Contortion is the art of flexibility. By twisting and bending the body in certain ways, the contortionist can perform gymnastic feats that are striking and admirably difficult. In these photos, Russian gymnast Zlata performs eye watering contortion.
In her 2016 calendar, Zlata demonstrates her flexibility in sexy outfits. In her personal favourite pose, she shows how she can reach backwards and touch the floor, all while wearing stilettos and licking a lollipop.
