A 103-year-old man from Georgetown, Texas in the USA has now become the oldest man to perform a tandem parachute jump.

There are many videos on the Internet that show senior citizens achieving their goals and working hard to make their dreams come true. Now there is another video that has gone viral and reaffirmed this statement. 

A 103-year-old man named Alfred Blaschke, also known as Al, from Georgetown, Texas in the USA did a tandem parachute jump. He sky-dived while being attached to an instructor. Al jumped from a plane at a height of 14,000 feet. By performing this skydive, the man has now achieved the Guinness World Record of being the oldest man to perform such a tandem parachute jump. 


Al was born on 4th January 1917. This was not the first time Al did the skydive. He first skydived in the year 2017 on the occasion of his 100th birthday and made a promise to himself that he will do it again when his grandsons graduate from college. Al’s friends, family, and some state officials gathered to see him achieve the record. Al said that it was perfect. He continued, “Skydiving is a very safe sport these days. Statistically, it’s more dangerous to get snacks out of a vending machine.” Al has again proven that you do not need to be young to achieve your goals and dream. You just need determination and a strong will. That way you can do anything no matter your age.
