86-year old Johanna Quaas Doing Gymnastics

Gymnastics have never been my thing. In high school gymnastics classes, even the thought of the parallel bars, the Pomell horse, the vault and the rings sent me into a tizzy. Lets just say that I was a total klutz. When I saw this video of 86 year old Johanna Quaas doing a floor routine (and, in the second video, a bars routine), I was again filled with the wish to-JUST ONCE- bound across the mats with a perfect 10 aerial. Or, perhaps to receive a 9.5 for my flips, twists and release moves on the parallel bars. Hope springs eternal for the 16 year old within who still yearns to fly!!
