LSU gymnast Lloimincia Hall's spirited dance moves and stellar tumbling earned her another perfect 10 over the weekend, and now the Louisiana State University student's floor routine has gone viral.

Hall, an LSU junior, earned her third perfect 10 of the season Saturday on the floor exercise at the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional competition, but it was a video clip of her performance from a January meet against Alabama that's scoring big views on YouTube.

As of Wednesday, the clip has received more than 418,000 views and Hall has been featured in national media outlets like USA Today, "Good Morning America," and People magazine.

"I think it's just amazing," Hall told The Daily Reveille of her newfound publicity this week. "I mean, it's truly a blessing to be able to touch so many lives and that was something that I thank God for, I thank the team, I thank the community for just giving me the opportunity to just be a part of such a wonderful team."

But, Hall noted, she's trying to stay focused as the LSU Tigers head for the NCAA Championships later this month.

"It's not about all the distractions; it’s about a national championship for this team," she said. "That’s something I stood my ground on when I chose to not look at the publicity. I chose to turn it off and not deal with it because it didn't have anything to do with LSU gymnastics winning a national championship."

The LSU women's gymnastics team will now compete in the Semifinal I round of competition at the NCAA Championships in Birmingham, Ala., April 18.
