There is no denying to the fact that Punjabis have given a number of gems to the world. While there are versatile artists in Punjabi entertainment industry from Diljit Dosanjh to Ammy Virk, Punjabis are great with sportsmanship as well.
Among the rare gems of Punjab, Yugraj Singh is one of them who have got his name recorded in Asia Book of Records for recording nonstop display of nun-chaku martial arts for 37 hours continuously. This 26-years old champion was born on October 26, 1992, Patiala, and is currently working in Chandigarh.
He set the record on December 7, 2018 4:20 AM to December 8, 2018 5:30 PM. We contacted him and had a talk with him. Here are some excerpts from the conversation.
When did you start practicing for martial art?
I was around 14 years old when I first started doing gym and practicing nun-chaku.
What do you plan ahead for world record?
I plan to break my own record first and make a new record, then I am aiming for new records. I have been practicing to break my old record and will do that soon.
What inspired you to start this?
I wanted to do this for myself and the sportsmen who have left their sports behind. My parents were into sports so I had a sports background since a long time. I used to do boxing and martial art and then continued with this.
