Lots of Practice: 87-Year-Old Grandma the Gymnast

grannySeen here pulling off an amazing feat of strength that I have never and will never be able to match is Johanna Quaas. Her and her 87 years hold the Guinness World Record for being the oldest practicing gymnast. When I’m 87 years old I doubt I’ll be able to do anything with the ease and grace that Johanna pulls off on her parallel bars routine.

Last time I tried to do anything resembling gymnastics I spent the next four days in the hospital. Don’t worry though, I was perfectly fine I just had a lot of people visit. You kind of feel obligated to visit when you miss the jump that bad and smash their human pyramid. And bones.

Hit the jump for a couple of videos.
