Kyra Poh is just like any other chatty, energetic 12-year-old, the only difference is she is a professional indoor skydiver.

She picked up indoor skydiving after iFly, an indoor wind tunnel that simulate skydiving, opened in 2011 at Sentosa. 

Since then she has gone on to take part in competitions alongside skydivers twice her age.

One of them is Mr Alson Ooi, 35, who holds the Guinness World Record for the Longest Indoor Freefall, lasting four hours, two minutes and five seconds.
