86 - year-old grandma does gymnastics
Go Granny, Go!

86-y-o wows audience.

Johanna Quaas, 86, isn't taking old age lying down. Instead, she's taking it spinning, jumping and twirling -- on the parallel bars, no less. Last month, Quaas wowed the audience at the 2012 Cottbus World Cup in Cottbus, Germany, according to the Post Chronicle. Clad in a green leotard, she performed exhibition displays on both the floor and parallel bars. Though the white-haired wonder has won 11 medals in senior gymnastic competitions, MSNBC reported, she currently practices gymnastics "just for fun." It should be no surprise that this German octogenarian has a long history of athletic excellence. In 1954, Quaas was a member of the handball team that took the Eastern German Championship, she told Gym Media. by Hilary Hanson Original Post: Huffington Post - April 02, 2012 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/02/johanna-quaas-86-year-old-gymnast-cottbus-world-cup_n_1397152.html
