Can you touch your toes? How about do the splits? Get a leg behind your head? Any of those and you’re stunning us with your crazy flexibility. We can barely stand up straight, we’re so old and stiff. But just how bendy can a human being get? Well, you’d need to ask ‘Zlata’ – a contortionist from Leipzig in Germany. Because she’s the world’s most flexible woman!
Get ready to be absolutely STUNNED!
The former gymnast can twist and turn her body into the most insane poses.
Zlata’s real name is Julia Guenthel.
She’s 5ft 8″. When she stands up straight, that is!
But just what is it that makes Zlata so very special?
Well, it’s her ligaments. They’re as flexible as a newborn baby, with so much more ‘elastine’ in than other people.
Unsurprisingly, experts say that if most people attempted the moves that Zlata has perfected, they’d break their backs!
Some people call her ‘The Human Folding Chair’.
And her moves are often as visually stunning as they are a little gross!
We mean… How is this even possible?!
