The boys at his usually play with toys, watch T.V. or roam around with buddies. But, this boy of seven years old named Tiluck Keisam, spends his most time practicing limbo skating. He comes from Manipur, Northeast India. He is the youngest skater because of his arduous efforts.
He started the sport 2 years ago and got great achievements. He achieved the furthest distance limbo skating under bars at the Siri Fort Sports Complex in New Delhi.He skated a good 116 metres in 31.87 seconds on December 20 – breaking the previous world record of 50 metres.
Not only this, to keep things challenging, the bars he passed under were set at only 28cm high – 7cm lower than the required 35cm. Tiluck's record-breaking skate also featured his signature move – a U-turn half way through his run.
At his small age, Tiluck has an arduous daily training regime.Every day, he wakes up at 4am and has a quick breakfast. He then practices limbo skating for three hours in the morning and four in the evening.
The young boy is continuing to rack up a huge medal haul – and has now set his sights on an Olympic gold.Limbo skating, also known as roller limbo, sees the skater drive underneath an obstacle such as a pole without touching it.
In order to do so, they are required to lean forward and spread their legs apart – if possible, into a full split. For this reason, most skaters are very flexible.
