Watch Zaya Wade Nail This Cartwheel Challenge on Instagram

Prepare to Be Impressed by 13-Year-Old Zaya Wade's Backflip and Cartwheel Routine

Competition is in their blood! Over the weekend, two of Dwyane Wade's children โ€” 18-year-old Zaire and 13-year-old Zaya โ€” challenged each other to a sunshine-filled cartwheel competition, and wow, did they deliver. First, Zaire put his basketball flexibility to the test with a round of nine nonstop cartwheels and smooth dance moves, but what Zaya did next had the whole family applauding and cheering from afar. We're so sorry, Zaire, but the winner was unanimous! With cartwheels, backflips, and an unexpected split at the end, she totally nailed this challenge. She must've taken notes from stepmom Gabrielle Union and the rest of the Clovers in Bring It On.

After dyeing her hair bright blue, photographing Union for Self magazine, and, most recently, her gold-medal-worthy floor routine, Zaya is wowing us with her talents while remaining unapologetically herself. Check out the impressive video above.
