Gymnast Katelyn Ohashi goes viral with epic Michael Jackson floor routine

The Bruins flag flies as the UCLA Bruins score a touchdown against the Colorado Buffaloes at Folsom Field

With an instrumental medley featuring classics including Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" and "ABC", by The Jackson 5, Ohashi's routine thoroughly energized the crowd and had her teammates rocking along with her during the performance.

You don't need to know a whole lot about gymnastics to appreciate the floor routine that Katelyn Ohashi dominated over the weekend.

How she was able to bounce back up from her final splits so quickly is simply astonishing, given the strain she put on her body.

"I don't think I've ever seen someone visibly having this much fun while competing", one person tweeted. "She just keeps going and going like nothing's stopping her". And she did so with a huge, infectious smile across her face that made it impossible not to share in her joy.

After her performance, Ohashi ran towards her team and shared hi5s with her teammates before the flawless scores were revealed and she received big hugs from her team.

"A 10 isn't enough for this floor routine", declared UCLA Gymnastics on Twitter, and it appears countless social media users agreed.

"This girl's joy is just being present, ' Katelyn says, as footage from her childhood training plays".

UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi's floor routine stunned judges and spectators alike at a meet Saturday.

Now this makes her performance even more inspiring. Days later, it's continuing to earn her accolades.

Ohashi, according to UCLA, is the reigning NCAA co-champion in floor exercises. She joined UCLA's team in 2015. But in her Players' Tribune video, titled "I Was Broken", Ohashi details her emotional journey away from that elite gymnastics scene.

"There was a time where I was on top of the world, an Olympic hopeful". It's not me standing on a podium with medals.
