Limbo Skating Blindfolded Under Cars World Record

Limbo Skating Blindfolded Under Cars World Record

Rohan Ajit Kokane, who can flatten his body until none of it is higher than eight inches off the ground, skimmed his way under three parked cars without touching any.

He was presented with a badge and certificate from the World Records Academy, and has been nominated for the Guinness Book of World Records.

Rohan, from Belgaum, Karnataka, in the south of the country, has been limbo-skating for two and a half years, and practices four hours every day to make sure he stays the best.

He started skating on a single skate after getting obsessed with the hobby. He said: “A boy performed at a local roller skating rink at Belgaum. I got fascinated and asked my dad to get me one roller skate because that's all we could afford.”
A local skate trainer has spotted Rohan’s abilities and started coaching him. Suryakant Hindelgelkar said: “I train more than 200 students but seeing Rohan's body flexibility and control, I knew he could do something unique.
“We came up with limbo-skating blindfolded.
“He is an amazing student. I think he's God's gift.”
Rohan’s father Ajit Kokane agrees. He hopes that Rohan’s unusual hobby can become an Olympic sport. He said: “I want him to compete in the Olympics and make his country proud.”

Limbo-skating is a recent craze in India. The eye-watering pastime has existed as an organised sport for around three years.

The world record for skating under parked cars without a blindfold is held by Aniket Chindak, who in 2008, at the age of six, managed to skate underneath 81 cars in 53 seconds.
