STORY



Yes, she's 86 years old. Though we won't see her compete in London with that routine, as women don't compete on the parallel bars, she did pull out some impressive strength and flexibility moves.



Quass' exhibition was part of an event that did feature two Americans who are potential Olympians in 2012. Paul Ruggeri and John Orozco won silver and bronze medals for their work on the high bar. But there is no question who walked away from the event the biggest star: Joanna Quass and her inspiring routine.




i think this is phuggin awesome! 86 years old and can still get around like this!

thanks for this!! this is just the inspirational thing I need to show to my grandmother. she is walking bad at that age and her doctors give her a ton of prescriptions that don't help. being active is the answer.

Being active is only the answer if you are in good health. Many elderly, even some who are younger, have bone loss, joint problems and can tear or break bones or harm their joints so easily. Overdoing anything can also cause illness which can lead to complications.

So, doing things in a refined reduced modified manner is very important for anyone who is physically challenged.

One thing that seems to help with joint pain is virgin or extra virgin coconut oil, about a tbsp a day. If you have a hard time swallowing pills then take it at the time you take vitamins, swallow a little then dip each pill into this, and finish off with more.
