Who is Gulveer Singh’s parents? Know everything about his mother and father

At The Ten in San Juan Capistrano, California, athlete Gulveer Singh, who won bronze in the Asian Games, broke a 16-year-old national record in the men’s 10,000-meter event and placed second in his heat. The 25-year-old beat the previous national record of 28:02.89, which had been associated with Surendra Singh since 2008, by more than 20 seconds on Saturday. Gulveer’s run was insufficient to qualify for the Olympics, though, as he was more than 41 seconds off the Paris Games qualifying mark of 27:00.00. Like most young people from Sirsa hamlet in the Atrauli area of Western Uttar Pradesh, Gulveer’s dream was to enlist in the Army. He did run in his hamlet, along the roads and fields, but only as a warm-up for the Army recruitment exam. He became a sipahi (junior-most post) in the Indian Army’s 23 Grenadiers regiment in 2018.

Because Gulveer is still relatively new to the sport, his coach has a lot of faith in his abilities. This is due to the fact that Gulveer only became interested in running after enlisting in the Indian Army. “Everyone should participate since there are lots of rewards after doing well. I discovered that you can train specifically to be a runner if you are an excellent athlete. That piqued my interest as well. Guard duty is particularly difficult in the army. I therefore had a strong desire to win that race. That was the first time I had trained for a race, as I recall,” he remarks. Gulveer’s remarkable performance attracted the attention of Younus Khan, the coach of Army Sports Institute’s long distance running program in Pune, after he won his first cross-country event.
