About This Book

Running on Empty is a revealing insight into UK Shyam's journey-his beginnings as an aimless youth from a single-parent family to becoming Singapore's fastest man. Powering past obstacles that are disclosed in this exclusive account, Running on Empty takes you through Shyam's eventful track career from the 1990s to early 2000s: a period that saw him talent-scouted as a promising athlete, to making the heart-wrenching decision of quitting the sport, before his spectacular return as the golden boy of Singapore athletics. Never smooth-sailing, Shyam's life as a sprinter was marked by a lack of financial support as well as controversy with the media and the Singapore Athletic Association (SAA), all of which often threatened to distract from his sprinting ambitions.
