After her performance, Ohashi ran towards her team and shared hi5s with her teammates before the perfect scores were revealed and she received big hugs from her team.
There was a particular move in her routine where she executed a perfect split and immediately got up and stood at her feet. The netizens could not believe what they saw and were completely in awe.

The amount of fun @katelyn_ohashi appears to be having and how relaxed she looks is what it’s all about. Phenomenal, so much fun to watch this team compete.

I’m going to add that she performs so joyfully. Once in my life I’d like to feel that sort of whole body joy like she does. Good for her. I’m so happy for her. I can’t imagine the amount of work she’s put in over the years to be able to do that.

She was never alone! Her team was in every move every jump tumble every spin: She already won but I hope they gave her the gold so she could share it with them. Beautiful!

Ohashi had also created headlines last year for her Michael Jackson-inspired performance and is the reigning NCAA co-champion in floor exercises. She was also a 2018 NCAA team champion.
Before UCLA, Ohashi competed at the elite level of gymnastics until she injured her back and shoulder. Because of her injuries, she decided to compete on the college level.
