Russian-born Julia Günthel aka Zlata can contort herself 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.

She said: 'As soon as I started doing it I was addicted and I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.'

Super supple: Zlata can stretch into the splits but also squeeze herself in to a small box

But it wasn't always so easy as a child as many of Zlata's peers were jealous of her ability.

She explained: 'In Russia being flexible is a very good thing to be because everyone is really into gymnastics. Some of the other girls didn't like how good I was.'

Zlata said she has to work out rigorously every day to stay in shape and maintain her flexibility.
