the latest craze among kids sweeping India — without the ability to see. And for his brave efforts he has been presented with a certificate by the World Records Academy and nominated for the Guinness book of world records.
The bendy third grade student from Belgaum — in Karnataka, southern India — started limbo-skating two-and-a-half years ago and trains for four hours every day. He said: “I passed blindfolded under three cars but in future I would try to pass under more.”
And describing how he was first inspired by a boy skater at a local roller skating rink in Belgaum, he added: “I got fascinated and asked my dad to get me one roller skate because that’s all we could afford.” After developing his talent at home he took lessons from skating coach, Suryakant Hindelgelkar.
The experienced trainer soon realised his student had a special talent. He said: “I train more than 200 students but seeing Rohan’s body flexibility and control, I knew he could do something unique. “We came up with limbo-skating blindfolded. He is an amazing student. I think he’s god’s gift.”
