LOS ANGELES  — When you think of gymnastics, you normally wouldn’t connect it with hip hop, but that’s exactly what a college gymnast did Saturday and now it’s gone viral.

UCLA’s Sophina DeJesus blew up the internet with a hip hop inspired floor routine during a meet against the University of Utah.

DeJesus rocked the gymnasium with flawless tumbling and flips, while performing popular hip hop dances, the Whip and Nae Nae, Harlem Shake, and the Dab.

She did all this while sticking her landings with ease.

She received an almost perfect score of 9.925.

In the video you can see DeJesus’ teammates cheering her on and hear the crowd going crazy for the routine.

The video has been viewed more than 19 million times on Facebook and has even been featured on ESPN.

DeJesus’ performance also helped UCLA clinch the victory over Utah.
