Watch: 81-Year-Old Daredevil Performs Incredible Stunt 85 Feet In The Air
Carla Wellenda started performing for circus crowds at the age of three and has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
The 81-year-old daredevil put her skills on display in front of Steve Harvey and a crowd of onlookers for the premiere of Little Big Shots: Forever Young—a show that displays the incredible talents of older adults.
Her stunt? An 85-foot climb to the top of a sway poll. Halfway through her climb—with a concerned Steve Harvey looking on—she paused for a quick break. “At 81 you get out of breath,” she explains.
Once at the top, she demonstrated why they call it a “sway poll” and puts any concerns about her age and ability to rest.
