Skydiving Granny Proves You're Never Too Old PDF Print E-mail

A 77-year-old Spanish granny is taking her love of the skies to new heights by becoming the world's oldest professional freestyle parachute jumper.


Montse has already jumped 903 times - the first time when she was 30-years-old.


Despite carrying prosthesis in her hip, the Catalan granny has not given up.


"I started with skiing, because I am from mother hearth, land, air and water. Then I continued with swimming and trampoline jumping, sailing then Windsurfing came out... and so I tried them too," she said.


"Up to now I have jumped 903 times from a parachute, it's not bad is it?"


Montse has practised her passion all over the world - she did her first world championship in Empuria Brava in 1993, then in Arizona the following year.


"Every time I go to a championship they all say to me the same, 'We know you don't do training and we know your age but seeing you there for us is a privilege.'"
