Record Limbo

Shemika Charles is the 22-year old woman seen performing what seems to be the impossible feat of doing the limbo underneath an SUV. The video, posted to Barcroft TV’s YouTube channel shows Charles bending over backwards and moving quickly underneath the car with only her feet touching the ground.

“It does take a lot of concentration, a lot of balance, a lot of breath control… persistence,” Charles said.

As impressive as the SUV stunt is, it is not the lowest limbo recorded by Charles. The car in the video had a clearance of about nine inches, while her lowest limbo was 8.5 inches, a Guinness World record she set in 2010 on the “Live! with Regis and Kelly” show.

Charles began her limbo career at the age of 14. She told Barcroft TV that she has trained about six hours a day for the past four years, and must visit a chiropractor every week due to the strain it puts on her body. Her chiropractor, Dr. John Przybylak, described her as possessing “super-human freakish strength.” She currently makes her living performing at NBA halftime shows.

Shemika’s mother Sherrie Charles was also a limbo dancer, but had to retire after suffering from back injuries.

After performing her first limbo under the SUV, Charles performed the stunt again while holding trays in her hands. Clips of the stunt have been heavily shared on social media.
