A video of a 6-year old limbo skater who confidently splits his way under 39 cars in just 30 seconds has gone viral.
With arms spread and legs wide, Gagan Satish slowly leans forward until he is completely flat on the ground. Then with speed on momentum and his face 5-inches from getting scraped on the ground, he confidently rolls his way under a row of 39 cars. According to Telegraph, the little boy covered a distance of nearly 70 meters. While Mirror UK reported his feat only took a matter of 29.8 seconds.
The little boy's incredible feat has astounded onlookers and even claimed he could get a shot at the Guinness Book of Records. His amazing skills at roller skating have given him a shot at fame even among the kids in his hometown in Bangalore, India. Kids now want to learn how to skate since his video has gone viral.
Satish started learning how to skate when he was three, when he received his first pair of roller-skates. Since then he got hooked. As what he said, "I love skating. " His interest at the sport didn't earn him a place in his local club. But his determination earned him a celebrity status in his hometown. Now the little boy is looking for more skating challenges as he claimed he wants to be in the Olympics. Skating under 39 cars is apparently an easy enough feat for Satish who said he wants to skate under 100 cars next time.
Gagan Satish's parents first realized their son's skill for limbo skating when they noticed his body's flexibility during exercise. So they decided to have him coached for proper limbo skating.
Yatish Gowda, Satish's coach said the local club initially declined training him because he was still too young. He was still such a small kid to learn how to limbo skate. But his determination and skills made Gowda train the small boy for three months until on Jan. 31, Satish proved to everyone that age doesn't matter when he came out unscathed under the 39 cars.
"Everybody loves me. After seeing me my friends started limbo skating," Satish said. He claimed when he was five years old he also broke the world record in limbo skating.
