Ivy Lu is her name and going viral is her game. 

Lu, a star on the Gophers women's gymnastics team, scored a perfect 10 on the balance beam at the GymQuarters NCAA Mardi Gras Invitation last week. 

It took until now for her performance to catch fire on the web, but her 80 seconds of brilliance is worth your time. 

Her perfect score on the beam came shortly after she scored a stunning 9.975 on the bars, according to KSTP – and that was her second straight week with a near perfect score on the bars. 

KSTP adds that she's just the second Gopher ever to register a perfect 10, and only the fifth in the NCAA this season. 

Naturally, Lu was named the Big Ten Specialist of the Week.
