Russian CS:GO streamer Olga has won over the gaming community by going skydiving for the first time ever at the age of 73.
Olga started streaming on Twitch in January 2021 and just within nine months she has managed to gather a following of more than 40,000.
Olga primarily streams CS:GO but also plays other games like Minecraft, Tomb Raider, Bioshock, Metro, and other shooter based titles.

A 73-year-old CS:GO (Counter Strike: Global Offensive) streamer from Russia called Olga ticked a huge challenge off her bucket list after she went skydiving. The clip has since gone viral within the gaming community where Olga can be seen streaming her tandem skydive with an instructor. She streamed the skydive on Twitch for her audience.

The retired Russian streamer currently has more than 40,000 followers on her Twitch channel 'i_olga', where she mostly streams CS:GO among other games like Minecraft, Metro, Tomb Raider, Bioshock, and other shooter based titles.

Other popular Russian streamers like Vadim "Evelone" Kozakov and Vyacheslav "buster" Leont'ev have previously extended support to Olga, which can be observed via her top donators list where they currently stand at the very top.

The gaming community was in awe, hyping up the old streamer for achieving her dream of skydiving despite being 73 years old. Olga even livestreamed while prepping for her dive, as her viewers showed support and gave her the confidence to go through with her plans.

Olga could not show her jump live, but made sure to record every bit of it which she later streamed on Twitch. She was thankful to the community and explains her intention behind streaming by saying that,

Every morning I get up with only one thought, that I want to play and spend as much time as possible with you my good ones (viewers). I really like to play, I'm happy that at my age I can learn something new. Sometimes if I keep quiet and concentrate on the game, I might not be able to answer, so forgive me for that.

Olga started streaming in January earlier this year after she saw other streamers on YouTube playing games. Her grandson helped her out by setting everything up for her, but she has since learned how to turn on the stream and broadcast live on her own.

In just nine months, Olga has managed to garner a following of over 40,000 on Twitch where she primarily plays CS:GO among other shooting games.
