86-Year-Old Gymnast Makes Us Feel Fat, Lazy
These days, seniors are more active than ever. If you don’t believe us, just watch a commercial for heart medication or penis pills.
Eighty-six year old Johanna Quaas is taking spryness to a whole new level. Watch her shockingly good floor routine at the 2012 Cottbus Gymnastic World Cup in Germany last week.
If you didn’t see that grey hair, you’d have never guessed she was anywhere close to 86. Quaas is no one-trick pony. The octogenarian — who didn’t take up gymnastics until age 30 — is also a whiz on the parallel bars.
We’re so impressed that we’ve decided not to make any jokes about broken hips. Somebody needs to check her birth certificate though. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a female gymnast lied about her age.
