Early life

Ravinder Singh Khaira was born on March 19, 1986 in Rampura, in the Bhatinda district of Punjab, India. His father Hardeep Singh Khaira is a physical education teacher who played a major role in his son taking up sports as a career option. He took up volleyball initially and competed in state and national championships. However, in 2005, Ravinder opted for javelin throw and began training. In 2008, he moved to Melbourne, Australia, for training under better facilities and got himself enrolled in the Victoria Institute of Sports. He simultaneously worked as a part-time taxi driver doing his Diploma in Automotives.


In Australia, Khaira won the Victorian Javelin Throw Championship twice. After having secured gold in the 2013 National open athletics championship in Ranchi, he was named in the core list of athletes for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2014 Asian Games.
