Palestinian teenager Mohammed al-Sheikh, 12, shows his skills on a table in Gaza city on April 28, 2016.
Mohammed al-Sheikh is only 12 and feels trapped in Gaza but he dreams of a Guinness world record for a series of stunning backflips and his almost unbelievable body contortions. Mohammed, just 1.37 metres (four foot, six inches) tall and weighing 29 kilograms (64 pounds), can bend his body in seemingly impossible ways, throwing his feet over his shoulders with reckless abandon or jumping into a spider-like pose. / AFP / MAHMUD HAMS        (Photo credit should read MAHMUD HAMS/AFP/Getty Images)
