A 99 year old woman had a lifelong wish of being part of the knife throwing act at a circus. So when the circus came to town, Annie Duplock volunteered for it.
The owner of the circus heard that she wanted to do it. According to BBC, she really enjoyed her experience.
Apparently Annie had worked for the owner of the circus putting up posters 30 years ago when she was 70. She attended the circus the night before and was interested in having this done as a treat for her upcoming 100th birthday in August.
I thought this was going to be a trick but it looks pretty legit.
Notice that she doesn't seem to flinch. She also says she's ready for the next one!
