Katelyn Ohashi

Katelyn Ohashi, 21, wowed the crowd with her jumps and contagious enthusiasm as she danced to The Jackson 5 during her floor routine, earning a ideal 10 from the judges during Saturday's Collegiate Challenge.

As "The Way You Make Me Feel" played, Ohashi delivered three tumbles, into a split landing before standing to the raucous applause of the crowd and fellow competitors.

Over the weekend, UCLA Bruins gymnast Katelyn Ohashi's literally ideal routine captured the heart of the internet.

"She was on a path of nearly invincibility, and then, her back just gave out", she added.

"I don't think I've ever seen someone visibly having this much fun while competing", one person tweeted.

"We just kept [saying], 'How're we gonna top that?" And she did so with a huge, infectious smile across her face that made it impossible not to share in her joy.

"This is fantastic", Harris wrote on Twitter as she offered congratulations to Ohashi and her gymnastics team.

Earlier, Ohashi's Teammate Kyla Ross had scored a ideal ten for her uneven bars routine.

If Ohashi was at all nervous about her intimidating routine on Saturday, it didn't show.

Video of Katelyn performing the routine in February 2018 achieved the same awe and praise from fans around the world, racking up more than 561,000 views after being posted to the NCAA Gymnastics YouTube channel.

For the 2019 Collegiate Challenge, Ohashi's floor routine earned her a flawless ten. Days later, it's continuing to earn her accolades.

Ohashi once competed at an elite level and was an Olympic hopeful. She spent four years on the USA Gymnastics Junior National Team and in 2013, beat teammate and future Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles. "I was unbeatable until I wasn't", Ohashi said.
