Captain Naveed Breaks 30-Year Old SSG Record

Pakistan Armed Forces are known for their valor. Putting your country before your own self takes a lot of courage and they undergo a lot of training and hard work to get to that level of physical and mental strength.

Pakistan Army’s Special Services Group (SSG) undertakes special operations after going through intense training. SSG Captain, Naveed Hussain, has broken a 30-year-old record for physical endurance by running for over 6 hours without any break.


Becoming a part of SSG is very tough considering only a handful of soldiers make it through due to the extreme training and a series of tests covering strategic thinking, mental fitness, and physical conditioning.

Running in his gear, Captain Naveed covered a record-breaking distance of 60 km in 6 hours and 28 minutes. The young solider’s gear included his SMG and a heavily loaded kit bag.

Previously Pakistani soldiers have proved themselves among the best by winning accolades in different military competitions, UN missions, and in foreign training academies such as the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, UK, etc.

  • Why do we have to praise these boys in mens’ bodies for their accolades in games and sports? Aren’t they supposed to be doing what they keep on promising this nation? They lost all wars, never won one inch of land, yet they run these news and receive all praise from the poor uninformed people of a poor country… why? When will you slave mentality end people? Stop praising these people. Tell them “jao ja ke kashmir le ke dekhao”… the common man been shown a fake dream for over 73 years now and these so called warriors take a major chunk of your money to supposedly go after it… Please grow up

    • considering your comments… Its clear u r from India.. even with such a low budget.. Indian forces shivers in their bins… Kashmir will be taken don’t you worry… that same force did clear FATA from terrorist.. cleared Pakistan from Raw funded internal insurgencies.. did disintegrate soviet in to pieces.. India is likely next the way Modi running the affairs….
