The reason Harwood looks like a pro -- she has sky dived before. She went in 2007 at the age of 92, but this jump was not typical for her.

"It's definitely a very special, exhiliarting experience," she said.  "Even this jump seemed to be a different from the previous ones, and it's just wonderful."

Once she was safely on the ground, she drank her champagne. Cheers to being 100 and to 100 more skydiving experiences for Harwood!


For now though, she wants to mix things up a bit by going underwater in a shark cage for her next big adventure.
