The Kid Should See This

The record-setting Queen of Limbo

Shemika Campbell hails from a long line of limbo. Both her mother and her grandmother were limbo dancers, carrying on the traditionally Trinidadian form of dance. Shemika is keeping up the family legacy, taking limbo to a whole new low. She has set three Guinness World Records, including the record for lowest limbo at only 8.5 inches [21.59 centimeters]. Now, she’s traveling the world, spreading the culture of her native Trinidad and Tobago
