Two-Year-Old Gymnast Performs Awe-Inspiring Moves Including Backflips And Balancing Splits

Gymnastics can be mind-boggling at the best of times, but replace the adult doing backward somersaults with a two-year-old and it's even more staggering.

Two-year-old Arat Hosseini from Iran performs impressive moves, such as climbing walls with just his hands and balancing splits, every day.

The toddler has more than 22,000 followers on Instagram where his exercise videos receive an awestruck response.

Speaking to the MailOnline, the boy's dad, Mohamad said: "Arat is an extra special person and in sport he will be unattainable - he will succeed."

The proud dad added that Arat started practising gymnastics when he was only nine months old, yet he has never had any professional training.

He said he first noticed how much strength his son had after watching his playful activities, when rolling around turned into backwards rolls and handstands.

The clips on the Instagram page also show Arat performing backwards flips onto mattresses, climbing brick walls and doing the splits on top of the TV. Not kidding.
