He broke the previous record of 50 metres when he covered a distance of 116 metres in 31.86 seconds. What made this even more incredible was the fact that the cans were set at a height of 28 cm, lower than the regulation 35 cm.

Tiluck, who is a student of Class 2, has so far racked up a total of 42 medals from different competitions.

On breaking the Guinness record, Tilack said, “This is my dream and it has come true so I feel very happy.”

His parents are Keisam Ricky and Pravabati Takhellambam. He trains under Coach Rohtash Dinodia.
