standing on the podium with medals.
