It has been a bountiful year for 15-year-old indoor skydiver Kyra Poh. The Singaporean teenager recently took home the freestyle junior champion title at the 2nd FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships that took place from 18 to 23 October 2017 in Laval, Montreal, Canada.
Not bad considering that this was her first Freestyle Junior World Championship title. Poh triumphed, beating second-placed American Kayleigh Wittenburg by just 0.9 points. The former freestyle junior world champion titleholder was Maja Kucyzyska from Poland.
In February 2017, Poh claimed the “world’s fastest indoor skydiver” title after having won the solo freestyle competition at the Wind Games in Catalonia, Spain.
Poh’s indoor skydiving talent hasn’t gone unnoticed, especially in her home country. In April 2017, Swatch Singapore engaged Poh to perform indoor skydiving at iFLY Singapore as part of their launch of the Swatch Skin collection.
At the Swatch Skin launch, Poh performed three indoor skydiving displays and her second flight was one of our favourites.

At Singapore’s National Day Parade (NDP) in August 2017, Poh was one of four Singaporeans chosen to share their stories of triumph. She shared her two golds and a silver success story secured at the Wind Games organised by Windoor in February 2017.
