SISU:RADIO:39 Nav “SISU” Akbar – The Scottish OCR/Endurance Warrior

Nav Akbar once called the bluff of an armed robber that threatened to rob his store. Telling the thief what physical discourtesies would happen, Nav made it very clear that he wasn’t the sort of person who you tangle with.

Growing up in Scotland, UK, you learn how to survive, get tough or let life drag you down. His years of working as a mild-mannered grocery store clerk only fed him more and more fuel that would drive him to become of of the main faces of OCR in the UK today.

Cookie caught up with his good friend and they chatted about Nav’s introduction to OCR and endurance and the differences between US and UK events.
