He competed collegiately at Oklahoma from 2009-11 after earning a trio of California junior college championships in the hammer throw (twice) and discus while at Fresno City College.
Singh was a 2010 indoor All-American in the hammer throw before winning the Big 12 hammer throw title later that spring while earning all-conference accolades in both the hammer and discus. Singh earned his undergraduate degree from Oklahoma in 2011 and holds school records in the hammer (218 feet, 10 inches) and indoor weight throw (70-8.25). He was also a team captain.
