UCLA Gymnast Wins Championship with Michael Jackson Inspired Routine
I don't know the first thing about gymnastics. Hell, I can't even two step. So seeing something like this is super impressive to me.
Her name is Katelyn Ohashi and she is a gymnast at UCLA. She performed the above routine at the 2018 Pac-12 Gymnastics Championship to help win the 2018 NCAA women's gymnastics team title according to simplemost.com.
As seen in the video, the performance is inspired by Michael Jackson using a couple of his tunes and several of his signature dance moves like the moonwalk and the 'Thriller' clap.
You gymnastic aficionados you are about to laugh at my analysis, because I know nothing about gymnastics routines but, in addition to the MJ dance moves, she also did a sit down into a stand up, then later did a jump into the splits and back to her feet.
I don't know what any of it is but it sure was impressive.
I'd be happy just to waltz without stepping on my partners toes.
