UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi threw down an incredible floor routine Saturday night that not only landed her a flawless 10, but blew up the internet. As of early Monday morning, the video of the routine had been viewed more than 13 million times.
It was not the first time Ohashi has shot to internet fame.
The UCLA student wowed the crowd with a routine that was soundtracked by hits such as "Proud Mary", "September", "I Want You Back" and The "Way You Make Me Feel". The daughter of gymnastics icon Mary Lou Retton dazzled in her first routine of the season on January 4 and earned a 9.90. Showing her a new path to follow, UCLA's gymnastics team was the missing element for Ohashi to "feel like a person again".
For Ohashi, her burnout led to a dwindling of her self-worth, creating a negative cycle she struggled to break out of.
This time, she didn't dance to Michael Jackson alone.
People were effusive with their praise of the routine on the internet.
Social media also erupted in reaction to the effort with many women taking a moment to comment on just how much trouble they would have had with the flexible routine.
Like many world-class gymnasts, Ohashi started the sport at a young age.
"Trueee squad and team goals", Ohashi tweeted.
At the end, the crowd go wild and she runs to high-five her team mates before the judges hold up score with a ideal 10.
One wrote: 'I know zero about gymnastics but this is fun to watch.
Though it may seem hard to believe based on the video, gymnastics was not always a source of happiness for Ohashi. It came from a UCLA gymnast from the Seattle area.
Ohashi competed with USA Gymnastics' junior national team for four years, the Washington Post reported, but missed the age eligibility for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
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", Ohashi said. I was compared to a bird that couldn't fly...
Ohashi was training as an elite gymnast until her back gave out on her.
