88 Russian ladies set new world record in skydiving.

Washington, July 26 ( ANI ): A team of 88 daring ladies in Russia have overcome months of grueling training to prove that the sky is not the limit, and set a new world record in formation skydiving.

According to Russia Today, the 88-member 'Pearls of Russia' women's skydiving team successfully pulled off a white, blue and red flower formation jump in the skies over Kolomna near Moscow, setting a world record for women's parachuting, CBS News reported.

Their first two attempts were not successful, but the third time was a charm.

The previous world record was set by a German female team, which consisted of 84 members. ( ANI )
