Wind Games 2017: Let’s go to the wind tunnel!
This February, the 4th annual Wind Games took place in Spain. So let’s go to the wind tunnel again! The competition introduced a new speed-only discipline called speed races, so the event got bigger and better with the addition of this discipline: Solo and 4-ways competed to see who was the fastest at dynamic speed rounds.
The Wind Games are an annual tournament for indoor skydiving, sponsored by Windoor, a manufacturer of vertical wind tunnels, and supported by Red Bull. The event first took place in 2014 in Empuriabrava, Spain. The athletes glide through the wind tunnel synchronously to the music, aesthetically and breathtaking. Weightless as well as powerful.
Maja Kuczynska, a 16 years old talented indoor skydiving athlete from Poland, has amazed everyone this year (watch the video below!)
And we have to mention: Kyra Poh, the 14 year old girl has been training since she was nine years old and won two gold medals: in the categories solo freestyle and solo speed, where she won the title of World’s Fastest Flyer. Congratulations!

Acrobatics in the wind tunnel, this means two challenges at once. This sport is so breathtaking!
