Katelyn Ohashi, born on April 12, 1997, is a two-time All-American and previous four-time member of USA Gymnastics’ Junior National Team who attends the University of California-Los Angeles, where she is a member of the gymnastics team.
In 2018, Ohashi was the National Collegiate Athletic Association floor exercise co-champion. That same year, Ohashi scored 3 perfect scores on floor exercises and finished the regular 2018 season ranked #1 in the country.
Prior to attending UCLA, Ohashi was the junior national champion in 2011 and won the American Cup in 2013.
In January 2019, Ohashi went crazy viral on Twitter thanks to her incredible floor routine, which was set to classic tunes such as “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire, “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson, and “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5.
Ohashi’s electric routine spurred her UCLA Bruins team to first place at the Collegiate Challenge.
This isn’t Ohashi’s first time going viral, though, as her Michael Jackson-inspired routine at the 2018 Pac-12 gymnastics championships currently has over 4 million views on YouTube.
