Indian boy visited PH to showcase breathtaking limbo-skating skills

by | Lifestyle

The Indian boy who holds the record for longest limbo skating in the world has visited the Philippines to showcase his exceptional skills.

Eight-year-old Gagan Satish had his guest appearance in ABS-CBN variety show “Little Big Shots” to show a limbo skate exhibition.

Limbo skating is a sport in which a person drives on roller skates underneath an obstacle like a horizontal pole without touching the ground.

Advanced athletes of this sport like Satish spread their legs apart or do a full split and lean their body forward with their face almost touching the ground.

Satish was also challenged by the show to limbo skate under 10 SUVs with the space of only one and a half span.

The breathtaking task was just a piece of cake for Satish as he easily passed these huge vehicles in seconds.

Satish hails from Bangalore, India and he started to learn limbo skating at the age of three.

In order to keep up with this sport, Satish follows a rigorous routine and attends every training class.

“He gets up at 5am. Then we take him for coaching classes. He practices there for a few hours. After that he goes to school,” Daily Mail has quoted Gagan’s father Rajanna.

“In the evenings also, after coming back from school, he starts skating out in the street,” he added.
