MARY REICHARD, HOST: Locals call it “Death Road.” It winds nearly 11,000 feet into the clouds…
It spirals over the jungles of Bolivia into the jagged peaks of the Andes Mountains.
Hundreds, if not thousands, have perished on that road.
But that didn’t scare Mirtha Muñoz even a little bit.
She competed in a 37-mile cycling competition on Death Road called Skyrace, and in doing it she broke a record.
“It’s vertical climb,” she says, “you go up and up and there’s no rest.”
As for the record she broke?
Well, at 70 years of age, she became the oldest person ever to compete.
Here’s hoping she breaks that record again and again!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
