Golden Boy Jeremy Lalrinnunga: He manifested his vision into reality


Jeremy was born in 2002 in Aizwal, Mizoram. Sports was in his genes as his father was a boxer. Jeremy has always been obsessed with shiny things and as a child, growing up in Aizawl, he had a couple of ‘ shiny  toys’. Which were the medals of his father, Lalneihtluanga. His father won two golds at the sub-junior national level.

 “They were mounted on the wall of our house. But my brothers and I would play with them all the time. We would pretend we were champions. We even lost one of his medals while playing,” Jeremy said.
He has a poor background and hence his family condition kept him away from pursuing his aspirations. He started working with the neighbourhood Power Works Department as a laborer.

He started boxing  before lifting weights. According to some reports, he learned to lift weights by lifting heavy bamboos. He then made history by becoming the first Indian to win a gold medal at the Youth Olympics in the men’s 62kg division in 2018. Before participating in an international competition, he was a member of the Army’s Boys Sports Company and there he earned multiple medals.
