It has been a great Olympics season for nerds everywhere. From homages to shows like Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Witcher, and more, geeky goodness was everywhere in Tokyo. Though the games have concluded, moments of fannish love are still emerging. One of the most beautiful displays comes in the form of a Sailor Moon rhythmic gymnastics routine, performed by the Uzbekistani team.

Though rhythmic gymnastics is a lesser-known Olympic event, there’s no denying the intensity of skill necessary to compete. But, for long-time fans of the anime, this routine pulls on the heartstrings as well.

Watching this routine will definitely have fans singing along to the theme’s lyrics in their heads.
