Can you lick your elbow? Because this young man can, and so much more than that! 19-year-old Yash Shah, from Surat in the western Indian state of Gujarat has a body so flexible, he can distort it in such incredible ways! He can rotate his limbs by 360 degrees and his torso by 180 degrees. He can even squeeze himself through a tennis racket, something we have only ever seen in the circus!

He was inspired to practice the art of extreme body-bending skills after watching famous American contortionist Daniel Browning Smith. The software engineering student says: “Daniel Browning Smith is my inspiration. I started practicing contortion skills after watching his videos on YouTube. I started following him the moment I saw his acts.”

Yash practices every day for at least three hours and claims that he has never taken any lessons or engaged a coach for the craft.

“My family is very supportive. They encourage me and never asked me that I should stop doing these acts. My grandfather used to watch me practicing for hours like a coach and make sure that I learn all the acts properly.”

Yash’s mom, who works as a teacher, says his son’s flexibility is God’s gift. She says: “I feel proud of my son that he is different from others. I feel proud that unlike others he can turn his body in any direction.”

Yash also says that he has never suffered an injury while practicing his awesome skill and that he hopes to be featured in the Guinness Book of Records some day. We sure hope he gets there!
