11-year-old Indian roller skater sets new world record

July 27, 2012 22:59 IST
An 11-year-old Indian boy set a new world record by flattening himself enough to skim under poles just 6.75 inches from the ground.

Rohan Ajit Kokane completed the amazing feat in front of an astounded crowd at a Hong Kong mall, The Mail Online reported on Friday.

At first glance it looks as if his body is resting on the floor, but Kokane is in fact just inches above the ground on his roller skates.

But record breaking is not a new experience for Kokane -- he already holds the Guinness World Record for greatest distance skated underneath 20 cars, at 126 feet 11 inches.

He set the record at the Juhu Aerodrome in Mumbai last year.
