While we may struggle to put on our socks each morning, one Chinese grandma has been impressing passersby with her incredible flexibility.
At a park in the city of Xi’an, the 77-year-old woman, surnamed He, can do the splits and then some, raising her legs off the ground to hold a wooden pole which one of her fellow performers then stands on.
She says that she wasn’t always this insanely flexible. In fact, in her sixties her health was poor and she suffered from back problems leaving her unable to walk completely upright. At home, she would crawl around, causing her grandson to compare her to a gorilla.
However, her life changed completely when a friend took her to the park to exercise. Over time, she became fitter, stronger, more flexible. Now she says she feels 10 years younger than her age.
