How Indian badminton rocketed on the Gopichand shuttle - The Hindu

Brilliant report. 

Gopi is a transformational coach & mentor. His commitment and the rigor of the process helps him churn out some great players out of his academy. 

He starts his day at the academy at 4 AM !The academy is almost like a modern Gurukul! 

He has stayed away from unhealthy endorsements speaks volumes of him, his values. 

We need more such passionate coaches (not transactional trainers) to take our sports to the next level. We can't depend on selfie-loving ministers or politicians, bureaucrats or even former players.
