- When Roshibina was seven years old, she made a punching bag out of torn clothes to practice her wushu moves. Impressed by her dedication, a local Wushu champion Malemnganbi Devi started teaching Roshibina the game. After some time, a coach M Ronel Singh from a nearby village Nachou started teaching her. Roshibina started her formal Wushu training from M. Premkumar at the SAI training centre in Imphal.
- Naorem Roshibina Devi started crying during an interview with a news channel as she was upset because of the unpleasant and violent situation in Manipur caused by persistent ethnic violence. Her town Bishnupur is amongst the badly affected towns which made her 2022 Asian Games winning a happy as well as a sad event. She was quoted saying in the interview that,
Anything can happen. I am worried about my parents and siblings.”
- Before starting her Wushu journey, Roshibina tried her hand at Boxing; however, in the early days of her teenage years she attended a district-level wushu competition and that’s where she fell in love with the sport.
