Jaskirat Dhingra and Anurag Sobti are a team of Super Sikhs on The Amazing Race Australia 5.
They won the first 2 legs, however did drop to the danger zone couple of times through small mistakes. With strong physical and mental capacities plus a strong alliance, they were able to stay consistently throughout the race to make into the Final 3. In the finale from the first Roadblock, they found themselves trailing, and the lead by the other two teams were just too big to overcome, finishing 3rd.

Having met at a Summer Sikh youth camp 10 years ago, best mates Jaskirat and Anurag are extremely proud of their culture and want to show Australia what the Sikh fighting spirit is all about!
While Anurag is a gentle giant, Jaskirat is an undercover nerd. They live for adventure, the outdoors and pushing themselves to new limits!
From trekking the Inca Trail to an impromptu hike up Mt Agung, Jaskirat and Anurag’s mental and physical strength, as well as their ability to adapt is their biggest advantage.
Both men love being the centre of attention and would use the prize money to travel the globe.
Get to know Team Super Sikhs
Tell us a bit about your life and upbringing? Is there anything unique that stands out?
Jaskirat: Being a Sikh is core to my identity. Many people will look at my teammate and I as Sikhs who are on The Amazing Race. I see us as Australians on The Amazing Race who happen to be Sikh. Religion for me sets the foundation for my values I live by every day, but it does by no means confine me in a path different to any other Australian.
What do you think will be your biggest advantage or strength in the Race?
Anurag: Jas and I have been in challenging situations while travelling around the world, and we both know how to get the best out of each other in any situation. We just don’t give up!
