He started his journey in sports as a taekwondo player and competed in taekwondo competitions from 2008 to 2012. However, he left taekwondo and took up weightlifting in 2013 after recognizing that his short height was ideal for the sport. Like her fellow Manipuri weightlifter Mirabai Chanu, who is best known for winning a silver medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Bindyarani also trained at the SAI North Eastern Regional Center in Imphal. After three years, he was selected for training at the National Center of Excellence (NCOE), Takyel, Imphal. Later, at the National Weightlifting Camp in Patiala, he trained under Vijay Sharma. She first participated in weightlifting in the 53 kg category at the 2016 IWLF Youth Nationals (Bhubaneswar).

Facts/General Knowledge

  • Due to her similar trajectory to that of fellow Manipuri weightlifter Mirabai Chanu, Bindyarani is often referred to as Mirabai 2.0.
  • Although many media houses consider Mirabai Chanu as Bindyarani’s role model, in an interview she revealed that she grew up considering Kunjarani Devi as her role model. Kunjarani Devi, who hails from Imphal, is one of the most celebrated Indian weightlifting athletes. Bindyarani Devi said in an interview,

    Although we come from the same state and cities around Imphal, I am not related to Mirabai Chanu. I didn’t follow him in weightlifting. I was inspired by Kunjarani Devi.”

  • When Bindyarani Devi first reached the national camp at NIS Patiala in 2019, she did not have a pair of weightlifting shoes. After this, Olympic silver medalist Mirabai Chanu came forward to help him and gifted him training shoes.
