Katelyn Ohashi is a known gymnast at UCLA who was highly praised by the audience present during the 2018 PAC-12 championship. She performed to mixed instrumentals of Michael Jackson's hits, which included ‘Thriller’ and ‘The Way You Make Me Feel.’

It was obvious she is a loved gymnast because as she stepped out to complete her routine, the crowd fervently cheered her on.

She had everyone on their feet jamming their hands with her jaw-dropping performance.

The commentator introduced her as the number 2 in the country representing UCLA. She had already bagged three perfect tens, and all she needed was a nine six.

Katelyn began this particular routine by standing at the far end of the stage, and moved further in with the Michael Jackson trademark dance move, called ‘moonwalk.’

She stole the show when she ended the moonwalk with a substantial drop split. Fellow gymnasts joined her on the stage to praise her flawless steps after her performance.

Although her buoyancy made the performance look fun and easy, it couldn't have been a hit without her combining gymnastics and dance pattern.

She has above 4 million views and over 600 comments on the UCLA Gym Source account on YouTube. Forest Nymph Confessions commented:

"Wow, I saw her and thought of Simone. This will be interesting!!"
