In this competition we forgot to see one more star from Manipur. He is Arambam Boby, who has also won the Gold in the 80 kg category.

Boby, who has been one of the country’s finest bodybuilders in recent times, clinched his fourth world championship title with his victory in Thailand.

Television star Thakur Anoop Singh, known for playing the role of Dhritarashtra in the Star Plus’ mythological series Mahabharat, has been in the news lately for winning the Gold medal at the recently-concluded WBPF World Bodybuilding and Physique Championships in Bangkok.

Nitin Mhatre won the gold medal in 55 kg category at the same event, a few days before Anoop’s triumph. His victory went unnoticed in the national media. Today Mhatre, Mr. World in his weight category, works at a gymnasium to fund his bodybuilding career. That itself says a lot about the state of neglect that the sport suffers from in India.
