UNBELIEVABLE! This 22-Year-Old Girl Just Created A New World Record By Limboing Under A Car

Shemika Charles can do what rarely anybody can do! The limbo queen, who already has a spot in the Guinness World Records book since 2010 for limboing down to unbelievable eight and a half inches (almost the height of a beer bottle!), has created a new record.

The 22-year-old Shemika is the first person in the world to ever limbo under a car. Don’t believe?

Shemika trains for up to six hours a day, which keeps her body in perfect condition. She travels around America performing with her family. The regular performances do strain her body, and hence she sees a chiropractor every week to have her hips realigned. Her mother too was a successful limbo dancer back in her home country Trinidad and Tobago, but she had to give it up due to an injury.

Shemika said, “I began my limbo career at the age of fourteen and I immediately recognised that I had a unique talent. My uncle Bob said he wanted to train me and after a while we decided to set a world record. I know that it’s dangerous but I’m in really good shape and I have no intention of stopping. I love to limbo and I love to see the looks on people’s faces when I get down low – it looks impossible so they’re always really surprised. My mother sometimes worries because of the injuries she has received but I know what I’m doing.”

She charges a stunning $2,300 for her 15-minute performance. Way to go girl!
