Also known as "Gama Pahelvan", and "Lion of the Punjab", born Ghulam Muhammad, in Amritsar, Punjab, British India, was a renowned warrior, wrestler and a practitioner of Pehlwani wrestling. He was awarded the Indian version of the World Heavyweight Championship on October 15, 1910. To this date he is the only wrestler in history who remained undefeated his whole life and his career had spanned more than 50 years. He has been billed as the greatest Pehlwani wrestler in history. During the Partition of India Gama decided to move to Pakistan and lived in Lahore for the rest of his life.
