THE WOODLANDS, Texas - The nation's top indoor skydivers were at iFLY Houston on Saturday competing for the chance to take part in the sport's world cup next month. 

More than 100 skydivers competed in 11 different events, each involved flying and floating through the air. 

"It's exhilarating, amazing and you want to do it over and over again," said Stacy Curry of Spring. "It's addicting." 

Some of the skydivers competed on teams, others entered events on their own.

"It's very hard," said Curry. "It's a challenge to learn how to fly, to control your arms and legs." 

The competitors included a young pair of siblings from Chicago that are said to be the world's youngest professional indoor skydiving team.

Kayleigh Wittenburg, 12 and Noah Wittenburg, 10, practice three times a week after school. They have been to body flight events all over the world. 

"It feels amazing," said Kayleigh. "I like the feeling of the wind." 

The pair were among the winners who now have the chance to attend the World Cup of Indoor Skydiving next month in Warsaw, Poland.
