New Delhi, May 28 (ANI): Seven-year-old limbo skating prodigy Tiluck Keisam is aiming for an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.

He registered his name in the Limca Book of Records in January by performing a 50-metre limbo skate under a horizontal bar set at the height of 7.5 to 9 inches from ground level.

“I love skating and I have been skating since 2013. Today, I’m very happy that I completed more than 100 meters. I want to become a famous skater. I want to play at the international level and want to

bring a gold medal for my country,” said Keisam.

He has been training under the guidance of Coach Rohtash Dinodia in the capital.

“Today, the event that Tiluck performed was a trial for the Asian events and the Guinness Book of World Records. He performed a 100-metre-long skating and back limbo. And for the first time, he did U-turn skating of about 80 metres, which is a big achievement for him. We did three events today, and next time, we will try to make him win at the Asian level in the same events,” said Dinodia

Tiluck is a Class two student of Bluebells School International in Delhi.

He has been skating since 2013 and has participated in various competitions and won a total of 36 medals and many certificates.

Tiluck was adjudged as the overall best Limbo skater in Delhi for the year 2014-15.

Apart from skating, he loves painting and drawing.

“We feel very proud of him, because now, we have come to know that he has got many talents. He has won numerous medals not only in skating, but also in drawing and painting competitions, and at the National Science Olympiad also,” said Ricky Keisam, Tiluck’s father.

“I have seen Tiluck for several years. Whether in summer or winter he always makes it a point to practice. It’s a wonderful achievement. He is very talented and we are very happy for him,” said D Sarkar,

Director of Sports, DDA.

Recently, he performed Limbo Skating at the Siri Fort Sports Complex in Delhi where he showed forward limbo skating over a distance of 113 meters under a bar set at a height of nine inches.

Tiluck is now preparing to get his name in the Asia Book of Records.

Tiluck’s success is a source of inspiration for other children.
