Indian shot-putter Tajinderpal Singh Toor, who won gold medal at the Asian Games 2018 with a record throw, wanted to be a cricketer since childhood. It turned out to be a big inspiration as the 23-year old shot-putter from Punjab not only went on to win India’s seventh gold medal with a throw of 20.75 metres but also bettered the Asian Games record of 20.57 metres, set by Sultan Abdulmajeed of Saudi Arabia in 2010. Tajinderpal celebrated his win with a slap on his chest and thigh just like the kabaddi players. “It’s the way I celebrate,” he said. The 23-year-old used to be an opening batsman and his favourite cricketers were Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh. Tajinderpal gave up cricket for shot put as his father wanted him to pursue an individual sport.
