Parachuting into the record books

28 Apr 2015

Parachuting into the record books Image

By Louis Blake

Docklands resident and medical scientist Sandy Glenday is set to throw herself into a record-breaking attempt next month.

Sandy, 48, along with 120 other Australians will be traveling to California this month to help break the Australian large formation skydiving record, which currently stands at 112 people.

Sandy will plummet hundreds of metres while attempting to cling on to other Aussie daredevils and hold a “flat fly” formation.

After being given her first jump as a present 13 years ago, Sandy was immediately hooked and has completed 864 jumps since.

Sandy has also competed in formation skydiving in Victoria and holds two silvers and a gold medal.  Sandy says she loves the feeling of freedom and the fact that she has no constraints while flying through the air.

There are plenty of other ways to describe the feeling of throwing oneself out of a perfectly good plane, Sandy describes flying over a drop zone as “an incredibly happy place to be”.

Her team has been training for the record attempt for 12 months and will be undergoing more intensive training in the US before their attempt.

We would like to wish our fellow Docklander all the best in her record-breaking attempt.

Break a leg! Or, you know, preferably don’t.
