Sometimes there’s a video that’s so amazing, so full of life and exuberance, that not even the internet can ruin it. Like this one of UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi at Saturday’s Collegiate Challenge in Anaheim, California.
Set to a medley of classic Motown tunes like Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” and the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” her performance is electrifying. Ohashi leaps and flies across the mat with an energy, enthusiasm, and a beaming smile that’s impossible to resist.
Just look at the way her teammates react, too, around the 30-second mark, echoing her moves and cheering her on. Ohashi got a perfect 10 and helped push UCLA to a win at the weekend tournament.
