Russian Skydivers Set World Record


Eighty-eight Russian female skydivers of the Zhemchuzhina Rossii team have set a world record for the number of people linked together in a single arrangement, the Sports Ministry said Monday.

The Zhemchuzhina Rossii team made a flower outside the town of Kolomna near Moscow.

“With this result they beat last year’s record of the German parachutists who had managed to form a figure of 84 people,” the ministry said in a statement sent to R-Sport.

It took the Russian athletes about a week to prepare for the performance and four attempts to perform the feat successfully, the statement mentioned.

The team is planning to create a break the record with a figure of 100 people next summer.
