UCLA's Sophina DeJesus's has gone viral thanks to her stunning, virtually flawless floor routine.

The 21 year old gymnast enthralled and stunned onlookers with her hip hop moves and impressive flips, at one point landing from a flip straight into the splits.

The video was posted to YouTube on Saturday and is heading for four million views.

Sophina earned a score of 9.925 for her routine and tied for third place.

She told the New York Times, "My sister Savannah is an awesome dancer.  She helped me with the [choreography] and made it more fun.

"I love dancing.  I wanted to end my senior year on a bang."
