Some of you will remember my meeting with the Kosovan ex gymnast at the beach last weekend. He is 46 years old, and not only does handstands to cool off after his morning run, but also did several of these, and was as steady as a rock. I was in total awe.

Wow, that’s amazing. My son loves to push himself to do things like this; I’m sure he’d love to learn how to do this. 🙂
WOWWWWW!!! Fit he is, indeed.
This was the conclusion I came to as well. 🙂
Impressive – he has it so he can show it off! When are you going to show him a thing or tow?
I was rather hoping you could do that. 🙂
me? heehee – you’re funny. i’ll try but I won’t bet on it 🙂
Never say “never.”
good point, will start practicing 🙂
Yep, totally fit. Wish we can be all like him.
I agree. 🙂
Well this is very inspiring! 🙂
Glad you found it so. 🙂
Gob-smacked pretty much says it all.
That word does come in useful quite often, Gunta. 😀
Wow… great captured.. !!
Thanks, Bams. 🙂
Wow! Can you imagine the kind of core strength that requires? Truly awesome 🙂
It takes a lot of discipline and dedication to get to this point, I’m sure. 🙂
Wow amazing, usually only see that trick in the circus
Yes, I I had a free show, Pommepal. 🙂
Now that. That’s a man that can hold a pose 😉
They are quite brilliant, gymnasts.
Gotta admire the stamina. 🙂
I just want you to know that IF I could, I would definitely do that every day. But I have been given the talent of being able to sit for long periods of time at Starbucks, enjoying a fragrant cup of hot coffee. It is a difficult physical activity. It seems I have the perfect musculature for that particular exercise. I go with my strengths – no pun intended…. Hugs 🙂
Bwahahaha……I love your sense of humour, Rebecca. I’m sure Starbucks is very glad of your patronage. Hugs back to you. 🙂
Wow! You were right. This is amazing! 🙂
Glad you agree, Inga. 🙂
Reblogged this on lost creek publishing.
Thanks, JK. It is rather amazing. 🙂
Holy Moly, that is amazing. Was you tempted to have a go?
Well actually not tempted, Ruth. My pole-dancing days are behind me. 🙂
Total awe is right. WOW!
😀 I was also sort of gob-smacked.
Yikes! Is he married? 😉
He has grown up sons, but I didn’t ask him if he’s married. Hubby was with me. 🙂
that is so impressive, what strength and concentration me must have! To be that half that fit would be great… 🙂
I agree with you, Heather.
Imagine the focus as well as the strength and control, unbelievable!
Yes, and he did extra ones just so I could take photos. Awesome guy. 😯
The power of wind. 😉
Absolutely, Frank. One might expect this to happen in Cape Town where it gets extremely windy, but this phenomenon rarely happens here. 😀
Of course …. it’s Paradise.
Indubitably so. 🙂
Great shot hon! Lovely entry too. 🙂 *hugs*
Thanks so much, Sonel. 🙂
You’re welcome hon. 🙂 *hugs*
Phew, the north-easter was really gusting! Just as well he had good grip. One gets completely blown away by this … 🙂
Hahaha. Great comment as always, Col. 😀
How did you get that picture of me..??
Hehehe. Well, I sneaked up on you whilst you were showing off. 😀
Jeez seriously?! That is cool but kind of scary in a way too. 😯 🙂
Hahaha He did seem kinda driven, Phil. Told us that his sons ate too much junk food and wouldn’t listen to him when he tried to talk some health sense into them.
Wow, I knew you would have a great photo today after your teaser last week! I don’t think any amount of sit ups would get me up there. 🙂
Hehehe. Nor me, but I’ll keep doing the sit ups and taking the tablets. 😀
Dude. This is awesome. Totally awesome. I don’t even think I could do that if I trained for a year.
Never say “never”, TG. He is rather awesome though. I have to agree. Bet I never see him again. 😕
Dude … never say never. You might see him 🙂
I would be in awe too. My goodness he is my age and look at him 😀
Well there you go, Paula. What are you waiting for? 😀
Not going to happen 😀 my risks are of a different nature less limby and more dangerous :D, but still to be able to see people my own age turn into this … there is hope!!!
As the saying goes, “While there’s life, there’s hope.” 🙂
True, but there must be some activity less demanding for a hedonist like me 😀
Glad you thought so too, Stefan. 🙂
That seems almost impossible. Is her superman? Wow! Guess I need to do some sit ups!
He looked like a superman to me. 🙂
ME TOOOOOOOOOO !
I’m equally awestruck. Amazing what some people can do with their bodies. Frightening to know how little I manage in comparison
Yes it is, Susan. I’d love to have a party trick like that up my sleeve. 🙂
Taught him everything he knows…
Yeah, right! 😀
It’s true. You can’t quite see him but the really big guy who is just out of shot. I hope you didn’t think I was referencing the lamppost chap?!
You haven’t been playing with photoshop have you AD 😉
Looking at your picture I keep expecting him to go swivelling round and round the post 😀
He IS seriously fit and strong .
I’m not that clever, Poppy. 🙂
Swivelling round the pole? Now why didn’t I think to ask him to do that for me? 😀
Absolutely amazing – wish I was that fit!
Have a great day
Thanks, Gail. Me too, but it’s never going to happen even with going to gym. 🙂 Hope your day was a good one too.
A strong man.
Very strong, and not an ounce of surplus fat on him. Very rare to see in a middle aged man. 🙂
No problem I can do this … s straight out of bed in the morning!!!!! Who I’m kidding ??? Fantastic shot.
Hahaha… Me too, Viveka. 🙂
OMG, I want to be that fit too!!
I think it takes a lot of dedication, and he said, “no junk food.”
Hmmm junk food, one of life’s little pleasures. Not quite sure I could give that up completely. Oh well, I think I will just have to settle for half fit then! 🙂
OMG! I too am in awe. 🙂 What dedication! Hugs Paula xxx
Glad you’re also impressed, Paula. Hugs to you too. 🙂
If only I were that fit. 🙂
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Me too. 🙂
