If running was all about style, this teen would be an Olympic Gold medallist.

While lining up for a high school 100m race on Wednesday, Kelly Nicole Lopez did something a little more fun than usual when getting into the starting blocks.

She mixed up some gymnastics with her track and field and perfectly executed a flip back into a handstand before fitting her feet in the starting block.

 

 

Kelly, who's in her second year at Mountain Hills High School went on win the race.

 

Clearly, she's going places.
