A six-year old limbo skater from the city is all set for a challenging feat which many at her age would not dare. She is ready to limbo skate for 60-minutes non-stopat KLE Society's Skating Rink here on Wednesday (May 7) at 7-30 a.m. The event has been organised by Gaints Group of Belgaum (Pariwar) with the support of Belgaum Roller Skating Academy to promote “The spirit of universal brotherhood”.

Karuna, the daughter of Sonali and Rajan Waghela, studies in Class 1 at the city-based Divine Providence Girls English Medium School. According to the academy’s skating coach Suryakant Hindalgekar here on Monday, Karuna looks confident to accomplish the challenging task.

Once she starts, the limbo skater will be changing her position every nine seconds. She will adhere to a cycle wherein she will perform limbo skating for nine seconds with her legs 180 degrees stretched and parallel to the ground and regain to her normal position to skating the following nine seconds.

Every time she positions herself for limbo skating by stretching her legs, she will slide under a bar which will be fitted at a distance of 9 inches from the ground.

Gaints Group Spl. Committee member Patki Patil from Mumbai will be the chief guest of the inaugural function of the event.
