Singh is the son of a peasant whose sporting career started as a kabaddi player at the school level, before trying high jump later. He then participated in a 4x400m relay team and finally decided to focus on 100m and 200m events. He has been working as an agent for Life Insurance Corporation of India to carry out his expenses for training and feed his family. Though, he couldn’t collect enough funds to support his basic needs and training together. He purchased good quality of spikes, met training expenses and other basic requirements for the big event with the encouragement, help and support from people in his village and a small business house. The Sarpanch of Ajaib, Samunder Singh Nain, said the village contributed Rs 4.5 lakh last year. He wanted to participate in London Olympics in 2012 but couldn’t, due to the shortage of funds and no government help in this regard.
His life has been full of hardships but he overcame every hurdle in his path to reach where he is today. In the qualifying tournament in Bengaluru in July 2016, Singh added a new feather to his hat by setting a new national record for India when he won the 200 metres race at the Indian Grand Prix which improved his own national mark of 20.66 seconds, set at the 21st Asian Championships held in China in 2015. His hardships do not end here as even after setting new records and getting selected for Olympics his participation was cancelled because of failing a doping test and he might face a ban of up to four years as per the World Anti-Doping Agency guidelines.
