Twenty-one-year-old Katelyn Ohashi is an American gymnast who has taken the world by storm with her Janet and Michael Jackson inspired floor routine. She competed with her school in the Collegiate Challenge competition in Anaheim, California against Arizona State University at Pauley Pavilion on January 21st.

Ohashi was a four time member of the USA Gymnastics Junior National Team and the winner of the 2013 American Cup where she beat Simone Biles. Her outstanding acrobatic flips, dance moves, and confidence got her a perfect score. It also got her two minute floor routine viral, getting over 40 million views and landing her on Good Morning America.

After feeling pressured and suffering from a fractured back she made a tough and challenging decision to step away from the Olympic sport back in 2015. She introduced herself to the sport again by joining the UCLA’s Gymnastics program, led by the fabulous choreographer and former ballet dancer Valorie Kondos Field. There Ohashi rediscovered her passion for gymnastics.

“It took me finding Miss Val, and UCLA, and having a different goal and path to follow, to finally find joy and love within the sport again,” Ohashi said.
