About this Speaker
Ajit walks the talk on active living. The 93 year old is Singapore’s oldest and only Sikh Olympian. At 28 years old, he represented Singapore in hockey at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games. He also competed in many hockey matches against Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Belgium, Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Malaysia. Age is just a number. At the age of 89 years old, he picked up race walking, a sport which requires one foot to be in contact with the ground at all times. And of course he joined his first race walking competition and won the gold medal in his age group. He believes “you should keep moving… don’t sit too long”. He joined the Asian Masters Athletics Championships in 2016 when it was hosted in Singapore. He race walked five kilometres in 50 minutes and won the gold medal. Staying in touch with technology, he keeps a watch on his health with a Fitbit to keep track of his heart rate and calories burnt.
