Kyle was also crowned the “World’s Fastest Flyer”, winning the solo speed category – where participants perform both compulsory and randomly drawn sequences as fast as they can. However, in the air the Singaporean teenager makes it all look effortless – a combination of dancing and floating – but in reality it is hard work.
When interviewed by BBC, Kyle said, “You use all your muscles for this sport. Even those muscles you never knew existed, they will start to ache. Even your wrists will hurt.”
Considering her small size, Kyle believes being smaller and lighter than her competitors did not give her an advantage. In fact, she thinks it made things more difficult.
“A lot of people think that if you’re lighter, you’re faster. I don’t think so. Because when you’re small, you have less body surface area, so you can push off less wind. If you’re taller, you can push off more and have more force,” she says.
Even though Indoor skydiving is a very new sport, but Kyra sees it as her lifelong passion and hopes to be a professional athlete.
“When I was smaller I used to draw pictures of myself flying over Singapore. I even wanted to be an astronaut, to float in zero gravity.
“Humans are not meant to fly, but that has always been my dream. Now I can fly in a tunnel, so I’m glad to find this sport.”
