WTF Was That?!: Kid Rollerskate Limbos Under 39 Cars

limbo-record-roller-skater.jpg

This is a video of 6-year old Gagan Satish from Bagalore, India, rollerskating under 39 consecutive cars. That is a new record (previously: a video of the old champion from 2008). The clearance under the cars is only 20cm (7.9-inches). For reference, I always knock the pole down during rollerskate limbo on the first pass. Plus refuse to leave the rink during couple's skate even though I don't have a partner.

Keep going for the video, but prepare to scratch your eyeballs in disbelief.

Thanks to chichi, who agrees the best thing about the skating rink is the snack bar.

    Sweet gorilla of Manilla!

    If I was that kid at 2:34, I'd have chopped limbo-skaters head off at the moment he popped out from under the cars, just for kicks.
    Then I would put my pyramid head on.

    I'd also like to jump on a limbo-skater & see his resulting face.

    When there's 1.27 billion people in your area you need a skill.

    Two things.
    1. I thought limbo had to bend backwards. That is cheating.
    2. There is a "limbo skating world"? There is limbo skating coaches? Wow.

  • Jenness

    I too thought "Reallllyyy?" at the notion of a limbo-skating world - which seems rather grandiose considered there are only about 3 known competitors and they are all in grade school. I bet the reporter was one of their dads.

  • zin

    I now have a new fetish.

  • Brad Walton

    Number 2 is the reason why number 1 doesn't apply. I don't know how big the "limbo skating world" is, but limbo has always been a part of roller skating and bending backwards can only get you so far on skates.

  • actually those were three things- are you with the spanish inquisition?

  • HackTheGibson

    I figured a coach was part of the limbo skating world. Just an extension of how I surprised.

    ... NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    I can skate like that. Or at least that's the position I end up in whenever I attempt to skate.

  • Michael Knight

    is that good for your ankles???

  • captain kringle
