Prayatn speed was more than some two wheeler vehicles, and after breaking the previous world records in this category, Prayatn will be unstoppable. He is trained by his father since he was five and he finds ice-skating fascinating than skating.

This teen dream of winning an Olympic medal for the country in ice-skating and kids like him always make India proud. When you give your dreams all you have got, success runs after you and Prayatn is the live example as he became the world champion of backward skating.
