Meet this little girl.

Five-year-old Rebecca is a student of St. Ann's School located at Ramachandrapuram in Medak district.

Her father J. Balakrishna is a constable in the Border Security Force (BSF).

Though her father, Balakrishna, planned to get her trained in gymnastics, her passion tilted towards with limbo-skating. While they were residing in Gurdaspur, Punjab, Rebecca set her eyes on skating, which was practised by children staying in her neighbourhood.

Limbo-skating

This was two years ago. It has turned into limbo-skating at a later stage. Now, it has become part of her day-to-day life.

Even with his meagre salary, Balakrishna is completely committed to supporting his daughter with an aim of creating records of sorts by Rebecca.

Training

As the family is currently staying at BHEL, Balakrishna joined her in the skating training centre located there. Recently Rebecca exhibited her skills to the astounding crowds near Sangareddy.

“We went through all the literature available on limbo-skating and we are trying improve her skills. Currently Rebecca can pass underneath three cars blindfolded. And for her practice, I have to purchase iron rods and fix them below the bottom of the car,'' says Balakrishan proudly.
