Hubballi, Nov 15 : Ojal S Nalavadi, a 12-year-old girl from the city, set the Guinness World Records after she zipped across 400 metres in just 51.25 seconds in blindfold skating.

The Class VII student of JSS Sri Manjunatheshwara Central School in the city achieved the feat on the recently-developed TenderSURE road at Akshay Colony on Thursday.

"I was practising hard under the guidance of Akshay Suryavanshi for the past two years. I will eclipse this record in the coming days," a beaming Ojal told reporters.

Guinness World Records observer Victor Fenes registered the performance and issued the certificate to Ojal on Thursday. "This is the first Guinness record for fastest blindfolded skating in the female category," he said.

Daughter of Sunil Nalavadi and Deepa, Ojal has already got into the habit of setting and rewriting her records in roller skating. She also holds titles in the Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records. (UNI)
