Nevertheless, DeJesus was proud of her accomplishment. “My sister Savannah is an awesome dancer. She helped me with the [choreography] and made it more fun,” she said after the match, via The New York Times.

“I love dancing,” she added. “I wanted to end my senior year with a bang.”

“Commentators mostly talk about tumbling because it seems to be more impressive to an audience and it’s easier to spot the deductions in landings, height and form,” Peszek, 24, said. “The great thing about routines like Sophina’s is that they bring energy and life not only to the audience, but the rest of the team watching.”
