Milkha Singh also known as The flying Sikh and was an Indian track and field sprinter. He first came across the sport when he served in the Indian military. He’s a sport icon in his country and is described as “the finest athlete India has ever produced”. Even though he was orphaned after witnessing his parents and siblings getting killed, lived under low-life circumstances and had a tough childhood he never gave up. He broke the Indian national record during 400 metres final at the 1960 Olympic Games and held that record for almost 40 years!
I have linked a clip from the movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag for inspiration. Sorry for the missing english subtitles. If you really want to see it with english subtitles, subscribe and I’ll try to help you 🙂 I hope you like it because I love it!
