Biography

Kashyap PARUPALLI

Parupalli Kashyap's badminton career is a story of perseverance, of straining ever sinew in order to extract the maximum possible reward.

At the age of 14, the shuttler was was diagnosed with asthma and bouts of dizziness and disorientation affected him on court.

However, as he put it years later, it was ‘not a condition that stops you from living life.’ He lived that up by not only winning a Commonwealth Games gold medal but also reaching the men’s quarter-finals at the Olympics - both significant moments in the history of Indian badminton.

Brought up in Hyderabad, a city that seems to operate an assembly line of top badminton players, Parupalli Kashyap trained under both former All England champions Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand, the latter eventually becoming his full-time coach.
