Watch: Gymnast Katelyn Ohashi’s perfect-10 floor routine is mesmerising

14th Jan 2019

Anyone else got the Monday Blues? Well, this is sure to cure what ails you.

On Sunday evening, the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) gymnast, 21-year-old Katelyn Ohashi from Seattle in the USA, rightfully became the new viral queen of the Internet.

the landscape of female sport in Ireland

Mere hours ago, team’s official Twitter account posted a video of Ohashi’s incredibly energetic and quite frankly, awe-inspiring floor routine — and now the video of the performance, which earned her a perfect-10 score, has been viewed more than 16 million times. The word flawless comes to mind, as Ohashi almost effortlessly executes her tumbling passes and incredible splits with aplomb.

Her skills, strength, non-stop energy (reminiscent of a certain Simone Biles) and that beaming smile make it impossible to look away as she moved to a stellar medley of songs that included Proud Mary by Tina Turner, September by Earth, Wind & Fire, I Want You Back by the Jackson 5, Rhythm Nation by Janet Jackson, and Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel.

Even those who aren’t up on the world of gymnastics will want to watch this incredible floor routine – Ohashi is a force to be reckoned with.

Her routine is simply joyful to watch.
