Woman, 101, Becomes Oldest Paraglider
OGDEN, Utah (UPI) — Guinness World Records announced a 101-year-old Utah woman has been named the Oldest Female to Paraglide Tandem.
The record-keeping organization said Mary Allen Hardison of Ogden, went tandem paragliding with a Cloud 9 Paragliding Company instructor as part of her 101st birthday celebration on Sept. 1.
Hardison, a great-great grandmother, said she was inspired by her son, Allen, 75, who had recently taken up paragliding as a hobby.
“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. Friends don’t like a grumpy person,” Hardison said.
