World Record of Limbo Skating Under Car

Roller-skating under cars might seem impossible, but it is the latest craze among kids in India and requires the flexibility, strength and balance of a gymnast.

Six-year-old Aniket Chindak holds the unofficial world record for 'limbo-skating' and speeds along no more than eight-inches above the ground.

Unfolding his body from his eye-watering position, the wonder-kid explained proudly how he is training to break his own world record of skating under 57 cars in 45 seconds.

Aniket Chindak says he has managed to travel under 57 cars in one go

"I first saw a girl skate under a car on TV two years ago and decided to learn how to do it myself," he said.

"It took three months before I could get my body in the right position. Since then I have skated under lots of cars and have never hurt myself."

Aniket, who trains four-hours per day, started skating when he was 18-months-old. After smashing the world record of 43 cars in March he started training to skate under 100 cars.

"The hardest thing is to go fast enough before I bend down, because that's how you can skate under so many cars at once," he said.

Aniket measures the gap he must travel through

According to his father, Ramesh, the skating marvel covers 60-miles twice a week in practice and sulks when he is told to finish.

"Aniket had a passion for skating right from the day he learnt it," he said.

"He has been skating long distances for the last three years but since he started limbo-skating his passion has increased.

"Aniket was always very flexible but for limbo-skating you need strength as well. It took him a while to condition his body to hold the correct position - now his battle is to get the speed and control necessary for 100 cars.

"He wants to set a world record no one can beat for a long time."
