Betty Goedhart (born in 1932) is the oldest female performing flying trapeze artist. She grew up in Sugar Creek, Missouri. During her childhood, Betty was inspired when her parents took her to the circus in Kansas City, but she did not start until the age of 78. Her friend gave her a gift certificate for her 78th birthday to try trapeze for the first time. She has held the title as the oldest performing female trapeze artist since July 1, 2017 when she was 84 years old. She currently resides in San Diego, CA.
