Here she is: the greatest contortionist alive. Zlata has turned being flexible into fine art. It helps that she’s beautiful and has a flair for drama. No one can strike a pose like her! Feast your eyes…
You’ll be amazed at what you see. We’re sure that some of you have uttered the words “I’m pretty flexible” but not like this! What you’re about to see just doesn’t seem to be humanly possible. Wouldn’t it be funny if, when she was a little girl, her mother told her to stop doing that or she would end up stuck in that position?
Oh, and one more thing… don’t try this at home!
What’s In The Fridge?
Zlata, born Julia Günthel, is regarded as the world’s most flexible woman.
Zlata In The Rain
Though she was born in, and spent her early years in Kazakhstan, she’s lived in Germany most of her life.
She’s been doing this since she was four, and so never gave her body a chance to become stiff in the first place.
Green Queen Snake
While a young girl in Kazakhstan, she was a gymnast for several years.
Lady In Red
When she moved to Germany she began her career as a contortionist.
Now she performs worldwide as ‘The Goddess of Contortion.’
Zlata models, sometimes for fetish magazines, and does performance art.
Perky In White
She celebrated her divorce in grand style – by putting out a calendar.
She has set three Guinness World Records. For instance, she holds the record for ‘fastest time to burst three balloons with the back’ – 12 seconds. Think you can do better?
A Smile For The Paparazzi
Zlata has appeared on the Discovery Channel.
Dig Those Funky Platforms
In the segment about her, doctors scanned her in an MRI machine. They found that her ligaments were as flexible as an infant’s.
Back In Black
Now she wants to focus on acting. Among her films, you can find her in ‘Holy Motors,’ starring Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue.
