UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi performs her final collegiate routine
Katelyn Ohashi finished her final collegiate gymnastics routine appropriately, by dropping a pretend mic.
The University of California, Los Angeles, senior gymnast scored a 9.95 in her final performance at the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics National Championship. Her routine, once again, went viral over the weekend.
Ohashi made headlines in January for her perfect 10 routine.
In the lead-up to Ohashi’s performance, UCLA tweeted a video of her and the school’s gymnastics head coach, Valorie Kondos Field, at their last practice. The video shows Field walking away after instructing Ohashi. Field fights back tears as Ohashi runs up to embrace her beloved coach.
“It wasn’t your last beam routine, I should be crying,” Ohashi said, smiling, in the video.
Before UCLA, Ohashi was competing at the elite level of gymnastics until she injured her back and shoulder, according to The Players’ Tribune. She decided to compete on the college level because of her injuries.
