Johanna Quaas is an 86-year-old gymnast.  She recently took part in the 2012 Cottbus World Cup doing exhibition events on floor and parallel bars and she is amazing!  The German octogenarian said that she has been competing in gymnastics since her 20′s and was part of the East German champion handball team.

While Quaas’ parallel bars routine, embedded above, is incredible, she was also quite graceful on the floor exercise.  Johanna is certainly an inspiration for what is possible if you continue to exercise and work out throughout your life.  No excuses!  Get out there and get moving!
