In the second episode of Umeed India, our host Virender Sehwag explores the life experiences, dedication and daily routine of this uber-talented shot putter, OP Karhana. Know how OP’s highly supportive family and his coach Bhupinder Singh helped him in earning the national record of distance 20.69m in shot put.
