Despite being 86-years-old, Johanna Quaas is considerably more flexible than us. In fact she’s been named as the world’s oldest gymnast by the Guinness World Records.

The retired PE teacher from Leipzig, Germany, only began to train at gymnastics in her 50s, and didn’t take part in her first competition at the age of 56.

Johanna says she has always been involved in sport, dating her interest in keeping fit back to a childhood memory of a new gymnasium being built in her home town. Now she has a strict exercise regime of gym workouts, running, and yoga.

Speaking of her record breaking she said: “It’s a great feeling to be in the Guinness World Records book.  I hope the record inspires others to realise it’s never too late to try something new.”
