Vijender Singh: Profile 2012 London Olympics (Boxing)Full Name: Vijender Singh Beniwal

Born: 29 October, 1985 (age 26)

Height: 6'0"

Sports: Boxing

Weight: 75kg (Middleweight)

Vijender Singh’s father was a bus driver and such were the resources, that he could not afford two bicycles for his sons, as they shared one, not with much happiness.

Things have changed for the 27-year-old boxer after he became the first Indian boxer to win a medal in Olympics history after beating Ecuador`s Carlos Gongora in the quarter-final.

In a country that is starved of Olympic medals, the bronze came as a huge relief and with it came awards and endorsement for the boxer hailing from Bhiwani, India’s boxing hub.

Vijender Singh has been miffed with the way sports barring cricket, are treated in India.

And when he fights with the opponents in the London Olympics along with the other pugilists, the reason should be big enough for him to add another medal to his list.
