101-Year Old Woman That Is More Extreme Than You!

A 101-year-old woman sets a world record!

A great grandmother in the US became the oldest woman in the world to paraglide, after she took the flight to celebrate her 101st birthday. Mary Allen Hardison was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records last Tuesday for the adventure, after her 75-year-old son Allen went paragliding and she decided not to be beaten. Four generations of her family – from children to great grandchildren – were on hand to watch her take off, rigged up in tandem with a qualified instructor.

“I feel very humble in setting a new Guinness World Record. My desire is for the elderly to keep on going, do things as long as you are physically able. Be positive,” Guinness quoted her.

“If it’s safe for them, then it’s safe for me,” she said.

“I don’t want my son to do something that I can’t.”
