Amazing 87 Year Old Gymnast Flips Like 20 Year Old! (Video)
Her name is Johanna Quaas and she's from Halle,Germany. She is also in the Guiness Book of Records for her feats as a gymnast. Oh, I forgot to mention...Johanna is 87 years old!
Johanna was born in 1925. Remarkably the retired PE teacher only began to train at gymnastics in her 50s taking part in her first competition at the age of 56.
Johanna says she has always been involved in sports dating her to a childhood. Because of her responsibilities as a mother and wife, she wasn't able to dedicate herself to gymnastics until later in life. Joanna has a strict exercise regimen that involves a combination of running and yoga. She says, "It is a great feeling to be included and I hope my record inspires others to realize it's never too late."
