|Anastasia IV takes to the (h)air|
suspended by her scalp while the rest of the
Circus of Horrors look on.
Following on from my previous post about the fastest dog on a tightrope, here's another record breaker. Joanna Sawicka - better known as Circus of Horrors star Anastasia IV has entered the new 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of Records for lifting the greatest weight with her hair - 53.4 kg or 117lbs 11 oz, which is the weight of another person who was suspended from her hair while she was hanging upside down.
Originally from Poland, Anastasia IV was studying to be a bio chemist at London's City of Westminster University when she saw the Circus of Horrors and gave up her scientific ambitions to join them as the girl with the superhuman hair.
Be sure to catch her hair-raising antics in the Circus of Horrors, which will have a Monday night residency at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftsbury Avenue, in the heart of the West End from October 28 to December 16. The show will also be on tour around the country on the other days of the week. Click here for Circus of Horrors tour dates.
