Of late, a video of an 80-year-old grandmother paragliding has stunned social media users. The woman in the video proved that age is just a number for her, and she is young at heart even at the age of 80.

Though the video was shot when the woman was alive, her granddaughter named Celina Moses has recently shared the video on her Instagram handle leaving the Internet emotional and inspired.

The video clip proved that her grandmother was daring; else, she could not have taken part in the aerial sport.

Celina stumbled upon the happy video on her phone’s gallery and shared the video of her grandmother who died seven years ago.

Sharing the video, Celina captioned it: “Age is Just a Number....and My Aai had to prove this .... My Grandmother did this when she was 80years old.... Found this video in my gallery after a long time and couldn't stop myself from sharing... 7 years now that she left us but what she left in us will always be remembered forever.”

In the video, Celina’s grandmother can be seen participating in the sports in a saree.
