Most recently, indoor skydiver Kyra Poh (who is just 14) has not only been flying the flag high, she herself is literally flying high, soaring and swooping up two gold medals and a silver at the 2017 Wind Games in Spain. (http://bbc.in/2jXqO6Q) I watched the clip of her winning routine with amazement. Click on the video below to see her in action.
On the culinary scene, chef Mathew Tham, was champion of the international IIHM Young Chef Olympiad 2017 held in India. (http://str.sg/4sqq)
It is exciting to see Singaporeans trying their hand at – and excelling in – areas others might consider unconventional. Congratulations to Kyra, Mathew, Eu-Wen and Kirsten for doing us proud! Keep chasing your rainbows! – LHL
AT THE WIND GAMES 2017 held at Windoor, Kyra Poh won gold medals in the solo speed category, where a routine must be completed in the fastest time possible, and the freestyle category, where competitors are graded on their choreography and the difficulty of their moves. She was crowned the “world’s fastest flyer”.
