Indoor skydiving: Kyra Poh wins two golds at Wind Games in Spain
SINGAPORE - Singapore indoor skydiver Kyra Poh bagged another two gold medals at the 2018 Windoor Wind Games on Sunday (Feb 4) in Girona, Spain, matching her haul from last year's Games.
The 15-year-old began the two-day competition by retaining the solo freestyle title she won last year, scoring. 547.80 points over four rounds to beat out 12 other competitors.
Kyra and compatriot Choo Yi Xuan then teamed up with Polish pair Josh Ruiz-Velasco and Andrzej Soltyk to bag the four-way speed gold in a cumulative time of 285.625 seconds, a mixed gender category requiring participants to complete diving sequences in the fastest time possible.
The freestyle category sees participants perform their own routines, and are judged by their style, creativity, originality and difficulty of their stunts.
"There was a lot more pressure on me this year coming back as defending champion, and the standard of this year's competition was very high. So I'm really proud that I managed to defend my gold," said Kyra.
"Together with Andrzej and Josh, the fastest male indoor skydiving pairing in the world, we also knew it would be a formidable team. We were really excited when we formed Team Nemesis with them during the competition at Lyon (last month), where we won gold on our debut."Kyra's other gold medal defence did not fare as well, as she finished fifth in the solo speed category.
Making her individual debut, Yi Xuan, 16, finished fourth in the solo freestyle and tenth in the solo speed.
Aside from winning two golds at last year's Wind Games, Kyra was also crowned the top freestyle junior title at the biennial World Indoor Skydiving Championships last October.
