Watch This 86-Year-Old Gymnast Put Us All to Shame [Video]

This is Joanna Quaas, and she is an accomplished German gymnast. She is also 86 years old. She’s about to make you feel really bad about your current fitness level, so consider yourself warned. Yes, Joanna Quaas kicks all of our asses. After the jump, watch her on the parallel bars. The parallel bars.

No, really: the parallel bars. Her upper-body strength is enviable, to say the least.

So, anyone else going to the gym tonight?

    Holy crap!

  • Sarah Nelson

    What’s craziest is parallel bars are MEN ONLY in competition. Not sure why, maybe because they don’t think women are strong enough, but she just blew that misconception out of the water!

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, she’s German; those people are ubermenschen.

  • Joanna

    I can do that but I don’t want to.

  • Life Lessons

    OMG she is awesome!! And she is wearing glasses for the parrallet bars. Go you!

  • Ivy Miller Sciandra

    Back in the day though, women worked on these parallel bars.  They eventually made them uneven and then they progressed to what they are now.
