Pullela Gopichand – Badminton
A former All England Badminton Champion in 2001, Mr. Gopichand is undoubtedly one of the 5 best Indian coaches. From setting up a one-stop world class facility for budding badminton talent in Gachibowli, Hyderabad to churning out jewels like Saina Nehwal, P.V.Sindhu and Parupalli Kashyap, his journey has been nothing short of spectacular.
First Saina in London 2012 and now Sindhu in Rio 2016, Mr. Gopichand has done his significant bit to start a badminton revolution in India. His method of disciplining the players through a strict regimen and training schedule is well warranted. He will be known as one of the greatest gifts to this country in the sport of badminton, both as a player and a coach.
