How a drone helped Healy shatter world record


//

Fresh off winning the Belinda Clark Award, Australian wicket keeper Alyssa Healy has continued her golden year by putting her name into the Guinness World Record books.

Healy has shattered the existing record for the highest catch of a cricket ball (62m), catching a ball dropped from a drone at a height of 82.5m above the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

With one record in the books, Healy and the Southern Stars will look to break another at next year's ICC Women's T20 World Cup when they look to reach the final at the MCG and break the record for attendance at a women's sporting fixture.
