Manjit Singh is a cyclist enthusiast who was bagged a gold and bronze medal at the World Police & Firearms Games (WPFG) at Chengdu, China 2019. He followed the the footstep of his father, the late Delip Singh, a police officer who was active in cycling, including having the distinction of being the founder of the Kedah Cycling Association in 1962.

At 15, Manjit and his elder brother joined the Kedah state cycling. As the years went on, only Manjit continued the legacy of his father among the four brothers. In 1980, he won his first championship in the junior category in his hometown for Kota Setar, Kedah. This led to him being shortlisted for national training in the 1980s.

In 1987, he started to represent the PDRM cycling team. He won the 3rd placing in the Kriterium Dataran Merdeka Le Tour de Langkawi in 2000 and 2004. In 2017, he was voted as the best coach for PDRM.

He received the Pingat Bintang Pangkal Ke-Lima Darjah Kebesaran PDRM from YDP Agong at the Royal Istana on Oct 17, 2019.

All in, he served PDRM for 36 years as a policeman, athlete and coach. He cycled professionally as an athlete for 43 years.

Born into a cycling heritage, his final moments at the time of passing away were in fact spent with his bicycle, his passionate love, during training session with the PDRM cycling team.

His father Delip Singh began his winning streak when he emerged as the Penang Methodist afternoon school 15 miles cycling championship in 1955.

Reputed to be one of the best Penang junior cyclist, he later served as the secretary of the Kedah Cycling Association in 1960s.

In 1969, he managed the Malaysian Cycling team in the Southeast Asian Peninsular Games in Rangoon, Burma, now known as the SEA Games.

May the hard work put in by the father and son Sikh cyclists spur others to achieve bigger achievements in the world of cycling.
