9788129119001: Pullela Gopi Chand: The World Beneath His Feat

This is the gritty story of badminton star Pullela Gopi Chand, who brought laurels to India by winning the coveted All England Championships 2001. The player for whom losing was not an option, who went against all rules and conventions. The champion who achieved the unthinkable by being awarded the Arjuna Award, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna and the Dronacharya Award in quick succession. Yet, seven years ago, a grievous injury at the 1994 National Games in Pune indicated that his career was over even before it had taken off, that he may never step onto a court again. But Gopi Chand conquered all his demons, and went on to become not only a badminton champion, but an exemplary coach as well. Pullela Gopi Chand: The World beneath his Feat, the authorised biography of Pullela Gopi Chand, is about his rise from humble beginnings to become a star on Indian badminton s horizon, as well as his endeavours to produce more sports icons like him through his one-of-a-kind badminton academy.
