An 88-member women's skydiving team in Russia broke a world record this week when they completed a red, white and blue flower-formation dive, which, judging by how pretty it looks, was really, really, hard. It was so hard, in fact, that it took the Pearls of Russia three attempts because everyone in the group has to have a near-perfect jump for the formation to work. The previous record was held by a group of 84 German women who now have to deal with only being pretty hardcore, not the most hardcore.
