It looks like Carrie Underwood has inspired a future Olympian Christopher Polk/Getty Images for TNT

It’s bound to be an anthem for goal setters of all kinds, but Carrie Underwood’s new single, “The Champion” is definitely finding its way into plenty of gyms and dance schools, as well as in promotional pieces for the Super Bowl and the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea.

But there’s a possibility “The Champion” could also find its way into the Summer Olympics in a few more years. One little gymnast is already creating a routine set to the inspiring tune.

Carrie shared a video clip on her Instagram of a young lady going through a portion of her routine. The tenacious tumbler bucks the system by utilizing aspects of both the floor exercise and the horizontal bar as she flips, rolls, kicks, and swings through her beautifully choreographed dance with ponytail bouncing.


This isn’t the first piece of video that the country music superstar has shared that shows how individuals are utilizing her new smash in their motivating workouts. In fact, there’s another clip that shows a female weightlifter going through her workout. And to say it is impressive is an understatement. A big one.

Another video shows members of the Millennium Dance Complex in Las Vegas performing a choreographed hip-hop number. No, it isn’t a two-step, but it sure looks like fun!

Carrie hasn’t mentioned who she is pulling for in this year’s Super Bowl, but since she’s really a Dallas Cowboys fan, she may be tuning in as much for the commercials as the actual game. And hey, even vegans have junk food, so … snacks!

Regardless, the Philadelphia Eagles take on the New England Patriots Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, and we know country artist Scotty McCreery will be watching to see if his pal, Tom Brady, gets his sixth Super Bowl ring.

Then, the Olympics kick off on Feb. 7 in Pyeongchang County, South Korea with biathlon, luge, ski jumping, alpine skiing, figure skating and the oh-so-interesting curling all starting before the actual official opening ceremony takes place on Feb. 9. The day after the breathtaking parade of countries that introduces the participants to this year’s Olympic games, Olympic ice hockey begins, and we’re betting that if the Preds aren’t playing, Carrie, Mike and baby boy Isaiah will be tuning in to cheer on Team U.S.A. The U.S. Olympic hockey team has two gold medals, including one for the exciting 1980 “Miracle On Ice” victory over Russia.

But, you know … we wouldn’t mind a third.
