Good Sports: BADMINTON COACH RECEIVES IOC HONOR

India’s chief national badminton coach Pullela Gopichand recently received an honorable mention in the male category of the 2019 International Olympic Committee’s Coaches Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his role in developing badminton in the country.

“To be recognized by the IOC is something really huge,” Gopichand told Outlook magazine.

The 46-year-old coach, who won the All England Open championship in 2001, founded the Gopichand Badminton Academy in Hyderabad in 2008. He has helped develop top players such as Saina Nehwal, P.V. Sindhu, and Kidambi Srikanth.
