104 Year-old Reclaims Title of World’s Oldest Paraglider from American Rival

Monday November 24, 2014    9:14 AM

Seeking to reclaim her world record for oldest paraglider from a newcomer to the sport, a 101-year-old Utah woman who sailed to the Guiness World Book last month, 104-year-old Peggy McAlpine successfully jumped off a 2,400ft cliff two weeks ago.

The British centenarian refused to allow her legacy to be unceremoniously usurped, and so arranged for a repeat of her previous tandem paragliding adventure.

McAlpine said she would do it again should anyone capture her record again.
