He also holds a number of United Kingdom records in various races such as 200 metres, 400m, 800m, one mile and 3000m in the men's above 90 category. As far as his best timings in the marathon races are concerned, he ran for six hours and two minutes during the 2003 London Marathon.
It is amazing to see Singh not even breaking sweat during races and it’s a rare sight for a person of his age to have so much of energy. But all this credit goes to his dedicated hours of training under his coach Harmander Singh. There are a number of critics that suspect his age. But his trainer has always brought up the point that India did not have a concept of birth certificates when he was born.
Though Singh may have finally decided to hang his boots this February, but it is for sure that his legacy will not only live forever but also keep on inspiring many sportspersons around the world.
