A 102-year-old woman became the world’s oldest skydiver last weekend, falling 14,000 feet through the skies above Australia to raise money for charity and making the rest of us look like a bunch of lazy waste cases. It wasn’t the first time Irene O’Shea had taken the plunge from an airplane, either. She did her first jump on her 100th birthday. This time she set a world record and used the opportunity to get the word out about the Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia, a charity researching ALS and other neurodegenerative disorders.
… Officially, Irene became the oldest skydiver in the world at 102 years, 194 days
