UCLA Gymnast Nia Dennis Stuns Internet with Nearly Perfect Beyoncé-Themed Routine in Viral Video

UCLA gymnast Nia Dennis has gone viral following a near-perfect Beyoncé-inspired floor routine that caught the eye of many internet users. 

UCLA clinched the top spot over Utah at the gymnastics competition, and Dennis' routine gave them their much needed edge. After discovering her stellar talent for the sport, fans are now eager to learn more about the 21-year-old. 

Dennis is a decorated gymnast who has won bronze, silver, and gold medals in NCAA gymnastics tournaments. 

NIA DENNIS' HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Before becoming a worldwide sensation for her Beyoncé performance, she's already had years of experience under her belt. She's competed for the US in a number of tournaments, being part of the national team since 2012. 

She first began her career at the Buckeye Gymnastics center in Ohio, before moving to Naperville, Illinois with her family. Now, she studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she competes for her school with the rest of their squad. 

HER GYMNASTICS ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Dennis is a decorated gymnast who has won bronze, silver, and gold medals in NCAA gymnastics tournaments. Since her viral performance, newfound fans have discovered her other floor routines thanks to her Instagram page that now boasts thousands of followers. 

Nia Dennis' rise to fame comes just a year after her teammate, Katelyn Ohashi, took the gymnastics world by storm after earning a perfect 19 for her routine at the Under Armour 2019 Collegiate Challenge.

TAKING AFTER KATELYN OHASHI

Last year, Ohashi was the reigning NCAA co-champion in floor exercises, and was also a 2018 NCAA team champion. She was competing at an elite level of gymnastics prior to her stint in UCLA, but due to back and shoulder injuries, she decided to just compete on the collegiate level. 

For her perfect 10 routine, she did three backflips, landed into a Split, and got up to end her routine as though it's something as natural as walking. Of course, the crowd went wild as the senior stood there beaming with pride.

A year later, Nia Dennis would get the same reaction from the crowd, drawing from the energetic Beyoncé routine she had planned for the competition.
