A flexible five-year-old from Maharastra in Indian has whizzed her way into the record books after setting a new benchmark for the farthest distance limbo skating under cars.

Kindergarten student Shreeya Rakesh Deshpande skated under 27 cars, covering a whopping distance of 48.2 metres (158ft 2in) during a successful world record attempt last week in Kolhapur.

Nikhil Shukla , representative of Guinness World Records was present there and he confirmed that a new record had been set and presented Shreeya with her well-earned certificate for breaking the previous record of 38.68 metres which was set by Rohan Ajit Kokane (also an Indian who set this in last February during a TV show “Ab India Todega” n Mumbai)

An event celebrating Shreeya's achievement was organised later the same day in her hometown, with well-wishers once again treated to a demonstration of her amazing talent for limbo skating.

The event was organized at the Shahu Janmabhoomi in Kolhapur on 31 May 2012, saw Shreeya limbo skating under 26 vehicles and creating a new world record for covering 158.2 ft in mere 23 seconds. She also got the achievement for the farthest distance in Limbo Skating.

Proud that a student of his school has created a new world record, VIBGYOR High Principal Mr T. Balan said: “It’s always a pleasure to see our students excelling in the field of their interest and reach new heights of success. Shreeya has created history. This indeed is one of the biggest achievements for our school and has also made our country proud. VIBGYOR High has always encouraged its students to explore their interests and helped them in nurturing their talents.”

The record breaker’s father Mr. Rakesh Deshpande said: “We have always supported Shreeya in every decision she takes. The school has also shown great trust in her talents. She has achieved too much at a very young age. We only pray that she continues to be successful in everything she does and create more world records.”

The achievement marked a memorable accomplishment for the city of Kolhapur as its name was added in the annals of the Guinness World Records. The event was witnessed by noted personalities of Kolhapur who were present to encourage the young achiever.
