Baikuntha Manandhar, a legend of Nepali athletics, was born in 2009 BS in Kalimati, Kathmandu. Baikuntha Manandhar’s race started in 2027 BS. Baikuntha Manandhar used to run and take part in secret races under the pretext of going to school and watching movies. The ghost of the race that started in this way did not allow the minds of these great heroes to give priority to reading and Manandhar had to settle for the average reading of Nepali. Due to his continuous hard work and diligence.
Baikuntha Manandhar also emerged as a person who could beat Jit Bahadur KC, who was ruling the field of athletics at that time. Along with KC, Manandhar represented Nepal in the 22nd Olympics held in Montreal, Canada in 1976.
He gave the first gold medal to Nepal in the first South Asian Games held in Kathmandu. But Baikuntha Manandhar, who won the gold medal at that time, had to find out about it from the next day’s newspaper.
Manandhar holds the record for winning three consecutive gold medals in the 1984, 1985 and 1987 fair sports marathons. No one has been able to break the record of two hours and 15 minutes set by this great hero, who has ruled for 41 years, in the third clean in Kolkata.
