Katelyn Ohashi is no stranger to the perfect 10. Last year, Ohashi finished as the nation’s top college gymnast and shared the NCAA women’s national championship in the floor routine.
At the Collegiate Challenge on Saturday, the UCLA senior and one-time Olympic hopeful dazzled judges with a Michael Jackson-inspired routine for the ages, earning her a perfect score and causing the internet to erupt in joy.
This is just fantastic. Congratulations, @katelyn_ohashi and @uclagymnastics. pic.twitter.com/DfQW4W05gp
