If you're a talented gymnast vaulting extremely high in the air in your immaculate floor routine, and your spirits are even higher, people notice.
So when UCLA shared a video of NCAA champion gymnast Katelyn Ohashi handily earning a perfect 10 score with her Michael Jackson medley at Saturday's Under Armor's 2019 Collegiate Challenge, she got a whole lot of praise from some pretty high-profile people via Twitter.
In the clip, UCLA's Katelyn Ohashi made sticking a flawless landing after nailing three backflips and landing into a split look like pure fun, and the crowd lapped it up. She did it all with unbridled joy and a million-watt smile to the tune of songs like Jackson's “I Want You Back,” and Janet Jackson's “Rhythm Nation.”
That ability has lead the video to garner more than 15 million views of Monday morning, more views than Los Angeles has people.
