"So much in life is pleasant"! Meet Georgina Harwood, the SA woman who went skydiving at 100“So much in life is pleasant; the view, the people…” says Georgina Mary Harwood, the 102-year old South African woman who jumped off a plane on her 100th birthday, descending at over 200 kilometres per hour.

The first time she went skydiving was at 92, and then at 97. Later on, she plunged into the icy waters of the Atlantic Sea to dive among sharks.

According to Beautiful News SA, the senior citizen, who co-founded the University of Cape Town’s Mountain Club, now the UCT Mountain and Ski Club, jumped for the third time to support a crowdfunding campaign for the supply of lifejackets for the safety of volunteers at the National Sea Rescue Institute.

The first line says it all; Georgina has a positive outlook on life and is not afraid to try something new.
