Gagan Satish, from Bangalore, India, attempts to break a world record as he tries to skate under 39 cars with a distance of 230 feet.

At six years old, he attempts to beat the Guinness World Record of fellow Indian Shreeya Rakesh Deshpande who limbo-skated to a distance record 27 cars or 158 feet in 23 seconds.

Gagan was once rejected for being too young by a local skating club but he was determined in his chosen sport and spent hours everyday to practice.
“We could see that his body was very flexible”, his mother Hema said. “After that we decided to send him for proper coaching”.

His father, Rajanna, feels blessed for having a gifted son. “We are really lucky to have a son like Gagan. He has been blessed by God”, he said. “We thank God for giving him such grace and talent in skating”.

Gagan adds, “I love skating. I have been doing it since I was three years old. My next goal is to skate underneath 100 cars. I also want to go to the Olympics”.

Watch this young man attempt to break the world record in this unique sport.
