UCLA Gymnast’s Flawless Michael Jackson-Inspired Routine Is A Thriller
Katelyn Ohashi, the 20-year-old athlete from UCLA, flipped, sashayed and tumbled across the floor to a mashup of R&B and soul music, largely featuring a few of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits.
The audience erupted in cheers at the end of Ohashi’s minute-and-a-half routine, which earned her a perfect 10 from the judges. Her flawless performance helped UCLA’s women’s gymnastics team sail to victory at the competition.
Ohashi previously competed on the US national team but left after fracturing her back and tearing both of her shoulders. She joined UCLA’s team in 2015.
After the team won in April, Ohashi revealed she had been in a serious car accident the night before the team travelled to St. Louis for the national championship.
