Read the article about an old lady who did something special on her 101st birthday.

Are the sentences below ‘Right’ or ‘Wrong’? If there is not enough information to answer ‘Right’ or ‘Wrong’, choose ‘Doesn’t say’.


For her 101st birthday, Mary Hardison, from Utah, wanted to do something a bit different. So, instead of having a party and inviting her friends and family to her home, she decided to go paragliding. She is now in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to do this. She got the idea from her 75-year-old son, who started doing the sport a few years ago. After the jump, she spoke to journalists and told them: “I don’t want my son to do something that I can’t.”

Mary did her flight with an instructor called Kevin Hintze. He said she was not afraid, even when they were turning over in the air. While she was coming down, Mary said she looked around, at the buildings and at the mountains. On the ground below, she could see her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even a few great-great-grandchildren. They cheered and held up signs that said HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!

This isn’t the first time Mary has done something interesting. On her 90th birthday, she went to Disneyland. A few of the rides were shut for repairs, but she went on all the ones that were open. For her next adventure, she’s planning to go down the Alpine Slide at Utah’s Park City Mountain Resort. It is 1000 metres from the top to the bottom, and very fast, but Marry isn’t afraid at all. In fact, she can’t wait.
