Indian roller skater breaks world record

London, July 27 (IANS) An 11-year-old Indian boy broke a world record by flattening himself enough to skim under poles just 6.75 inches from the ground, Daily Mail reported Friday.

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

He completed the amazing feat in front of an astounded crowd at a Hong Kong mall.

The event was aimed at promoting exercise among the elderly, the newspaper said.

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 in Mumbai at the Juhu Aerodrome in Mumbai, India last year.
