Bangalore, Feb 12: A five-year-old boy from the city made it to the Guiness Boook of World Records by skating under 39 Toyota Qualis cars in just 28 seconds. The wonder kid, Gagan S, a kindergarten student at Florence School in Basveshwaranagar, achieved this feat last month.

The boy broke the record of Rohan, 9, from Belgaum who skated across 24 cars in 47 seconds.

Gagan's father Satish works at a washing machine service centre. He said Gagan was always enthusiastic about skating and joined the skating classes just one-and-half year ago.

Gagan's proud parents hoped Gagan's achievement would help skating gain popularity in India and more youngsters take up the sport.

It is not the first recognisation of Gagan's skating abilities though. In November last year, he had won the 'youngest skate award' in Belgaum. His parents now dream about sending him to the Olympics.
