Kambala jockey

MUMBAI: One has heard of quack science. India could soon be called a country that celebrates "quack sports records". 

The latest in this dubious list is Srinivasa Gowda, a Kambala jockey from Moodabidri in Karnataka. Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju no less announced that his ministry was calling the "running sensation" for trials after he set a new "record" as the fastest runner in the history of the traditional sport of the coastal region.
