Aida Mendes made her third skydive Saturday near the junction of the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, ITAR-Tass reported Sunday.

This was her second jump since she turned 100 years old, though this time she filed paperwork to officially count the jump as record-breaking. The agency with which she filed paperwork was not reported.

She jumped from 9,842 feet in tandem with an instructor and was accompanied by a cameraman. The jump lasted six minutes, ITAR-Tass said.

“In life you have to be brave, courage is always useful,” Mendes said after she landed, adding she’s “not going to give up the hobby while the health is good.”

Prior to the jump, she underwent a complete physical, including making sure her blood pressure was an acceptable level, the newspaper said.
