Record breaking limbo skater: 6-year-old skates under 39 cars
Gagan Satish is a six-year-old boy who is a roller skater from Bangalore, India. He flattened himself and passed underneath 39 cars, squeezing in a space of seven inches above the ground on his roller skates. Gagan covered the distance in 29.8 seconds and emerged unscathed from the 20 centimetres of space underneath the SUVs. This feat has landed Gagan to stake claim for an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records. The wonder kid, who goes to a primary school, began skating at the age of three, harnessing his extreme flexibility to master and specialise in limbo- skating. Gagan’s father, Rajanna Satish, who runs an washing machine service centre, too was ecstatic over his son’s feat.
