Shrishti Sharma, India’s outstanding limbo skater, not only excels in her sport but also passionately supports the humanitarian project, Save a Girl Child. Once again, at 18 years old, she has left her mark on the Guinness World Records, showcasing her extraordinary skills. Breaking her previous record of 7.38 seconds, set in 2021, with an impressive time of 6.94 seconds, she now holds the title of the fastest limbo skater over 50 meters.
Her journey to success began at the tender age of 11 when she achieved her first Guinness World Records title for the lowest limbo skating over 25 meters, elegantly gliding beneath 25 bars set at a height of merely 17 cm (6.69 in). This record remains unbeaten to this day. In 2017, she demonstrated her talents on ice by achieving the lowest limbo ice skating over 10 meters at a height of 17.78 cm (7 in), setting yet another unchallenged record.
Shrishti’s commitment to the Save a Girl Child project is just as remarkable as her achievements in limbo skating. She leverages her record-breaking attempts to raise awareness and support for the organization.
For those unfamiliar with limbo skating, it entails roller skaters passing underneath a series of obstacles without making contact with them. Skilled athletes, like Shrishti Sharma, demonstrate finesse by spreading their legs to pass under horizontal poles. In her latest feat, she skillfully maneuvered under 51 horizontal bars, positioned just 30 cm (12 in) above the ground, without touching or displacing any of them. Throughout the entire attempt, she was not allowed to use her hands or arms to touch the floor, showcasing her remarkable flexibility and balance.
Shrishti Sharma’s dedication, talent, and devotion to her passion have filled India with immense pride, making her not just a skilled skater but also an inspiring advocate for a meaningful cause. Her journey of breaking records and making a positive impact continues to inspire many.
