Shannon Hortman-Evans is the talk of the gymnastics world after this epic routine.

The college athlete out of Brigham Young University produced a ‘Super Mario Bros’-inspired routine recently at a meet against the University of Utah.

As you can see above, the iconic theme music plays in the background as Hortman-Evans goes about her work.

She also whips out a number of moves that fans of the classic computer game will recognise, including starting out by sitting on the floor as if she’s in a cart.

Video of her routine immediately went viral on social media.







What’s more, the judges loved it too, giving her 9.900 out of 10.


And it’s not the first time Hortman-Evans has broken from the norm in a routine.

Last year she did a shark attack-themed routine, using music from the Beach Boys, ‘Hawaii Five-0’, ‘Wipeout’ and ‘Jaws’.

Keep up the good work Shannon.
