Most flexible woman in the world
Zlata is a Russian-born gymnast. She has been seen as the most flexible woman in the world. She has shown her incredible flexibility in eye-watering photos - because she wanted to 'emphasise her charms' after splitting from her husband.
The contortionist even wears racy outfits and poses in an array of shapes for her 2016 calendar which see her showing her suppleness and is able to bend backwards at a 90 degree angle, so the back half of her hands touch her feet even while wearing stilettos. Zlata's gift of flexibility was discovered when she was four years old and by six she was training as a contortionist at a circus school.
