Rijiju’s display of fitness earned him the adulation and respect of social media users, which is reflected by some of the comments that the post received. One user wrote, “Wow, really impressive one indeed. I am myself a Taekwondo, National champion and Black Belt might find difficulty doing this feat….Thanks for this demo..”, while another posted “Great leader. India’s gonna rock coming olympic games.”
In the bottle cap challenge, a bottle is placed on a table with its cap loosely fixed on it. The person trying it out is required to untwist the cap with a roundhouse kick. Note: The cap should just fly off the bottle, which should remain stationary at that particular moment.
It is to be mentioned that many celebrities have aced the bottle cap challenge, such as ‘Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar, and Tiger Shroff, among many others.
