'She's amazing': Viral gymnast does it again with another incredible routine

Katelyn Ohashi has done it again.

The 21-year-old college senior at UCLA has scored another perfect 10 for her viral floor routine, this time during a meet at the University of Oklahoma.

In January, Ohashi’s first perfect 10 floor routine went mega-viral, garnering over 40 million views on Twitter.

Her latest routine featured some of the same music, including songs by Earth, Wind and Fire and the Jackson 5.

Her new performance even caught the eye of legendary basketball player Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who tweeted that it was “one of the most exciting and electric floor performances that I’ve seen in college gymnastics!”









‘This sport isn’t bad at all’

Ohashi recently opened up about how she thought her gymnastics career was over when she walked away from competing at the elite level of the sport at just 16 years old.

But after returning to the gym as a part of the UCLA Bruins collegiate team, the 21-year-old is confident that stepping away from the immense pressure that she once felt was a gift to both her and the sport.

“It’s like the reward I could have never seen coming,” the college senior told Yahoo Lifestyle.

“To see this happiness and joy and realise that this sport isn’t bad, at all.”

After a fractured back and shoulder injuries forced her out of the sport, Ohashi admits that she relied on gymnastics for validation.

Now, she’s able to have fun with her sport — and it’s showing in her work.

“Someone said this is what gymnastics needed after all of the negativity that our sport has gotten the past couple years,” Ohashi said.

“There was a culture that was created for a while but I think we’re starting to break away from it.

“Gymnastics has taught me so many lessons and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything that I’ve gone through.”
