In this video, we meet Sydney Kennett, already among the world’s best indoor skydivers, even though she’s still a teen. The 14-year-old champion moves with the grace of a ballerina inside vertical wind tunnels that propel air in excess of 160 kilometres per hour.
Naturally, such unusual talent has not gone unnoticed. Sydney holds numerous top prizes at competitions around the world, and she’s even a Guinness World Record holder.
Recreational wind tunnels enable human beings to experience the sensation of flight without planes or parachutes, through the force of wind being generated vertically. Air moves upwards at approximately 195 km per hour, so that a human body ‘floats’ in midair, replicating the physics of ‘body flight’ that is experienced during freefall.
