Bodybuilding is not a very popular sport in India but Assam’s Golap Rabha has ensured that the sport gets limelight after he bagged the title of Mr. World 2018 in the WBBF Championship of Bodybuilding competition held at Lithuania, Europe.
Apart from bagging the coveted title he also won first place in Men Bodybuilding, Men Muscle Model and Pro Mr. World in 80kgs. For those who don’t know who he is, we look into some interesting facts about his personal life.
Rabha comes from a small town of Boko and lives with his mother, younger brother, wife and daughter. and a financially weak family background that was the biggest hurdle in his career, but his hard work, dedication, and belief in himself, helped him achieve success.
Speaking to the northeast today Rabha said “I started giving wings to my dreams from 2008 where I was able to grab the titles of Junior Mr. Assam and Junior Mr. Kamrup. The fire in me in achieving my dream did not stop here. This grew even more forcefully and was able to win the titles of Mr. Assam, Mr. Kamrup, Mr. Fittech Classic in 2013 and Mr. India in 2017”,.
Thanks to encouragement by his teacher Mr. Jiten Kalita, he started exercising regularly and participated at the state-level competitions where he failed to make his mark. These failures did not budge him down but made him even stronger to compete.
Rabha owns a small gym where he works out for six hours a day.
In 2017 and 2018 he won Mr India and Mr Asia title. The Assam builder has set his sights on the title for Mr. Olympia Amateur which is shortly going to be held in Mumbai.
