- Five-year-old Priyadarshini Hiremath won the Limca book of records.
- She's been training for the past two years.
It was just another day for most residents of Kaiga township in the Karwar taluk of Karntaka. But for five-year-old Priyadarshini Hiremath, it was her D-Day. The school student was about to take part in a competition that would test her training, her skills and everything she had worked hard at.
On Wednesday, she sealed her fate in a matter of twenty seconds. This skater made her way into the Limca book of records with her limbo skating technique. Those who were present watched her with awe as she sped under 48 bars each only 6.5 inches tall. This was impressive even for the judges who witnessed a new record in the sphere of limbo skating.
This UKG student from AECS School in Kaiga now holds the proud title of Record Holder Republic (RHR) in the Limca book of records and in the Asia book of records.
This young gun’s coach, Dilip Hanbar of Kaiga Roller Skating Club, said that she’d been practising very hard for this for the past six months. He added that her love for skating began two years ago and she’ never looked back since then, reported The New Indian Express.
It’s not just the coach who is happy about her performance. Her parents are equally thrilled. Her father Mahantesh Hiremath said, “It is great to see my daughter set a new record in limbo skating. She was very interested in sports, so we admitted her in roller and skating club. Within two years, she has broken many records and we are proud of her.”
