Julia Günthel aka Zlata – the World’s Bendiest Woman

For many of us, simply bending over to touch our toes can be a difficult. But it’s not a problem for the world’s bendiest woman Julia Günthel aka Zlata (27). Russian-born Zlata can twist herself like a snake into the most extreme poses imaginable – and has broken numerous world records for her flexibility. The former gymnast, who is 5ft 8in, is so flexible she can cram herself into a 50cm squared box. Photos by Barcroft Media.
