  Longest Backwards Limbo Skating-world record set by Kaitlyn Conner

-- Eleven-year-old Kaitlyn Conner, a.k.a “The Limbo Queen,” can roller skates under 23 lombo bars, spread over twelve feet-setting the new world record for the Longest Backwards Limbo Skating.
   Photo: "The significance of this feat is that it is difficult to gather enough momentum to skate backward for twelve feet in the splits position under “limbo” bars so low to the ground" said her mom, Victtoria Conner.

  Kaitlyn has been roller-skating since she was 3 years old, and doing the splits on skates since she was 4.

   “I started when I was 3. My mom and dad took me skating and I guess I wasn’t that good,” Kaitlyn said. “So they kept skating with me and I got better by the time I was 4.”

  It was when she was at the skating rink as a 4 year old that started it all.

  “I saw this girl, her name was Brittany, doing the splits on skates and I wanted to do that,” Kaitlyn said. Kaitlyn practiced every day — starting with learning the splits without her skates on.

  “And by the time I was 4-and-a-half, I had it,” she said.

   She taught herself how to backwards skate, do some jame skating and taught herself how to limbo on skates. The "Limbo" than became her favorite game and she practiced until she had the skill perfected. Her nickname is the "Limbo Queen"

   In June 2006, Kaitlyn appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” as part of the show’s “Don’t try this at home,” segment.

   In July 2008 Kaitlyn Conner appeared (see video) on ABC’s newest show “Wanna Bet”, which showcases contestants with extraordinary talents. A panel of celebrity judges place wagers on whether the contestant can perform a feat in front of a studio audience.

   Kaitlyn Conner skates at least three times a week at Watson’s Rolladium in Blue Springs, and besides her two national television appearances, she has also appeared in a city of Blue Springs commercial.

   Titles that Kaitlyn has won:
   -Limbo Championship for Blue Springs
   - Current Limbo Championship for Jefferson City, MO. summer of 2004
   - Speed Skating record the summer of 2003 and 2004
