The world-renowned Lillia Stepanova entertained fans during the halftime portion of Wednesday night’s Timberwolves home game.


Stepanova is a contortionist from Moldova who has performed at NBA games around the country. Lillia may be most known for her appearance on America’s Got Talent, where she introduced the world to her unique skill set.


The full Twin Cities crowd was in awe as Stepanova performed all sorts of body contortions and balancing moves at center court. However, the crowd went crazy for her most well known trick.


While balancing on hand canes, she performed a bout of archery with her feet. The arrow flew bulls eye into the target… amazing the Wolves fans and bringing them to their feet.
