8-year-old, Krish Shanghvi becomes the youngest Skydiver in the world

The lure and attraction of adventure sports is on the rise and when a child achieves a feat in such sports it is cause for bigger celebration and pride for Indians. A few days ago, an 8-year-old boy from Mumbai became the world’s youngest skydiver when he performed a skydiving feat and jumped off a plane flying above 10,000 feet in Mozzel Bay in South Africa. He was awarded the certificate certifying “The Worlds Youngest Skydiver” by Unique World Records. The skydiving feat involved a thrilling 45 second free fall at 200 kmph before the parachute unfurled. Krish achieved the dive in tandem with a trainer Henk Van Wky. Previously, the record of being the youngest skydiver in the World was held by a Romanian girl named Valentina Mihanciu aged 9 years and the record of being the youngest skydiver in India was held by Kolkata’s Anaina Malik who had achieved the feat at the age of 13, jumping in Mauritius. Krish’s elder brother Parth Shanghvi also holds the record of becoming the youngest scuba diver in the world in February 2010 in Goa. Seen in the photo is Krish Sanghvi skydiving with his trainer Henk Van Kya.
