    Probably a highly exaggerated claim.

      I understand the boy likes running but this doesn't sound like a healthy thing for adults to encourage.

      Every day, Singh would start running at 5am and continue until noon. Then, after lunch and a quick snooze, he was on it again, running from 4pm.

        Those training hours are probably also a significant exaggeration.

          Interesting that in googling around for a bit I have yet to find a PR for Singh, but there are both documentaries and bio-pic movies about the guy. Also sounds like his life has been pretty tough.

Because of the ill-treatment thereafter, his mother sought out Biranchi Das, a local judo coach and orphanage operator, and asked him to take the boy on.[4] Biranchi reimbursed the salesman's purchase price of Singh and the child came to live with Das and his other orphans at a local Judo Hall.
