Re: Winner those who never quit [ A Special Presentation ]
Thats a really nice presentation! I would like to add another person to this list:
The Flying Sikh: Milkha Singh
He was just a teenager living in a remote village of what became Pakistan, following partition in post-colonial India, when the madness came to his home.
Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs were stirred to bloody strife and Milkha's parents and other family members were slaughtered in a pogrom.
That night he lost his parents, three brothers, and sisters.
He found himself a refugee in India, but from tragedy, Milkha made his life a great success, when he was introduced to running after joining the army.
There was no coaching; he ran barefoot. While he knew nothing of the Olympic Games, the Asian Games or anything else about the sport, Milkha Singh went on to become a hero in his country as an Olympian.
