Not strictly a sport, but newsworthy. My my local paper shows pics of an 88-year-old woman from the Dordogne, who still lives in the house where she was born, grinning from ear to ear as she did her first skydive strapped to her instructor.

Two pics. One in the free fall phase, the other after landing. She was really having a ball.
