Former Russian gymnast Zlata, aged 28, is one of the world's most extreme contortionists.

Known as the world's bendiest woman, she can effortlessly twist herself into the most impossible shapes and positions.

Zlata has been contorting herself since she was four years old, reports online sources.

She turned her back on gymnastics and joined an after-school circus class after discovering how much she liked it. She has not looked back ever since.

Check out her pictures from Sina below. Photos 8 onwards show other awkward model poses and embarrassing photos.
