Parachuting — pearls of Russia

These graceful and flexible swallows of the heavens — also known as female parachutists — cannot imagine their lives without the skies. The “Pearls of Russia” are the country’s best athletes and they spend months and months training in order to achieve new world records in 102 way (skydiving). These athletes make up part of a big, friendly sky family whose members are all working toward a common goal — realising the dream of their fearless captain, Irina Sinitsinaya, who was tragically killed while trying to set a record in California. Full of energy, these tireless women soar high in the sky like bright stars in order to reach their dreams.
