Parupalli Kashyap

Hyderabad, India.

DOB – 8th September 1986

Event – Badminton

Kashyap has lived up to his reputation as India’s top badminton player by becoming the first Indian male player to reach the quarterfinals of the Olympics. He lost to World#1 Lee Chong Wei in a thriller in the quarterfinals of London 2012. He had qualified for the London Olympics by virtue of being the top ranked Indian after reaching the semi-finals of 2012 Indian Super Series in New Delhi. He then beat many top players to reach the semi-finals of Indonesia Super Series 2012. He also reached the quarterfinals of the World Championships in China in 2013 and achieved his career highest ranking of World No. 3.

The youngest Indian after Prakash Padukone to win a senior ranking tournament in India, Kashyap has moved swiftly from one level to the next – from being the 2005 Junior National Champion to being the Gold Medallist at 2008 National Games. He won the bronze medal at the Common Wealth Games 2010 and scalped 3 Top 20 players in the world. He also played a pivotal role in India winning the silver medal in the Team Championships at the Common Wealth games 2010.

Runner-up at three International tournaments in 2009, Kashyap clearly has the game to be amongst the best in the world. Glimpses of his potential could be seen during his victories over some of world’s best shuttlers at the Asian Badminton Championships in Suwon, South Korea, 2009, where he was a quarter-finalist.

At the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Kashyap became only the third Indian after Syed Modi and Prakash Padukone to win an individual Gold medal. After all these victories at the International level, Kashyap is more determined than ever to be the best and OGQ is delighted to support him in his endeavours.
