'Peanut' is the nickname by which American Level 10 gymnast and YouTuber Katie Ours is popularly known. She previously gained recognition for her joint YouTube channel with fellow gymnast Amanda Trieschman, 'Peanut and Amanda's Life', on which she appeared throughout 2015. She currently has a separate YouTube channel titled 'Katie Ours' on which she posts short videos of her gymnastic performances. She had previously qualified for the Junior Olympic Nationals in Ft. Worth, Texas and in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is also a member of 'The Coral Girls', a homeschooled competitive gymnastics team at 1st Class Gymnastics in Annapolis, Maryland coached by Mary Thompson. She currently trains 20-24 hours per week at Docksiders Gymnastics in Millersville, Maryland under coaches Bob Oulette, Katie Williams and Jay Barrows.
- After moving to Annapolis, Maryland in the summer of 2014 to participate in 1st Class Gymnastics, Peanut became close friends with Amanda Trieschman, a fellow gymnast from there. They created a joint YouTube channel named 'Peanut and Amanda's Life' and uploaded the first video, 'All about us!', on January 27, 2015. They continued to post vlogs, challenges, and gymnastics videos on the channel and reached 1k subscribers within a month. The duo became very popular, but by the end of the year, Peanut appeared less and less on the videos. In fact, Amanda posted a birthday video from Trapeze School New York on December 27, but Peanut, whose birthday it was, was missing from the video. Amanda subsequently changed the title of the channel to 'itzamanda' in January 2016, and the channel has now become her personal channel titled 'Amanda Grace'. Peanut had already created her own channel 'Katie Ours' in September 2015. However, the first video on her channel appeared in November 2017. She only posts gymnastics videos on the channel, and has earned 14k subscribers, whereas her previous channel with Amanda has 111k subscribers. She is also popular on Instagram with 199k followers and has her own website focused on gymnastics.Recommended Lists:

There were many girls with the name Katie on her competitive team, because of which her coach gave her the nickname 'Peanut' as she was very tiny. She was initially enrolled into a public school, but later had to be homeschooled because of her travels for training and shows. She is pursuing an online course and will graduate from high school in 2021. She has three pet dogs named Joey, Teddy and Boomer. She has recently found a new hobby: armadillo racing.
