Liberty Barros is a 12-year-old contortionist from Leicester, U.K.
Barros can bend her body into some pretty outrageous shapes, including practically folding herself backward and numerous other pretzel-like positions. But oddly enough, she discovered her talent by accident.
“A few years ago I saw people doing really flexible stuff in YouTube videos and I wanted to try it because it looked cool and fun,” Liberty told the Leicester Mercury. “So I tried it and did it straight away. Most contortionists you see, they have to get twisted into those positions, but I can do it completely naturally.”
You can peep Barros dressed as Elastigirl, AKA the “bendiest girl in the world,” from Pixar’s animated superhero film The Incredibles. Barros did a handstand on parallel bars and brought her legs completely over her head before getting into a few more strange positions on the floor.
The 12-year-old has traveled the world since discovering her unique talent and has performed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaya and Hollywood. She was even offered a contract with the American youth circus Le PeTIT CiRqUe.
Despite the success, Barros is still pretty down-to-earth.
