The world’s fastest flyer

The world's fastest flyer

Fourteen-year-old indoor skydiver Kyra Poh has been crowned the “world’s fastest flyer” in one of the sport’s biggest competitions, the Wind Games.
Riding winds as fast as 230km/h (143mph), Kyra flips and whirls around the arena, a small blur of white spandex in a giant vertical wind tunnel.
In the air the Singaporean teenager makes it all look effortless – a combination of dancing and floating – but in reality it is hard work.Kyra won the gold medal in the junior freestyle category at the FAI World Cup of Indoor Skydiving, held in October last year in Poland.
