UCLA Gymnast Uses Black Girl Magic And The Jacksons For A Perfect 10 Routine

The Bruins’ Katelyn Ohashi blew up on the mat, and across Twitter, in a routine with nothing but flavor.

When you say the word gymnastics, most would think of current names like Simone Biles and Gabby Douglas, gold medal winners who brought pride and smiles to everyone across the world.

In February 2016, we witnessed a different type of gymnastics routine when UCLA’s Sophina DeJesus brought hip-hop to her floor routine and had everyone in the house, and across the internet, going crazy.

Almost three years later, another UCLA gymnast did the same thing and Twitter can’t get enough.

Heads turned the second Katelyn Ohashi stepped up onto the mat. Once the music started, it was on.


Not only did she give us a Jacksons music library filled routine, she jumped, bounded and split her way to a score of a perfect 10.

This isn’t the first time Katelyn tore it up with a little help from the Jackson family. She did it last year at the 2018 PAC-12 championships as well, and she got a 9.95 for that routine.

We have a funny feeling that UCLA gymnastics just might become the biggest ticket on campus, especially when Katelyn is on the floor.
