This gymnast’s floor routine went viral because it’s such extraordinary stuff
It’s fair to say gymnastics and floor routines in particular don’t flicker onto our radar too often.
But this performance by Katelyn Ohashi is just amazing, and two minutes very, very well spent.
It went viral because, well, have a watch for yourself.
