Monday Morning Motivation – The ballerina on the golden bicycle

Close up of Lilly Yokoi

Lilly Yokoi was an acrobat who specialised in performing on a golden bicycle. During her career, she toured around the world and appeared on the Ed Sullivan show three times.

Yokoi did some stunts that definitely seemed before-their-time. These tricks included:

  • a no-hands handlebar spin
  • a no-hands wheelie
  • a handstand over the handlebars

Yokoi managed all of this in high-heeled shoes!
