You Won't Believe What This 89-Year-Old Gymnast Can Do

As the world's oldest active gymnast, German-born Johanna Quaas is challenging expectations and proving that even at 89 years old, she can flip, spin, and plank with the best of them. Johanna first caught the media's attention in 2012 (when she was a strong and spry 86), after videos captured her performing routines during the Turnier der Meister in Cottbus, Germany, proving that with passion, drive, and determination, anything is possible. Watch Johanna dominate the parallel bars, and then head to her Facebook page for even more age-defying inspiration.
