SINGAPORE - Indoor skydiver Kyra Poh of Singapore made waves again when she bagged two gold medals at the 2017 Windoor Wind Games  held in Spain.

At the two-day competition held from Feb 3-4, the 14-year-old teenager scored 361.217 points, ahead of Jakub Harrer of Czech Republic (349.033) and Maja Kuczynska of Poland (340.751), to win the solo freestyle event, which featured 10 competitors.

In the event, Kyra had to perform two compulsory and one free routines. Scores were given by a panel of judges, who would judge based on a set of criteria such as rhythm, expression, degree of difficulty of the moves, variety of orientations shown and moves performed without loss of balance. 

And in the solo speed competition, she clocked a total of 237.420sec over eight rounds to beat 10 other competitors. Cesar Rico of Spain (243.547) was second while Jamie Arnold of Britain (257.164) was third.

In each round of the speed competition, each participant had to perform a routine comprising a number of compulsory sequences and random sequences drawn.

Before Kyra's latest success, she also won a gold medal at the indoor skydiving World Cup last October.
