Gymnastics: Katelyn Ohashi lands another perfect 10 with incredible floor routine


American gymnast Katelyn Ohashi, who went viral for her flawless floor routine earlier this year, has done it again.

Ohashi, who currently competes for the University of California, landed another perfect 10 on the floor for UCLA gymnastics in a meet against Oklahoma on the weekend.

Wowing both the crowd and judges with her tumbling routines and infectious energy, the 21-year-old caught global attention once more.

Similar to her past routines, Ohashi impressed with moves to Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September,” The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” and more classics while the commentators discussed how influential the young gymnast’s performances have been.

“Her viral performances have literally been the most important thing that happened to women’s collegiate gymnastics this season,” one commentator said.

The original video of Ohashi’s routine has now been viewed more than 43 million times since it was posted to the UCLA Gymnastics Twitter page in January, making it the most watched sports video of 2019 so far.

Twitter users praised it as “the most exciting floor routine they had ever seen”.

UCLA head coach Valorie Kondos Field was in awe of Ohashi after the routine.

“I’ve never seen her facial, her performance quality, be that professional as I saw tonight,” Kondos Field told the Los Angeles Times.

“Her whole floor routine is ridiculously hard. Every single thing about it including the backwards split that she does after her leap pass – it’s insane.”

The UCLA gymnastics team placed second at the meet behind Oklahoma.
