Beyoncé, Imma Let You Finish, But… This Afro-Latina Gymnast Had The Best Dance Of The Week
This weekend everyone was buzzing about Beyoncé’s almost-flawed Super Bowl halftime routine.
Yeah, that one.
But there’s another young queen who has everyone talking.
21-year old UCLA senior gymnast Sophina DeJesus who works the floor mat and glitter winged liner like no other ?.
In Saturday’s UCLA vs. Utah meet, Sophina helped her Bruins snatch the final victory thanks to her flawless 9.925 performance.
With what could’ve been a terrible start, thanks to the announcer wrongfully confusing her with her teammate Sonya Meraz…
WTF, dude? But we’ll get to that later.
Sophina walked out with all the confidence in the world.
The way she strutted, you knew it was going to be good.
She completely murdered a front double full followed by a Sasha Fierce-like walk and a Harlem shake. WERK!
THEN, she had this major tumbling pass.
Dare we say it was better than Beyoncé’s SB 50 performance?
Because we all know what happened.
But Sophina stopped this landing perffeeeectly!
Wut up, Bey.
She whipped, nae-nae’d and reminded everyone Puerto Ricans have ritmo like no other.
Rightfully so, her classmates went crazy when she did the splits, but that was just a little something to warm up the crowd to what was yet to come…
But. Check. This. Out.
Tumbling pass with the hard splits…
She ends with a salute and… DAB!
We think Super Bowl 51 already found one of their performers.
