WIBCON’09 – The Truly Inspirational Sarmad Tariq

Organized by the Pakistan Soceity for Training and Development (PSTD) and Terrabiz, the WIBCON’09 was a fantastic event which took place on the 4th of June at the Karachi Marriott. Here is one inspirational story of Sarmad Tariq, a speaker who touched the hearts of the audience.

Sarmad Tariq is a trainer, life coach & a motivational speaker with Navitus. On March 26, 2004 he drove a distance of 1,847 km non-stop from Khyber to Karachi in his hand controlled car in 33 hours and made a world record for a quadriplegic. In November 2005, he completed the New York Marathon in 7.5 hours!

What makes Sarmad’s  story an amazing one is the fact that he accomplishes all this, but is a quadriplegic (paralyzed shoulder down), and has been on a wheelchair for the past 18 years. I’m not sure how good the quality of the sound or picture is because I was at quite a distance, recording this with the FlipVideo, but do go through it. An amazing human being!
