Who Is The Most Flexible Person In The World?
I cannot believe what people can do with their bodies… it’s unreal. The most flexible person in the world (who even knew this was a contest??) can bend and contort in ways you’ve never imagined.
Why would you?
When it comes to the most flexible person in the world, there are a lot of contenders. However, we’ve chosen to feature two shining lights in the industry: a Guinness World Record holder, and a shining YouTube star.
Meet Daniel Browning Smith (AKA Rubberboy)
This multi-talented “Rubberboy”, born May 8, 1979, is the most flexible person in the world. He discovered his flexibility as a young man jumping off the bed and landing in the full splits.
Inspired by contortionists from a very young age, he dreamed up the dream to become the worlds most flexible person and best contortionist. Big dreams for a little kid… but they came true! In his teens, Daniel started to perform on the street with his technique, attracting immediate attention.
When he turned 18, he joined the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, and from there he took contortion training with a contortionist master known as Lu Yi at the San Francisco School of Circus Arts.
After creating a name for himself, Daniel went on to receive a total of seven Guinness World Records for his flexibility! So if you’re wondering who is the most flexible person in the world, the official answer is this guy… for now.
Sofie Dossi Bends Belief
Seems career opportunities are vast for skilled contortionists… however it doesn’t come without a cost.
Sofie Dossi is a 20-year-old American YouTuber, contortionist, gymnast, and actress. She’s sponsored by big companies like Airheads and bioClarity, and has her own clothing line. Plus, in addition to 4.3 million followers on Instagram, she also has nearly seven million subscribers on YouTube.
She has, however, had to work and train extremely hard to become so strong and flexible at the same time. She requires a dazzling balance of the two in order to be able to do what she does.
She’s got a great sense of humour, and makes videos of herself contorting and doing zany stuff in public places, like when she crashed an In-N-Out Burger and ate a hamburger with her feet!
How Is Such Flexibility Possible??
How is such flexibility even possible? Do these people not have bones? In the case of Daniel Browning Smith, he has a medical condition that literally allows him to dislocate his joints and bend in unbelievable ways.
With Sofie Dossi, she has a naturally flexible spine, which she’s trained over the years. She started building her contortion skills when she was a kid training in gymnastics, and it took off from there.
If you’re wondering how you can get as flexible as these people, you better have some pretty bendy DNA!
