Shin Soo-ji, a South Korean Olympic rhythmic gymnast, threw out the first pitch at a baseball game at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul Friday, but it was her acrobatic delivery that left all the players stunned.

Soo-ji, 22, put her own twist — literally — on the ceremonious first pitch before the game between the Doosan Bears and the Samsung Lions.

Soo-Ji finished 12th in the individual all-around at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 — the best finish by any Korean rhythmic gymnast in history.

The pitch caused a stir online, where commenters cheered the gymnast's abilities.

"Talk about pitching from the stretch!" one person wrote on the Huffington Post's website.

"Now THAT was cool," another posted.

Twitter users were also amazed at Soo-ji's flexible feat.
