Beant Singh Bhinder is touted as the fastest Indian in the young athletics circuit. Born in January 1999 in Karnal, Haryana, Beant Singh Bhinder had no sense of making a career in sports. Till the age of 13, Bhinder had not run a single race and went on to become World number 1 in his age bracket in the next three years.
Beant Singh Bhinder was born in a village in Karnal, Haryana to an agriculturist father. Beant’s life changed dramatically in 2011 when Diwan Singh, father of the Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar, came to settle a land deal to their village. Diwan Singh was an acquaintance of Beant’s father, Gurwinder Singh. Gurwinder Singh approached Diwan Singh and asked for his advice for his young son. Diwan Singh spoke to Sushil Kumar and suggested that Beant Singh should spend the summer vacation in Sushil’s company with wrestlers in Delhi’s Chhtrasaal Stadium.
Soon, Beant’s attention was drawn towards running and he began training under coach Sunita Rai for the 800m.
