Video of the day: Limbo world record holder

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- How low can you go? Probably now as low as Shemika Charles. The 18-year-old just set a new world record for the lowest limbo for a woman.

Charles recently got down on "Live with Regis and Kelly." Talk about setting the bar low -- a mere 8.5 inches. The video above is of Charles practicing.

Charles, who is fro Trinidad and lives in Buffalo, NY,  is extremely limber and has been doing the limbo since she was 14 years old.

While she usually does it blindfolded while holding candles, the show producers were concerned about having fire in the studio. Charles substituted two platters for the candles.
