Flexibility - Too Much?

Am I the only one who finds some of the images of Julia disturbing? I mean... really??

Yes, it's amazing that she has that flexibility. Yes, it's an impressive display of athleticism. But at what point does the athleticism take precedence over the art? Have we set artistic merit into the back seat, possibly even the trunk, and just decided to go with sheer force?

This isn't what I would call skating, it's more like rhythmic gymnastics on skates.

I mean, yeah, it's pretty cool...

But yikes.

Art is meant to make you feel things.
The only thing this makes me feel is shock.
