It was a hat trick of gold medals for Choo Yi Xuan after the Secondary 4 student-athlete clinched gold in all three events she competed in at the Australian Indoor Skydiving Championships on 18 and 19 August.

Yi Xuan showed her versatility when she and Isabelle Koh won the 2-Way Dynamic – Speed Intermediate event before she teamed up with Kyra Poh to take gold in the 2-Way Dynamic – Speed Open category.

Yi Xuan and Kyra then joined forces with Australians Dave Hyndman and Tayne Farrant to finish tops in the 4-Way Dynamic – Speed Open event and ensure she left Sydney, Australia with a perfect three out of three record.

Even more impressive was that this was the first time the 16-year-old had competed in three different categories in the same competition.

However, with the 2017 FAI Indoor Skydiving Championship coming up in October, Yi Xuan knows there is plenty for her to do if she wants to better her fourth place finish from 2016.

“This competition gives us a rough gauge on where we stand internationally, so we must look ahead and improve on our faults to perform better in our upcoming competitions,” Yi Xuan said.
