83 year old makes 100th leap

An 83-year-old skydiver from New York has been jumping out of airplanes since 1998. In less than 10 years he has reached the 100-jump mark.

Leo Dean of Albany now has his sights set on 200 jumps.

Dean took up skydiving after he was widowed in 1998. He tells the Albany Times Union he wondered if he had “the nerve to step out the door” and was pleased to find out he did.

  1. I think that if he is in the shape to jump, then he should keep doing it, as he may stay in great shape and live well past 100.
