Watch her impressive performance right now:

Johanna’s answer to the question if she ever felt aches and pains as a result of her exercise regime:

“Not at all, as soon as I wake up, I’m an early bird so my morning routine is running up and down the stairs.” -Johanna Quaas (source)

Watch Johanna Quaas, 86 Year-Old Gymnast, performing on the Parallel Bars:

In addition to Gymnastics she also goes running, and she regularly does yoga.

She said, as reported by DailyMail, that she had been born into a family of gymnasts and did the sport for a time as a child. She gave it up to get married and have children and then started it again in her Fifties. Her first competition was at the age of 56.

Here some more amazing performance of Johanna on the floor:

She says that she has stopped participating in regular competitions and now does gymnastics “just for fun”, MSNBC reported. Maybe it’s because there isn’t much competition in her age group. The only other athletes in the senior category are in their mid-70s.

“I hope the record inspires others to realize it’s never too late.” -Johanna
