Not only did Ohashi stun the audience with her amazing athleticism, but she also wowed judges enough to earn a perfect 10 for her routine Saturday at Under Armour's 2019 Collegiate Challenge.

UCLA gymnastics tweeted the video of Ohashi's performance, which has since gone viral.

"A 10 isn't enough for this floor routine by @katelyn_ohashi," the tweet read.

Ohashi, according to UCLA, is the reigning NCAA co-champion in floor exercises. She was also a 2018 NCAA team champion.

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.

This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Under Armour.
