Johanna Quaas is the world’s oldest active and competitive gymnast representing Germany at the 91, and her skill and ability are simply jaw-dropping.

According to Straits Times Quaas got her start in competitive gymnastics at 10 years old, but when her family moved from Saxony in then East Germany to a different part of the country, she was forced to quit. When World War II erupted, she was required, as were all children, to do a year of social service. So, she worked on a farm.

When the war ended, gymnastics were banned, so she took up handball and even won the Eastern German Championship in 1954.


After raising three children and coaching youth in gymnastics, Quaas decided to dip her toes into the sport again at the age of 57.

She trained with two friends, who have since passed, and began competing at the national level.

“My proudest moment so far was when I was 84 years old and there was no one in my age group competing in the championships. So they put me with the others in the 70-75 age group and I still won by one point,” she said.

Quaas cross-trains for one hour a day, not only focusing on gymnastics but incorporating hiking, swimming, and dancing into her routine.

And, it’s proved to work wonders as the great-grandmother climbs into her 90s. As of 2017, she wasn’t taking any medication.
