86-year-old woman sets record as world’s oldest gymnast
An 86-year-old woman from Germany recently set a world record after she competed in the 2012 Cottbus World Cup, wowing judges and earning the title of world’s oldest gymnast.
It may sound cute, but Johanna Quaas isn’t joking around. After years of competition, she’s won 11 various medals, but says she’s still doing it today for fun and exercise.
Appearing at last month’s Cottbus World Cup in Germany, audiences and judges were blown away by her floor and parallel bar routines, which saw the senior flipping, twisting, hand-springing and dancing her way to an almost certain viral video stardom.
