Eight-year-old from India skates into the record books

Doing the splits would be challenging enough for most people, so imagine trying to skate under 30 cm high bars in that position!
 
Well, it's a breeze for limbo skating sensation Tiluck Keisam. He has just broken his own record for the Farthest distance limbo skating under bars by propelling himself a jaw-dropping 145 metres (475 ft 7 in).
 
 
Tiluck first started practicing roller limbo back in 2013 and went on to set his first record in the sport in December 2015 with a distance of 116 metres (380 ft 5 in).
 
The eight-year-old from India decided to take on the Guinness World Records challenge to inspire other young kids.

Limbo skating is a very popular sport with youngsters in India. In August 2016 we confirmed a new record for six-year-old Om Swaroop Gowda, who achieved the Farthest distance limbo-skating under cars (65.283 metres).
