An athlete by definition by means any person who is trained to compete in sports.

Here, I would like to talk about an athlete, who is known as the flying Sikh of India. He is none other than Milkha Singh.

 I had heard about him, but I came to know more about him after I saw the movies Bhag Milkha Bhag, starting Farhan Akhter.

He was born in Sikh family in Punjab of the undivided India. He was a teenager when his family was massacred in front of his eyes.

He had to run for his life. He was chosen to represent India in the 200m and 400m races in the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games.

At that time he could not progress beyond the initial stage. He participated in the National Games of India in Cuttack in 1958 where he set national records for the 200m and 400m .

The same year he won a gold medal in the 400m competition at the Commonwealth Games in Cardiff, making him the first male Indian to have won an individual athletics gold medal at those Games.

He won the gold medal at 1958 Asian games in Tokyo beating the Pakistani runner Abdul Khaliq.

This prompted an invitation from Pakistan in1960 for another race. Milkha once again beat Khaliq in a nail-biting finish.

Impressed by the Indian athlete’s performance, then the president of Pakistan, General Ayub Khan complimented him.

 He speak that Milkha did not run, but flew. Thus Milkha gained the famous title- The Flying Sikh. During his later career he became the Director of Sports in the Punjab Ministry of Education, a post from which he retired by 1998.
