This Young Boy Is Youngest Skater In The World

*** EXCLUSIVE - VIDEO AVAILABLE *** NEW DELHI, INDIA - DECEMBER 25: Tiluck Keisam poses for a picture on December 25, 2015 in New Delhi, India. A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD limbo skater has set a new world record - despite the fact he only started skating two years ago. Tiluck Keisam, from Manipur in Northeast India, set a new world record for the furthest distance limbo skating under bars at the Siri Fort Sports Complex in New Delhi, India. The hyper-flexible youngster skated 116 metres in 31.87 seconds on December 20, 2015 - smashing the previous record of 50 metres. And to keep things challenging, the bars Tiluck passed under were set at only 28cm high, 7cm less than the required 35cm. Tiluck's record-breaking skate also featured his signature move - a U-turn half way through his run. Despite his age, Tiluck has a gruelling daily training regime - he wakes at 4am and after a quick breakfast practices for three hours in the morning and four in the evening. The youngster is continuing to rack up a huge medal haul and has now set his sights on an Olympic gold. PHOTOGRAPH BY Haziq Qadri / Barcroft India UK Office, London.
