Hyderabad: A video reportedly showing Pakistan and American commandos participating in an obstacle course race has gone viral on Facebook and Twitter. According to the claims, Pakistani commandos overcame all the hurdles and won the championship.
The same video has also been uploaded on YouTube. According to the video, the winning team also comprised Indian soldiers.
The claim that the video shows Pakistani and American commandos taking part in an obstacle course race is FALSE.
NewsMeter found a high-resolution version of the video where we could clearly see the logo. We found that the same logo appears twice in the video.
We extracted keyframes from the video containing the logo and performed a reverse image search in Yandex. We found that the logo was of the 60th World Military Pentathlon Championship hosted by the International Military Sports Council (CISM) in Brazil in 2013.
According to the list of results for the event published on the website military-pentathlon, neither Pakistan nor India nor the US competed in the championship.
Here is the invitation published by CISM mentioning the list of events that took place at the championship. Here, too, we can see the same logo as seen in the viral video.
Therefore, the claim that the viral video shows Pakistani and American commandos competing in an obstacle course race is FALSE.
