These examples prove that no matter what age, the limits are up to you. In the case of Yukiko Urata, it all started with a game between her daughter Dina, her granddaughter Karina and a friend named Ana Cláudia. They made the joke invitation and the 102 year old lady accepted.

The time of the parachute jump of lady Yukiko

Troubled by a leg problem, where Yukiko had surgery and put prostheses in 2017, she would just watch her daughter and granddaughter jump. Fortunately, the instructors said that she would not need to support her with her feather when it came down, so the 102 year old lady accepted the invitation where the 3 generations Grandmother, daughter and granddaughter jumped together.

The funny thing is that the 4 women accepted the invitation to skydive, but the men of the family were afraid and did not face this adventure.
