Katelyn Ohashi knew that her routine was something special.
But even she was amazed to see just how popular it became.
Ohashi was competing as a gymnast in the UCLA Athletic team.
She stood, waiting for the music to start. Then The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson started palying.
Ohashi started dancing around.
Then she ran forward and performed a series of amazing front flips before launching herself into the air.
Midair, she flipped forward some more before landing perfectly on the ground.
Then she danced back and forth to the rhythm of the music.
After that, she ran forward and performed some more front flips. Eventually, she did the splits in the air before landing perfectly back on the ground.
The music changed to another Michael Jackson song, Remember the Time. Ohashi danced to this new beat.
Then she performed some more front flips before performing the splits, this time on the floor.
The music changed again, this time to December (Based on “September”) by Earth, Wind & Fire.
Ohashi kept on dancing to this new song. Then she performed more splits in the air.
Lastly, the song changed to Proud Mary by Tina Turner.
Ohashi kept moving to this, before vaulting into the air and performing some final flips and splits. She assumed her final position as the music ended.
Then the crowd cheered her on. She ran over to her team members and high-fived them all.
The judges all gave her perfect 10s for her routine.
And it wasn’t just the judges that were impressed.
The performance then appeared on YouTube, where it soon went viral.
To date, it has gained over 143 million views. For comparison, the 2021 Super Bowl could only gain 96.4 million views.
The video has also gained more than 993,000 likes and 46,000 comments.
So who is Katelyn Ohashi, the gymnast who can gain more views than The Superbowl?
She has had a long career as a top gymnast.
In fact, she is, “an eight-time All-American and a four time member of USA Gymnastics’ Junior National Team.” She was also the 2011 junior national champion of the 2013 American Cup.
And to achieve this, she had to defeat the Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.
If you’re an older reader who is worrying that someone so young has achieved so much, then here’s something reassuring: she was born in the same millenium as you. Just about.
Ohashi was born in Seattle in 1997.
Also, while she was studying at UCLA, Ohashi became active in helping the homeless. She even managed a fundraiser for a shelter for homeless students.
In addition to this, Ohashi also volunteers for Project Heal, a charity that helps people to recover from eating disorders.
She graduated from UCLA in 2019. But surely this is just the beginning of her career!
Clearly, Ohashi is going to both perform amazing gymnastic routines and make the world a better place in the future!
