Ohashi, a 21-year-old senior, earned the score at the Collegiate Challenge competition in Anaheim, Caifornia, on Saturday night, and when looking at the video of the routine, it’s easy to see why.

Ohashi twists and turns, jumps and spins, then lands in a splits before jumping up to dance off across the mat.


"Her whole floor routine is ridiculously hard," coach Valorie Kondos Field told The Daily Bruin. "Every single thing about it, including the backwards split that she does after her leap pass – it's insane."

Ohasi not only made it look easy, she made it look like a whole lot of fun.
