You Want Me to Bend My What, Where?


I’m sure I don’t need to remind my well-versed in gymnastics moves audience what the Marinelli Pose is; but for those unfortunate few who AREN’T familiar, it’s an incredibly difficult “inverted backbend where the whole body is supported by the mouth by gripping onto a short post that is held between the gums.” Cake!

Well, Iona Luvsandorj, 28, a resident of West Hempstead in London who was born and raised in Mongolia has been training as a contortionist for 19 years and the other day held the demanding pose for a full 33 seconds, setting a new Guiness Record by over 11 seconds. Luvsandorj is now in school studying to become a lawyer but clearly her contortionist training is still very important to her. However, despite the ridiculousness of how hard this pose looks, for Luvsandorj, it’s not a huge deal.

“It’s not painful – if it was I wouldn’t be here now. But there are very few people that can do what I am about to do, so don’t try this at home,” she said.

Yeah, I don’t she needs to worry about me trying this out on my own…
