      The King of the Splits

      April 27, 2012

      Flickr user CS87, AKA Chris, has a passion for stretching. In order to prove this to the world, he likes to spend his spare time taking pictures of himself doing the splits.

      "I'm just an ordinary guy who enjoys the freedom of flexibility," he explains. "All my flexibility is self taught. I have had no hands on, or professional training. I have never participated in any sports. As a child, I was never flexible. I remember when I was in elementary school sitting in the hallway with my back against the wall, I could barely keep my legs straight out in front of my body without bending my knees. (Making a "L" shape) I didn't start stretching until I was around 15.

      "I also enjoy video gameing."

      I don't have much to add to this, mostly because I'm just in awe. Check him out!
