UCLA's gymnastics team is nationally known for their skill and creativity within the sport, but the athletes' sideline support is something extra special. On Feb. 19, freshman Chae Campbell brought her "Desert Goddess"-themed floor routine to the competition and inspired her team to dance alongside her as she hit every move. Teamwork obviously makes the dream work, since Campbell ended up absolutely wowing the judges - to the tune of a 9.95 score.

You can spot UCLA's team matching Campbell move for move off-mat as she works her way through the choreography. Some skills, however, like the connected leaps and double backflips, can only be credited to the talented freshman. She'll certainly be one to watch this season and throughout the rest of her collegiate career. Check out the full rhythmic floor routine, below, and then catch-up on another unbelievable routine from Campbell's UCLA teammate, Nia Dennis.
