Correct Answer - Option 1 : Ayub Khan

The correct answer is Ayub Khan.

  • Singh was persuaded by Jawaharlal Nehru to set aside his memories of the Partition era to race successfully in 1960 against Abdul Khaliq in Pakistan, where a post-race comment by the then General Ayub Khan led to him acquiring the nickname of The Flying Sikh.
  • He represented India in the 200m and 400m competitions of the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games.
  • He was and still is the only athlete to win Gold in the 400m at the Asian as well the Commonwealth Games.
  • He also won gold medals in the 1958 and 1962 Asian Games.


  • Muhammad Ayub Khan was a five-star Pakistan Army general and the second President of Pakistan who forcibly assumed the presidency from the first president Iskander Mirza.
