Irene O’Shea, a 102-year-old great-grandmother became the oldest parachutist on the planet after taking part in a parachute jump At 102 years old, she jumped from 4200 meters and took a speed of 219 km/h in southern Australia.

It happened in Australia where Irene O’shea has become the longest person to parachute. “The sky was clear and it was a good day, although I was very cold,” O’Shea told the Australian press. The adventurous woman, felt that she felt “normal” after having rushed through the sky at 220 kilometers per hour.
Over the weekend, the Australian woman celebrated her 102nd birthday by going skydiving, a yearly tradition she has kept since turning 100. This year, however, was even more special as O’Shea became the oldest skydiver in the world, SA Skydiving confirmed to PEOPLE. Age and height are nothing but a number for Irene O’Shea!

Video footage of Sunday’s jump shows O’Shea, wearing an off-white cable-knit sweater and a hoodie, strapped to Smith in the specialized harnesses looking cool, calm, and collected. O’Shea participated in the jump to raise funds for a charity that investigates the cure of a disease of the motor neuron, which caused the death of his daughter.
Plunging over 14,000 feet, O’Shea made the dive on Sunday with Jed Smith, the same instructor she previously jumped with.

“Irene and Jed completed a smooth, beautiful freefall, falling at 220kph [136.7 mph] through wispy clouds, before a smooth parachute opening,” SA Skydiving rep Matt Teager told PEOPLE, noting that O’Shea “was an absolute joy to have on the dropzone.”

As the duo glided through the air, they took in the spectacular views of Langhorne Creek, Lake Alexandrina, the Coorong, and the Murray Mouth, Teager told PEOPLE.

Like in years past, the centenarian dedicated her fearless jump to her late daughter, who died from Motor Neuron Disease (MND). O’Shea has since partnered with the MND Association of South Australia to raise awareness and funds for the cause.
“I lost my daughter to that terrible disease 10 years ago and I miss her,” O’Shea told the Herald Sun.

Since her first jump, O’Shea has raised close to $12,000 for MND, the news outlet reported. This year was no different, with SA Skydiving stepping in to help O’Shea raise the funds with a GoFundMe campaign. In seven days, she has raised over $660 and hopes to reach a $10,000 goal.

She made her first parachute jump in 2016 on the day she turned 100. But it was not until this Sunday when she won her presence in the record books, since, according to the organizers, she became the oldest parachutist on the planet, with 102 years and 194 days.
