We’re ‘Un Poco Loco’ Over This Mexican Gymnast’s ‘Coco’ Floor Routine And Charro-Inspired Outfit

“Ay mi amor, ay mi amor” — you need to take a look at the energetic performance Ana Lago Serna performed at The Superstars of Gymnastics competition in London. The Mexican gymnast put her culture front and center as she took to the floor while wearing a charro-inspired leotard and even had a sombrero with her (not during the routine, of course). Check out Lago’s floor routine below.

Ana Lago Serna took her Mexican culture and a little bit of “Coco” to London and it is everything.

Before the first strums of the film’s lively “Un Poco Loco” song, the TV broadcaster says Lago “brought a bit of her Mexican tradition to her performance, her personality shining through.”

Her charro outfit is one of the most magical moments to happen on a gymnastics mat and we are all here for it. Not to mention the way she color-coordinated her sombrero and her leotard. Talk about owning your heritage and being unapologetically yourself no matter what.

Her personality and cultura Mexicana took center stage and she delivered a fun routine as the audience clapped along.


Lago danced and tumbled around the mat and everyone was clearly feeling her vibe. She seems so happy and way into this routine. Honestly, everyone would be ecstatic to share their culture is such a fun and athletic way.

Even the announcer at the stadium was totally into it—you can hear him yell “Vamos” to the crowd while he narrates her performance. You know that you are delivering one amazing routine when the commentators get really into it.

Fans watching online were also taken by Lago’s performance and charro outfit.

Lago looks so comfortable on that floor that it is so easy to get carried way with her performance. Her own excitement about what she does is palpable through the screen. Also, the song really makes the routine pop with culture and sabor.

And that leotard is what everyone is talking about.

Does that leotard come in our size? Asking for a friend. By friend I mean me. I don’t want to start gymnastics or anything. I just want something to wear during the Olympics while I cheer on Mexico without having to buy a full charro outfit. Those are expensive, heavy, and so hot that it is not worth it.

Some of Lago’s faithful fans even made art inspired by her “Coco” outfit.

The gymnast is not completely new to the spotlight. She has been a champion at both the Panamerican and the Central American games, and has been a member of the Mexican national team for the past 10 years.

Her artistry in gymnastics earned Mexico’s first gold in the category. That’s what you call a national treasure, and after this performance, a Mexican cultural treasure.

Honestly, we are most excited to see Mexican culture making such a splash in London.

Apart from her gymnastics triumphs, Lago has also competed as a celebrity athlete on the TV Azteca show, Exatlón Mexico, and Instagram has over 700,000 fans and her official Facebook page boasts over 300,000 followers.

Here’s hoping we keep seeing Lago’s creativity flow through her gymnastic routines for several more years.

With a trade from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Cincinnati Reds over the winter, Yasiel Puig is one of the most interesting storylines coming into this year. The Cuban sensation was a lightning bolt full of energy for six seasons in LA but will now have to prove himself with the Reds. All we know is that if Puig comes with that same energy he should be all right.

2.Gleyber Torres

As a rookie with the New York Yankees, Torres made quite an impact with 24 home runs. The Yankees will look too Torres to repeat that same power stroke as they chase a return to the playoffs.

3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr

Few rookies have as much hype coming into 2019 like Vladimir Guerrero Jr do. The Dominican born third baseman is the son of Hall-Of-Famer Vladimir Guerrero so the expectations are high. If the Toronto Blue Jays want to be relevant this season, Guerrero will be a big part of that success.

4. Gary Sanchez

Gary Sanchez is easily one of the best hitting catchers in all of baseball and the Yankees will be counting on that bat this season. The Dominican catcher has averaged 23 home runs the last three seasons and was a big part of the Yankees success last season. We are sure to hear about Sanchez this year as he triers to help the Yankess win the AL East title.

5. Kenley Jansen

After undergoing heart surgery in the off-season, Kenley Jensen is expected to have a comeback year. The Dodgers closer struggled at times last season and wasn’t as dependable as in previous years. The Curaçaoan flamethrower has been one of the best closers the last few years and is sure to make a return to form this year.

6. Jose Abreu

2018 was the first time in Jose Abreu’s career that he hit lower than .290 and hit only 22 home runs. Those were all career lows for the Chicago White Sox first baseman. The Cuban native has been one of best sluggers in baseball since his debut in 2014 and the White Sox will be looking for him to bounce back.

7. Aroldis Chapman

Aroldis Chapman is known for his 100 MPH fastball and his shutdown changeup. Last year was arguably one of his best seasons and was a key part of why the Yankees made the playoffs. There’s no doubt Chapman will be bringing the heat again this year.

8. Edwin Diaz

After leading the major leagues with 57 saves, the Seattle Mariners promptly traded Edwin Diaz to the New York Mets. Diaz had a breakout year last season and will be expected to be a difference maker in New York.

9. Juan Soto

Juan Soto burst onto the scene last year for the Washington Nationals and never looked back. He hit 22 home runs and was one of the top rookies in baseball after his debut in May. From the looks of it, Soto is just getting started.

10.Carlos Correa

After an injury-plagued season, Carlos Correa is looking to rebound and get back to his MVP form from 2017. The Puerto Rican native has all the tools of a great shortstop as well as a great ambassador for the game of baseball. The Houston Astros are expecting big things from Correa this season.

11. Luis Severino

Luis Severino is the anchor of the New York Yankees starting rotation and is poised lead it for years to come. Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Severino has a lights out sliders and an even more effective changeup. He’s a must watch this season and a pitcher you should fear facing.

12. Ronald Acuna Jr

Ronald Acuna Jr won the Rookie of the Year award last season and there’s no doubt the 21-year-old outfielder is going to be a force again. The Atlanta Braves have a loaded young team and Acuna will the be the one trying to lead them into the playoffs again.

13. Manny Machado

Manny Machado made headlines this past off-season when he signed a 10-year $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres. Machado instantly makes the Padres contenders in the NL West and will be expected to put up huge numbers. He’s been on of the most consistent power hitters in baseball since his debut in 2012 and will surely make some noise this year.

14. Jose Ramirez

Jose Ramirez led the Cleveland Indians to the postseason for the third straight season due to his breakout bat. Ramirez, who hails from the Dominican Republic, is predicted to be in the MVP conversation this year.

15.Jose Altuve

He might be small in stature but his bat says otherwise. Jose Altuve started 2018 strong but struggled towards the end. The former AL MVP should have no trouble working his way back up. Many are predicating the Houston Astros to go back to the World Series and Altuve will have to be a big part of that success.

16. Francisco Lindor

The Puerto Rican native is arguably one of the best shortstops in baseball. Lindor brings great defense to the position that few can match and a bat that produced 38 home runs last season. We are expecting an encore performance for the young promising shortstop.

17. Javier Baez

A key member of the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, Javier Baez shows no signs of regressing. Baez is heart and soul of the Cubs lineup and will be a key player in 2019. He had one of his best seasons in 2018 with his bat and was in the top-five of MVP voting for his strong season.

18. Marcell Ozuna

Traded from the Miami Marlins to the St. Louis Cardinals last offseason, Marcell Ozuna welcomed himself to his new club with 23 home runs. The power hitting outfielder is one of the more underrated players in the game.

19. Robinson Cano

After spending the last five seasons with the Seattle Mariners, Robinson Cano has a new home in New York. This also means high expectations for the all-star second baseman who has hit consistently throughout his 14-year career. Cano, who was born in San Pedro de Macoris, is going to be a must-watch this season as he tries to push the Mets to the playoffs.

20. Julio Urias

They used to call him “the teenager’ due to his young age, but now 22, Julio Urias is ready to make his name with the LA Dodgers. Hailing from Culiacan, Mexico, Urias represents his country with pride and shows that emotion on the field. Don’t be surprised if you hear his name again this season.

21. Roberto Osuna

From Sinaloa, Mexico, Roberto Osuna is one of baseball’s best relief pitchers. Coming off a season marked with controversy due to a domestic abuse suspension, Osuna will try to make a comeback on and off the field.
