Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Georgina Harwood of South Africa celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday with a skydive in Cape Town.

“It was wonderful, it was exhilarating,” the great-grandmother told The Associated Press after successfully landing the tandem jump.

Harwood’s first jump was back in 2007 at 92-years-old.

As if the skydive wasn’t enough, the thrill-seeking centenarian will cage dive amongst sharks on Monday!
