The Daily Telegraph reports
Australian stuntwoman Ky Furneaux has been honoured with the stunt industry's equivalent of an Oscar.
Furneaux, 38, has won Best Stunt Done By a Female category for her work in Thor at the 2012 Taurus World Stunt Awards in the US.
In the 2011 film Thor, starring another Australian Chris Hemsworth, Furneaux doubled for actress Jaimie Alexander who played warrior goddess Sif.
Her winning scene was when her character jumped from a building to spear The Destroyer through the chest - and the stunt was so complex Furneaux rehearsed it for five days before filming.
"It was one of those days where you realised you might not come home at the end of it,'' she told Seven Network.
With this in mind, and holding the industry's highest accolade, Furneaux says she's now retiring from the stunt game because of the increasingly dangerous work demanded of its women.
