Pakistan Army’s Special Service Group (SSG) Captain Naveed Hussain broke the 30 years old record of physical endurance. He ran for 6 hours 28 minutes, covering a distance of 60 km.
The young Pakistani Captain has set a new record. He was carrying his SMG & a loaded kit bag as well. However, it is definitely not an easy practice to do. Pakistan Army is among one of the best Army across the globe. Our soldiers go through intense training to get a physically and mentally fit body.

SSG is the special operation forces of the Pakistan Army with five primary missions: foreign internal defense, reconnaissance, direct action, counter-terrorism, and unconventional warfare.
The training courses in the SSG emphasis strong physical conditioning and mental fitness, including the everyday based surprised strategic thinking quiz and a 36-mile march in 12 hours. Violation of the military code and ethics by the trainee soldier results in including the 9.3 kilometres (5.8 mi) march with full 36 pounds (16 kg) military gear.
But, the dropout rates of SSG is 85 to 90 Percent because of extremely tough training process. Every year, thousands of applicants apply to join the SSG but at the end, maximum of 100 to 120 cadets get their recommendation letter from the organization.
Moreover, the similar training and practices of the Pakistan Army were recently shown in an ISPR sponsored drama ‘Ehd-e-Wafa‘. The main purpose of the drama was to show the audience, what our soldiers go through in order to protect the country. The popularity of the show has crossed the borders of Pakistan. It was widely watched and loved by the Indian audience as well.
We are extremely proud of our soldiers, who never miss a chance to make the nation proud.
