Eighty-eight female daredevils storm sky-high record
This was the task for 88 Russian women in Moscow Region's Kolomna airfield to descend hand-in-hand at a height of 20,000 feet to set a new mark.
Parachute gurus say that this attempt takes teamwork to another level, both for professional jumpers and enthusiasts – free-falling while holding hands leaves no margin for error, as success depends on each and every member of the team.
But it was not all plain sailing right from the start. The first two attempts at the record saw the girls fall short.
However, thousands of fans from all over the country kept their faith alive and were well-rewarded for their patience.
