If you thought extreme outdoorsy activities were only for youngsters, think again. A couple of weeks ago, 104-and-a-year-old woman Peggy McAlpine set the world record for the oldest person to go paragliding, according to Tonic. The Scottish senior, who can barely even walk — she gets around via wheelchair (at least in the video below) — launched off a 2,400-foot mountain peak with her pilot, for a spectacular tandem paraglide flight over the Mediterranean island Republic of Cyprus.
This is actually nothing new for McAlpine; in 2007, she set the record for the oldest person to paraglide at the young age of 100. This time around, she outdid herself to raise the bar against any potential contenders — not that should stop any centenarian from following in her footsteps. As they say, it’s never to late to start — McAlpine’s interest in extreme sports only started at the age of 80, when she did her first bungie jump.
