Gymnastics is one of those sports where not too many people understand the scoring aspect of the competition, but we all know what greatness looks like when we see it! That is exactly what happened with viral gymnast sensation Nia Dennis over the weekend.
Dennis was born in Columbus, Ohio, and trained at Buckeye Gymnastics in Westerville before going on to complete with the UCLA Gymnastics team. Westerville also happens to be the same city where gymnastics great Simone Biles is from!
Twitter erupted with praise as she went viral for all the right reasons! Check out her floor routine and more below!
