Life of Amritpal Singh
Born on 6 October 1983 in Sangrur district of Punjab in India, Amritpal is only the third Indian to go beyond the magical eight-metre mark in the long jump; the others being T. C. Yohannan of Kerala and Sanjay Kumar Rai (8.02m and 8.03m in 2000) of Uttar Pradesh. He works for Punjab Police as an Inspector.
