You don’t need to be a doctor or lawyer to be a high flyer

She is only 14-years-old and yet Singaporean Kyra Poh is already a high flyer. Literally and metaphorically.

On 3 and 4 February at the 2017 Windoor Wind Games in Girona, Spain, Kyra picked up two golds and a silver at the competition.

The annual meet had almost 200 fliers from over 18 countries across eight categories.

Watch Kyra’s artistic round performance here:

Kyra picked up her gold medals in the solo freestyle category and the solo speed.

In the solo freestyle event, Kyra scored 361.217 points after three rounds, finishing ahead of Czech Jakub Harrer (349.033) and Maja Kuczynska of Poland (340.751).

In the solo speed event, Kyra clocked a total of 237.620sec over eight rounds to beat 10 other competitors.

This is not the first time that Kyra has made the headlines for her high-flying antics.

She also won a gold medal at the Indoor Skydiving World Cup in October 2016.

So, who says you need to be a doctor, or a lawyer to be a high flyer?
