Viral Video Shows UCLA Gymnast Katelyn Ohashi Scoring Perfect 10

According to her official UCLA website bio, the Katelyn Ohashi floor routine, as it is now known, was by no means the first ideal 10 score for the six-time all-American - and two were on the beam. "Every single thing about it including the backwards split that she does after her leap pass - it's insane", the Daily Bruin quoted Ohashi's coach as saying. After competing with a fractured back and two torn shoulders, she chose to take a much-needed break.

"She was on a path of nearly invincibility, and then, her back just gave out", she added. "GO GIRL!" one person commented. She's had some ups and downs throughout her career but she's been at the top of her game for the past several months.

Katelyn didn't stop there with kicks, front flips and turns, all the while with a huge grin on her face.

Ohashi moonwalked into tying for first place at last year's Pac-12 Championships with a routine that earned a 9.95 out of 10 on the scorecard, and resulted in a video that got 90 million views. She had another impressive M.J. -themed floor routine (featuring a moonwalk!) that helped her tie for first place during the Pac-12 Championships previous year, but that routine scored her a 9.95 out of 10.

The Chinese government said it was "highly concerned" over reports of the arrest of a Chinese businessman for alleged espionage. Until then, she's under strict bail conditions, which include electric monitoring and an around-the-clock security detail.

If Ohashi was at all nervous about her intimidating routine on Saturday, it didn't show. Last year, she earned three flawless scores for her floor exercise. These injuries kept her away from the sport until 2015.

UCLA gymnastics tweeted the video of Ohashi's performance, which has since gone viral. She almost scored a 10 on her other event, balance beam, but had to settle for a 9.975. "I was unbeatable. Until I wasn't".

Ohashi is a former elite gymnast and once-Olympic hopeful who competed alongside Simone Biles.

"I haven't been able to feel this type of happiness in a long time", Ohashi said. It's not me standing on a podium with medals.
