Many elements make for a great floor routine — well-executed tumbling passes, eye-catching artistry, and standout music — and Ragan Smith hits all the marks. Smith, a sophomore at the University of Oklahoma, performed a near-perfect floor routine (9.925) at Oklahoma’s Feb. 7 competition against the University of Denver and Temple University (a tri-meet that the Oklahoma Sooners won). She took her routine this season to the next level — and by next level, we mean Bey’s level.
Smith’s routine features a mashup of Beyoncé songs along with choreography that nicely flows in tandem with each recognizable hit track. You’ll hear bits of “Already,” “Run the World (Girls),” “Halo,” “Get Me Bodied,” “Naughty Girl,” “Crazy In Love,” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” She opens up with an effortless double backflip in a tucked position and finishes with a more difficult double pike.
Smith competed on the world state prior to college. She has been a US national team member six times, was selected as an alternate for the gold-medal-winning women’s Olympic gymnastics team in 2016, and won first all around at the 2017 P&G US National Gymnastics Championships. Watch her full routine above. In our eyes, it is fun when it needs to be; dramatic, too; and, as Queen Bey says, on the verge of flawless.
