Nice position: A splendid display of acrobatics skills by this lady is a must watch.

This beautiful lady reminds me of Elastic Girl in the movie called The incredible. Take a look at her pictures as she displays wonderful acrobatics skills.

Since the performances of famous gymnasts such as Olga Korbut and Nadia Comaneci in the 1970s, women's artistic gymnastics (WAG) has been characterised as a problematic child sport. Numerous studies have identified medical and psychological issues associated with competing at a high level at a young age, such as stunted growth, bone deformity and distorted body image. However, recently there have been several gymnasts appearing at the highest international level of considerably older age, the most famous being Oksana Chusovitina who has competed at a remarkable six Olympic Games including the London Olympics at age 37. To date, while there has been extensive research on the problems experienced by younger gymnasts, there has been no research examining older gymnasts and the effects of seeing 'older' bodies on the gymnastics competition floor.
