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.
A UCLA gymnast pulled out all the stops during her floor routine that not only helped her team win the meet but also managed to go viral. Sophina DeJesus did the whip, the nae nae, and hit the quan during the competition in between amazing flips and tumbles.
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.
A 🔟 isn’t enough for this floor routine by @katelyn_ohashi. 🔥 https://t.co/pqUzl7AlUA
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.
