A young Indian boy has set a new world record in limbo skating. 7-year-old Tiluck Keisam broke the Guinness World Record for “Farthest Distance Limbo Skating Under Bars” on December 20 at Delhi’s Siri Fort Stadium.
Tiluck achieved this incredible feat even though he only started skating two years ago.
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.
