‘Initially, I didn’t get any help from the system and had to struggle a lot’

After securing a berth in the London Olympics, shot putter OP Singh visits Bathinda where he studied and honed his skills for many years

Standing 6 feet 7 inches tall, shot-putter Om Prakash Singh Karhana, or OP as he is popularly and fondly called, can dwarf anybody standing next to him. Apart from his height, the sporting achievements of this 25-year-old shot-putter will also put many to shame.
